So. Uhm...wow? The explosion of the article that has brought you all here by the hundreds of thousands has left me intimidated to try and write anything worthy of the "Publish" button. Luckily Liora had her wits about her and said "Well, then why don't you just write about that?"
So here I am. Scared to type another word, but I'm gonna do it anyways.
1.) Thank you. Thank you for your comments. Thank you for your replies. Thank you for your emails. Thank you for your compliments. Thank you for your overwhelming and powerful support. I've read every single thing sent to me, and I plan on replying to each and every one as well. I only have two hands, but I've recruited a few more... so be patient. I promise you'll hear from me before the world ends. But cross your fingers that last part never happens.
2.) I'm excited about opportunities, guys! A New Zealand Podcast? xoJane articles? Magazine interviews? A naughty radio show in Las Vegas? Absofuckinglutely! Let the good word spread!
3.) Did you know that cats follow the perfect birth order? I have three and they fit it to a tee: the cantankerous older sister who is too cool to engage in any of the boys' hooliganisms (not a real word), the teenage boy who knocks over only the important housewares and causes more of a ruckus than the other two combined, and the fluffy easygoing baby brother who isn't the brightest crayon in the box but he don't care because he's goddamn cute and everyone knows it. They are the best company, and this is totally irrelevant.
4.) If you have questions, ask. I'm here for you pretty much all the time. I'll field whatever you throw, so try me.
5.) I hope you stick around. If there is anything I've internalized over the last couple of years it's the power of groups. Teams. Posses. Friend gangs. Whatever you want to call 'em, there is power in numbers. Share your comments, thoughts, confessions, suggestions, rants, raves, and general awesomeness with me. Lets collectively change the world as we know it. And also, I'm going to be really brave and tackle some really difficult subjects soon, so there's that.
Stick with me kid, you'll be glad you did.
