All right, this is serious business here.
As you might have noticed, I have a little bit of a thing for Alyssa Milano. Just a little bit, because that's all that my wife will allow.
I've mentioned her periodically in posts, and her lovely visage has sat on my sidebar for about two years now.
And that's what I'm afraid I must discuss.
The picture of Alyssa links to her Major League Baseball blog. As you know she's a big baseball fan and Dodger fan. And she used to blog a whole bunch. Some of the topics were kind of interesting. It was nice to read about someone in the entertainment field who was such a big baseball fan, a fan of my team.
But she hasn't blogged in a long time. A long, long time.
The second most recent blog on her site was about Opening Day. LAST YEAR'S Opening Day.
The most recent blog was about Twitter, which is appropriate because she's on the thing more than any other human being alive. I eventually had to unfollow her because she was driving me a bit wacky with not only some of her dippity-doo tweets but just the sheer NUMBER. It says she's made more than 15,000 tweets, which has to be a serious, serious error in underestimating. She puts out 15,000 in a couple of slow weeks.
Alyssa periodically tweets about the Dodgers, but it's not very often and it's only squeezed in between the following:
- I see you!
- I know!
- Wherever you are, I hope you're smiling.
Now, I'm not against people using Twitter for whatever they like, but I'm just not going to follow that. And I don't know if I want to encourage others to follow that.
But that is my option if I want to link to something Alyssa is writing, because she sure ain't writing her blog anymore.
The other option is (*gulp*) remove her picture.
I can't believe I just wrote that.
So I'm turning to you. What should I do?
- Leave her picture on the sidebar with a link to her essentially dead blog.
- Leave her picture on the sidebar with a link to her Twitter feed, where you can read all about her "little warrior princess." (That would be her dog).
- Scrap her picture for something more informative and substantial, but maybe less lovely.
- Leave her picture with no link at all, just so that we can all gaze at the artistry of Alyssa.
- Risk a restraining order (and marriage counseling) and post a series of photos of Alyssa up and down the sidebar.
OK some of the above are serious options and some are not. But really, I need to come to some sort of decision. I don't want stuff on the sidebar to be pointless, and I feel like there's no point to having a picture of her there anymore.
I know. That can't be possible.
What am I saying?
Alyssa, forgive me. Come back to your blog. Come back!
