Some weeks ago, I posted a link to John Mayer’s blog. You may or may not have bothered to check it out. Now, I don’t know if John is actually writing that blog, posting all those links or if it’s just someone on the JM team, and frankly, I don’t care, because I feel like it’s John and thus, am enamored.
I should say, I’m not much into celebrities. I’m not; I rarely read People or check out TMZ. I especially don’t dig famous people who have little to no talent or accomplishment. However, JM is not among them.
What happened is, I caught five minutes of JM preforming on the Grammys.
From there, I got myself Continuum, his excellent CD, which I’m now addicted to.
Now I’ve got his blog in my Reader, and I check it, often.
Here’s what I love about it. I love seeing what he’s looking at, thinking, finding funny, buying, doing. I had an idea for a website like this a while back. Create some characters people connect with and then have those “people” connect viewers with products they like or use. Just a few key things. It works even better with “characters” already created, like JM, even though I’m not going to be able to buy the Rolex. I noticed the people at NBC are doing with one of their TV shows. It’s effective.
But my favorite thing about JM is that he has a sense of humor, especially about himself. He also seems like he’s having a really good time, making him highly enjoyable to watch, listen to, and read.
Check him out, he’s worth it.
