She may still be “getting the lingo down,” but Jessica Biel‘s foray into the blogoshpere was a success!

“I have been ‘Internet challenged’ long enough and am thrilled to join the tech revolution!” she writes as MySpace Celebrity’s featured icon, which posted Sunday.

She adds: “Plus, I only have four friends and am in dire need of more. Just kidding, I have six.” (Actually, she has three, according to her private profile.)

Currently filming Nailed in South Carolina with Jake Gyllenhaal and Tracy Morgan, Biel, 26, admits from her trailer that she’s insecure about communicating so publicly but also feels “cooler being an official blogger.”

Most of all, she enjoys this way of expressing herself because it gives her “a perfect place to share some projects that I’m working on that I’m really excited about.”

Although she doesn’t dish on boyfriend Justin Timberlake, the busy actress – she has four films ready for release – says she’s a huge advocate of animal rights and reveals her dog, Tina, is sitting with her.

“She’s not really into blogging,” Biel says, referring to her dog.

Based on reader reaction, her “prayer for inspiration” worked: Fans proclaim their love and welcome her to MySpace, while wishing her good luck with everything in the comments section.
