Kurtz: Bloggers To Get Married

It’s almost an endless source to amusement to watch traditional media and the establishment respond to the bizarre world of blogs. No one is quite sure what to make of them or the pants-less unwashed freaks that write them. Today Hotline launched the “blogometer” to keep readers up to date on what’s happening online, and yesterday a friend forwarded us an invite to a blogging panel put on by the South Jersey Chamber of Commerce (click here for the amusingly clueless invite).

Howard Kurtz is taking the genre one step further by taking us deep inside the personal lives of people he admits he doesn’t understand and that you’ve never heard of. Reporting breaking news, Kurtz’s column today points out the “apparent” matrimonial plans of two random bloggers:

Finally, I don’t know the backstory here, but two bloggers are apparently getting married. Frank J of IMAO writes:

“Having found a girl crazy enough to put up with me, I decided I couldn’t wait any longer. Thus I proposed on Saturday evening (and she said yes!). Probably didn’t notice, but I had butterflies in my stomach all last week leading up to this…

“I feel like I should thank everyone in the blogosphere who helped me along. I started this blog to get my say out there, and never really thought I’d find a wife.”

Frank’s fiance, Sarah of Mountaineer Musings, recounts the proposal. You were expecting maybe that such things would remain private?

Um, thanks for that, Howie. Be sure to keep us posted if there are updates.
