Many of you know...

That among this blog, there are a few other ones that I try to publish and keep up with. One of those is something that I put at I thought that it would be cool to own my so I do.

After a few years I decided to put up some geneology info on it. As of lately, I have had some great people send me lots of research for the Hillenburgs going back to the 1600. Its pretty awesome. However I have also had something else happen.

I keep getting emails from people that think I am Stephen Hillenburg. You know the Creator of Sponge-Bob. I guess Stephen is not so easy to get in touch with and he is somewhat a private person (I really don't know) The truth is I have never watched an episode...and when it comes on TV the voices are so annoying that I immediately turn it over. I know its very popular...but I guess I don't get it.

Anyway...I have recently gotten three emails that I thought I would share with you all for what its worth. Not that its anything earth-shattering...just interesting to me. So its on here...after all this is MY blog :-).

Hello Mr Hillenburg my name is Daniel Castro I come from Venezuela, South America but I am now living in Australia. I'm 12 years old and I am a big fan of Spongebob Squarepants, in the future I would like to be a big artist I love drawing Cartoons, Manga and lots more. I was wondering if you could send me some facial expressions of your cartoons.Thank you bye

Please reply
Daniel Castro

I am embarrassed to say that I mis-read this email early one morning on my iPhone and I thought that it said that this person was 72 years old. Not 12. I promptly replied to him "Wrong Hillenburg" Sorry for being so abrupt Daniel. I should probably not reply to emails before I wake up.

Dear Stephen,My name is Seth Elkins. I think you should make an episode of Spongebob when Spongebob, Patrick, Sandy, Mr.Crabs, and Squidward all go to a hotel.The problem is that the restaurant at the hotel tricks Spongebob into telling the chefs the krabby patty formula. will they make the chefs forget it? I hope you turn this into an episode. from,Seth Elkins you can see my dilemma. What should I do with these emails? Should I start responding as if I was the super secret identity of my famous (relative?) Stephen. Should I set up the email address and see what else comes pouring in. Or should I just ignore these and stay focused on my final end goal of making my alter-ego Hillenblog hollywood famous so I can show the world how super hot my first wife is and kill the "Starter Wife" theory for famous men in Hollywood?

you have to pretend to be have the power to encourage and motivate these young minds who sit around and watch cartoons...perhaps maybe one of them will draw inspiration from you and create a cartoon that will fry millions of other little as stephen can change lives!
