While some bloggers are happy not to rush into anything right now, I read the most interesting post today from a blogger I recently started reading: Penelope Trunk.
She’s the creator of Brazen Careerist, another site I stumbled upon though some friends. She writes columns and blogs about career advice as well as social media. I really enjoy her advice as well as her say-it-as-it-is style of writing. Her topics knows no limits, which leads to her latest post on the new beau in her life… which happens to be about 18 years her younger.
I’m serious when I say I read her for her advice. She’s given me some sage advice that I hope will help me to become a better blogger. However this particular post I enjoyed because it offered a little slice into her dating life. I can’t lie, I found it a little steamy. I was left a little hot and bothered after reading her tale of how she ended up hooking up with a 25-year old boy. I was so captivated by the story that I read what spilled over from the post on her twitter feed.
There are a lot of blogs I read out there, but I think she is the first blogger I will tag under, “girls I think are hot.” After watching some YouTube interviews of her I think she’s pretty cool.
Her story also made instant headlines with my friend Katie. We often find ourselves joking and talking about cougars and cougar stories (like that time I had those teachers hit on me.) So when I read this post the first thing I had to do was send it her way. When I sent her the post she had this to say, “Why not? When you get pass a certain age, it’s not a factor anymore. It’s the way society thinks that bogs everyone down. Get it while you can LOL.”
So there. I said it. I think Penelope Trunk is hot. And as a fellow 25 year old, I fully applaud the current boy in her life. Onto the bigger question she poses in the post, I honestly feel like the boy is half taking advantage of her position in order to advance his career. I give her credit on being cautious with her roladex.
