Dooce

This isn’t really a current event, except that it’s something that’s currently going on in my life: Dooce.com is quickly becoming one of my favorite blogs to read. I don’t read that many blogs, I should probably qualify, but this one is one of my favorites of those few that I do read. Heather writes this great entry on getting fan-mail today.

Yesterday I got my first fan mail from an 11-year-old blogger (hi! Davis) in which he said to me, "I hope that you keep those keys clickin' until the arthritic kicks in (give it time?)." An 11-year-old said to me, "Give it time." The wisdom of kids these days!

Receiving that email makes me feel THIS MUCH closer to Scott Baio who received probably 20 hand-written love letters from my pubescent sister in the early Eighties. He and John Stamos. And Andy Gibb. That's all I ever wanted.

The concept of bloggers getting fan-mail somehow eludes me—I get excited when the system sends me an e-mail to say that there’s a new comment on one of my entries—but I think this a really great little story she tells.
