My post on Wednesday about divorce in the Internet era detailed many of the ways that social media sucks when you’re going through a hard time, but the outpouring that came my way in the last few days has been a really wonderful reminder of how great it can be too. Thank you so much to everyone who reached out via comments and/or e-mail, your kindness means so much to me. I’m sorry if I haven’t responded to you yet – I shall!
Next week I’ll be shifting gears into happier territory as it’s launch week for Jacob Wonderbar for President of the Universe! Also known as the 2012 election that won’t stress you out (unless you should somehow have a deep-seated fear of space monkeys).
Back to digest form for this roundup as I have seven million e-mails to answer, but stay tuned for next week! Prizes, for reals writing posts… good stuff coming! Stay tuned.
First up: My dear friend The Rejectionist has a name! And a face! And (drumroll) a book deal!!! So so excited.
In lieu of Comment! of! the! Week! I would like to hereby institute a collective Internet group hug. Seriously, thank you everyone!
And finally, this is pretty amazing. What if Facebook were invented in the ’90s? (via CNET)
Have a great weekend!
