When I grow up...

So the Pussycat Dolls sing a song entitled When I Grow Up. In this song part of the chorus goes like this:

When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I grow up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

The part that I want to relate to this post is the "I wanna be famous" line. Today I realized that I want to be blogger famous. I read a few blogs (some stalk, some not) where the authors are (at least in my opinion) FAMOUS! I don't know how they did it, but suddenly, their blogs are read by people all over the nation, they get asked to guest blog and such AND they go to events like BlogHer because they are just. that. cool.

Man Alive! I want to be that cool! Like my friend Angiegirl at Angieville. She gets asked to review books, she goes to cool events where people know her and all sorts of things. She's got an in!

Then there is Ree Drummond. The Pioneer Woman. She is freaking awesome and probably will one day be a legend. I got involved in her blog via her love story that someone else shared with me on day. I'm pretty sure she has no idea who i am (this is where i reveal that i am somewhat of a blog stalker...) but I still love reading about her. She's pretty famous and goes to cool things where people KNOW her.

Another person I blog-stalk is Design Mom. She always has nifty ideas about things for the home AND she goes cool places. I'm not exactly sure how she got her start, but she's so cool now that it really doesn't matter.

So....there you go, one person that I know and two that I really don't, but all three are pretty awesome, pretty cool people and I want to be them when I grow up. How do I become awesome and get people to read my blog. How do I write more witty, interesting things for people to enjoy? I am really a cool person in real life (just ask SwingKid or Angie or my mother...I am the favorite daughter after all!) but somehow I feel like it doesn't quite relate here. So blogging world...those of you that lurk and might read still...what should I do to be more ME on this blog? I know some of you know me in real life and read to see what I'm doing these days, but that also means that you know how wickedly awesome I am. Share your thoughts or your dreams. Do you long to be blogger famous?

I know I do. :o)
