Facebook to Blog to New York Times
So, I’m the lead in an article in tomorrow’s New York Times Styles section.
Lest that sound fancy and important and, well, real, let me tell you the rest of the story. It’s about this post.
On the list of things I ever thought I’d get in the Times for – and before I go any further, let me tell you, that list is ZERO ITEMS LONG, but if there were a list – item number LAST would be “goofy memes from Facebook”.
Three thoughts from my brother sum this up better than I could:
Matt: I was going to make fun of you for following the herd, but Christ, you’re in the Times.
Matt: Seriously, no matter how goofy the article is, how many people can claim to have their name being the opening two words to an article in the world’s most famous newspaper?
Matt: Not only are you in all the news that’s fit to print, but you are also ordering everyone who reads it to go to therapy. Very accurate.
