I’ve been hearing way too much lately about the blog-turned-book, 1000 Awesome Things (the book is called The Book of Awesome). I think it’s cool that a blogger is getting so much attention, and a nice book deal, but the subject matter is way too touchy-feely daily-affirmation style for me.
I prefer an earlier blog-turned-book, Stuff White People Like. Unlike The Book of Awesome and its heartwarming, positive outlook, Stuff White People Like is ironic. And hilarious. I think it’s so funny to me because I self-identify with the writing. As much as I like to think I’m an individual, and not a stereotypical white, liberal, urban hipster, I still am. So almost every entry in the blog/book resonates with me. Because like it or not, it’s who I am.
Oh yeah, and the title of this blog is a bit of a nod to Stuff White People Like. If you hadn’t guessed that already.
