Granny is My Wingman Blog going to TV! Could Your Blog be a TV Show?

Veering slightly from my usual beaten path (movies based on books) to ask a big question - could your blog become a movie? (tv shows based on blogs)
Today, Deadline Hollywood broke the news that yet another blog has been tapped as the basis for a series.
Here's the article in full. Read it and weep and let me know, could your blog be a tv show or movie?

Bruckheimer Produced Comedy Based On Granny Is My Wingman Blog Set At CBS

EXCLUSIVE: Another popular blog by a twenty-something woman is heading to primetime television, this one with the endorsement of one of TV’s biggest producers. CBS has put in development Granny Is My Wingman, a multi-camera comedy based on Kayli Stollak’s blog, which is executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Co-written by Stollak and Donald Todd (Samantha Who?), Granny Is My Wingman chronicles the dating lives of a twenty-something woman and her grandmother. Todd, Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman will executive produce, with KristieAnne Reed co-executive producing and Stollak serving as supervising producer. Warner Bros. TV and studio-based Jerry Bruckheimer TV produce.
Twenty-five-year-old New Yorker Stollak started her blog in July 2011 to document her experience with online dating and asked her 76-year-old grandmother, Gail, of Florida, to join her in the experiment. The two started providing humorous accounts of their dating adventures, and the blog quickly took off, generating a lot of online traffic and giving its two writers celebrity status ). This is the third comedy project based on a blog by a twenty-something female creator to sell to a broadcast network in the past three days, following 20-Nothings at CBS, based on Lauren Bachelis’ Hollywood Assistants Tumblr blog, and F*ck I’m In My Twenties at NBC, based on the Tumblr blog of Emma Koenig.
