Ever wondered if dreams really can come true? Take a look at the guy on the left. Not Jakey - the bloke who is the common theme throughout all the photos. You might find an answer.

That guy is Trent.

Until a short while ago, Trent was a teacher from Detroit who started a blog, much like this one. His passion for all things celebrity led Pink Is The New Blog to eventually become purely a gossip blog, with acidy comments and funny nicknames for celebs.

All well and good.

Until some Hollywood movers and shakers realised just how popular this blog was and how many people actually read it.

Newspaper and magazine shoutouts and then interviews started. Before long, some serious LA execs got involvd and Trent is currently in talks to secure an actual Hollywood deal off the back of the blog. All this was helped a great deal by favourite 'Pink' fodder, Joel from Good Charlotte, coming across it, liking what he read, and becoming firm friends with Trent, doling out treats such as VIP tickets to Good Charlotte gigs and to the concerts of his ladyfriend, Hilary Duff.

All this, however, was fairly small fry compared to what was about to come along.

Trent has since, amongst many other things, met Madonna, got a mention in Nicole Richie's new novel, and been to numerous celebrity Hollywood parties.

But then it happened. The biggest and bestest thing that could ever have happened to Trent.

He met Jake Gyllenhaal.

Yes, invited along to the world premiere of Jake's new film 'Brokeback Mountain', which Trent has been plugging for months new in eager anticipation, he got to meet and chat with his alltime love, apart from his boyfriend, obviously - Jakey-poo himself.

Surely, it cannot get any better for this guy.

Of course, with fame, especially fame of this kind, negativity often follows. Trent has had some comments on the blog saying that since becoming friends with the rich and famous his posts have gone soft, with him going easy on particular celebs. The extra publicity has pointed new readers in his direction, which has resulted in some unfortunate anti-gay comments, forcing Trent to have to moderate his comments. But, for the large part, and myself included, avid readers, followers and fans are happy for, and just a tad jealous of, Detroit's favourite son (Eminem who?).

And all this off the back of a blog.

Maybe, just maybe, one day, off the back of my blog, I could meet my alltime love. What are the chances, really, that Richard Armitage is an avid reader, follower and fan of Welsh Girl In Leeds?

(Please don't answer that - don't dash my dreams before they've had a chance to take flight, I beg you.)

    I will be meeting George Clooney any day now, I can feel it in me waters!

    Although I'd settle for the well formed hairy chest of JG as well.

    I'm not fussy!

    Ah, another witty and insightful comment from the all too common 'Anonymous', is he referring to the Llandudno fishing community with the word carppy?

    I'm sure that if you mention Armitage enough, he'll get to hear of it. I had the 'official' Nelly furtado fan-site visiting mine, one step closer to meeting the little songstress...
