Props to Pam

No time to post today, but we have to call your attention to the big wet kiss Wa Po's Style section plants on the deserving cheek of Pam Spaulding, the righteous genius behind Pam's House Blend, which is always one of our first two or three clicks of the day as we wake up to greet the blogosphere. It's a terrific article that recognizes the growing political influence of gay bloggers. Writer Jose Antonio Vargas credits Pam and others with "rebooting the gay rights movement in a decentralized, spontaneous, bottom-up way." The movement needs rebooting, in our humble opinion, so it is encouraging to see HRC president Joe Solmonese quoted in the piece and acknowledging that he reads the Blend. Now, Joe, if you would only heed the good advice Pam and her crack troupe of baristas were doling out on a daily basis!

The Blend averages about 8000 unique visitors a day, which puts Pam just slightly ahead of America's favorite dog blog devoted to politics, pop culture, and basketball, but we're not bitter. We're proud of Pam and celebrate her accomplishment. Besides, as we are fond of saying, there are no small blogs, only small bloggers, and we are definitely not small.

Oh, and while we were curled up with the Style section this morning, we couldn't help but notice this lovely photo of Kate Winslet and Meryl Streep sharing a moment at the Vanity Fair after-Oscars party. We pass it along because you deserve a piece of eye candy to help get you through the day, as do we. Peace out, darlings. Play nice. No fighting over the pretty gold statues your colleagues are getting while you toil silently and unheralded in your cubicle. Do you think Meryl would have such smooth skin if she were bitter? Chin up!
