SlayBelle responded to me on Twitter today, and I kind of had a second where I got really excited. She's internet famous to me! That got me thinking, does anyone else do this? For example, there are a lot of people on here that have been around FOREVER, and I've been seeing their names for years. They seem like sorta famous people to me. I know I told Chritter that when I finally met him in person a while back. I've met all kinds of people from the Internet (that sounds bad) between internet dating and making friends on different forums/Craigslist, but these are people that I would probably feel really shy around for no reason.
So here's my short list of internet celebrities, feel free to list yours! (or tell me I'm crazy and no one else feels this way)
Burt "I'll never call her Rebecca" Reynolds
Mallory Ortberg (from the Toast)
Actually, pretty much all the authors of blogs I follow, Jez, The Toast, etc.
That's all I can think of. This post brought to you by the 6 pack of beer I just finished off. :)
Edit: One more because I'm kinda sober-er now. Allie Brosh from Hyperbole & a Half, and Matt from The Oatmeal.
I did meet one of the Cyanide and Happiness guys in Dallas, and he was super cool.
