Maggie Mason’s blog Mighty Girl was the inspiration for my own. She’s also the founder of Mighty Goods, a contributing writer for The Morning News, and an all-around swell gal. (I know the latter for a fact, because I had the good fortune to meet her last year — nyeah nyeah). Her first book was just published, and you should buy four copies. — MB
Hi, I’m Maggie, and No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog is my very first book. Around the time it was published, I found out I was pregnant. The baby is scheduled to arrive any minute now, which means that I’m in an advanced stage of exhausted stupidity.
I tried to think of something witty to say about the book, something that would make Matt feel justified in sharing his terrifyingly intense high school photos with the Internet. Here’s what I came up with:
Buy book. Book good.
So, as you can see, my signature wit is still intact.
In the absence of astute literary commentary, I figured the least I can do is stand beside Matt in his shame. Baldwin, you owe me a beer:
Yeah. Make that two beers.
