A Letter to My Bloggy Life Partner

Dear Demanda-

I know we said that our first blog of the new year would be New Years resolutions but who are we kidding? You know we'll post those in June or something. That's the way we do things here. We lag big time. Hence the reason we're only BORDERLINE phenomenal. Procrastination is our way of life. That and borderline alcoholism.

True story.

As you might have noticed, I write you letters often. Well, not really THAT often. I wrote you one previously apologizing for hurting your feelings. And then I wrote a nice little blurb in the form of a post-it on your door (which has remained there for the last 8 months). Now I'm writing you another letter as a plea.

Some people might not know about this nice little website I have been known to obsess over frequent as of late called Tumblr. For those  people, I would warn them do NOT go near it. It's a time suck. But for you, it would be an awesome way to communicate. Really it's not enough that we live together, talk on twitter, facebook, gchat, text, talk on the phone and hang out 24/7. We need tumblr to add another form of awesome communication.

I really think you need to join. I mean at least if not for me, do it for our readers. Not only can they follow us on our blog and on twitter but now they can see awesome pictures we post.

If you're still not convinced, I will list out some more reasons for you to join. You know how I love lists. I got that trait from you back in jr college when you would make random lists for EVERYTHING. I think I still have one somewhere in my storage or closet that we made as a joke. It's probably buried under mass amounts of clothes and shoes. Perhaps after joining tumblr, we should submit an application to Hoarders.

Specifically because this looks like our closets, minus the neatness.

 So here is my list. My final attemp to get you to join tumblr or for you to say "Jaymes, go ahead and make me a tumblr page and I will look at it/update it every once in a while. By the way, you're beautiful!"

1. I know I posted this on tumblr/twitter last night but it was so good that I need to do it again.

Join Tumblr or Kellan will eat this baby! Seriously, do it. You'll save this kids life.

2.  Join tumblr to be a good friend. You stood in my room last night talking to me and shivering. What did i do??

I gave you a hug. And thank you for not biting my neck.
Now you join tumblr to return the favor.

3.  I'm always talking about these hot pictures I saw on tumblr. Now you can see them too!

Kellan says: Come over to tumblr and you can see more, baby!

Rob says: If you join tumblr, You can come lay with me.
Plus, I won't think you girls are creepy for having pics of me all over your carport anymore.

4.  There are some batshit crazy people on tumblr. We love batshit crazies. They make life interesting in ways we can't.

Almost as crazy as Tom Cruise but not quite.

5.  Because who WOULDN'T want to look at pictures of people running through fields with balloons?


6. You love cute animals. So does tumblr.


7.  Networking. How are we going to get paid to blog one day if we don't both have tumblr?!?

If they can get paid to do nothing and be stupid, we can definitely get paid to do nothing and be awesome.

8. You're on tumblr all the time anyway, why not have an account?

No need to hide, Demanda. You can be on Tumblr all you want!

9.  Because you made me join twitter. And by "made" I mean you joined and talked about how cool it was so then I said "it sounds stupid" but you said "shut your mouth, it's not stupid! You're stupid!" and I cried in my cereal even though I don't eat cereal so I finally just decided to join. And now I love it. So you should do the same with Tumblr.

Look how happy they are! We can be that happy.


This says it all.



P.S- I know there's still some Christmas crap up on our page. I'm planning on taking it down sometime around St. Patrick's day.

Fluv that pic of klutz about to bite the baby! And the rest of the pics are just YUM!

All valid reasons to join, especially the Jackson one! Keep the dream alive for your friend!

At the very least you can have a tumblr account to reblog and save pictures you come across that you really like without taking up space on your computer hard drive.

LOL, excellent rationale!

I thought I was firmly in the Not Join camp, but kiTT's comment is making me reconsider.

HA! I love your reasoning. Now, I'm going to your tumblr account and see who I need to follow who isn't batshit crazy.
