Meet the bloggers: Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan.

Ages: 29 and 31 Location: Los Angeles Blog: GoFugYourself.com

Year launched: 2004

Visitors per month: Roughly 4 million

Why you started: "We were just joking around about the idea, feeling punchy on a slow Saturday, and set up the blog as an inside joke we figured would die out. But before it did, people found it."

Purpose of blog: "Celebrities are such fashion plates these days, but half the time their choices confuse us. We take gentle--OK, barbed--swipes at people who have the resources to do better."

Year you quit your day job: "We're not sure we have fully quit them, but we began a hiatus just a month ago."

Biggest advertiser: "Random House, TBS, and MTV have been repeat customers, as has the Web site Pajiba.com."

Strangest posting: "I guess Diana Ross wearing a pile of fuchsia tulle was somewhat unexpected."

Hottest link: "We suspect it's the link to our Britney Spears entries: parodies of her Letters of Truth, written by Jessica, which are incredibly popular among our readers."

Three cons of blogging: "Carpal, tunnel, syndrome."
