Internet Famous

My friend Sasha pulled this out of last week’s issue of The New Yorker. Apparently it reminded her of me.

do i need to remind you that i have a huge internet following

I think many of us can identify. I check my blog stats compulsively. My heart swells when someone new starts following me on Twitter. I almost jump for joy when someone posts a comment on my blog. I’m far from Internet Famous, but I think many of us mistake the popularity of our blog posts, or tweets, or general written musings, with real-world popularity. We’re still just dorks sitting at the computer, no matter how you slice it.

Do the geekiest thing of all and go buy your own framed prints and t-shirts with the cartoon on it. And remember what Napoleon said: “Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.”

    I think I’ll order one of those shirts for you. It’ll give you better standing ;)

    We all want to be famous, and believe we are the greatest thing to have blessed the internet. It happens.
