A new phenonmenon: Girl crushes via the blogosphere
Back in 2005, the New York Times published an article on girl crushes. A girl crush occurs when one heterosexual female adores/is infatuated with another heterosexual female. Sometimes the feelings are mutual, sometimes they are not.
I love making new girlfriends, especially the smart and sophisticated types I meet in New York. Therefore, I have had several girl crushes over the years (you know who you are)! Now thanks to cyberspace, I have been experiencing a new type of girl crush - the blogosphere girl crush.
A girl crush on a blogger is very similar to your average girl crush, but better! You can stalk and obsess over your crush without fear of exposure or rejection. In fact, bloggers want you to obsess and revisit their blogs! Talk about a win-win situation. My recent girl crushes from blogland include:
Jordan Reid at Ramshackle Glam. She's smart, feminine, and clever.
Emily at cupcakes and cashmere. She's stylish, fresh, and fun.
Heidi Swanson at 101 Cookbooks. She's daring, romantic, and innovative.
Rachel Jones at Black Eiffel. She's creative, passionate, and curious.
Ladies, thank you for all of your hard work and for letting me snoop.
