For the love of god...

I will rarely tell you that you must go read a blog we review here. But, today, I'm going to do this. For the love of god, you must go read Jason, For the Love of God.

This blog isn't perfect, but it's real. And, for those of you who have blogs, and read here to get tips for your own blogging or to find new blogs that will keep you hooked, reading this blog would be a good exercise for you in how to blog. Because That Chick? That Chick Over There? She knows how to blog, and she knows how to keep it real.

I don't have a lot of insights in regards to content because I could read this blog all day and night and not get bored. I mean, not every post is fan-fucking-tastic, because none of us can be fantastic day and night. But, it's so real you can taste it. That chick lets you live inside her head and feel what she is feeling.

Do you know how gracious it is to do that, to let people in so they can see the real you, the good, the bad, the ugly, without pretension or posturing? It fucking awes me when people do that.

So, go. Read. Learn.

Chick: The only real feedback I have is to keep doing what you are doing. Consider putting your awards on a separate page so they don't take away from the content you've written. You have way too much crap going on in your sidebar. Do a drop-down button for your archives to further clean things up. Take a few minutes and do a post "about you" so that we can get up to speed faster. And, keep on writing.

Because some days, you are the bug. And some days, you are most decidedly, a rock star. Today, you're a rock star, in my book at least.



  1. Gah! I'm all verklempt!

    And? My sidebar does totally suck ass. The HMTL thing is confusing to me, and I don't yet know how to roll up my old stuff, but eventually I will learn and all will be right with the world.

    Thanks for the review!

  2. You so nailed it with this review. My first time visiting there I literally did stay up all night reading. And I didn't stop till I'd read every post in her archives. She is so freakin' fabulous it hurts my brain. Kudos to you for putting the spotlight on her!

  3. Yep! Chick is one of my favorite reads. I wish I could write as well as she does!

  4. Chick rocks. We love her. It is a fantastic peek into the heart and soul of a woman.

    Helluva writer too...

  5. Hooray - Chick totally deserved your great review! Go Chick!

  6. So true! She is one hell of a writer.

  7. I never listen to anyone..ever..but for some reason I went to jasonfortheloveofgod...and loved it...thanks for the good advice..and glad I took it..

  8. I only stumbled onto this blog by faithfully reading Chick so you know I agree with this review.

    Your accuracy on this review lead me to read more and not I'm hooked. Thanks so freaking much for now being yet another of my guilty pleasures.

    And the thought of having you review my blog, scares the shit out of me.

  9. Great review - you nailed it! I peeked in to read a post or two and, what the shit, it's now 2 hours later. (Note to self: Get a life.)

    I totally want to live next door to Chick and be bestest friends and braid daisies into her hair.

    Another one for my Reader!

  10. Shari:

    Don't be scared, seriously. Our bark is worse than our bite. And really, we mean well.

  11. I added her to my Reader, which means I must like it.


Grow a pair.
