It is we, Lit Hub’s social media editor! Actually, I’m going to use the first person singular here. On this, the inaugural day of Lit Hub’s thoroughly modern web log, I wanted to share with you my answers to some of the most frequently demanded questions I get on social media. As ever, the most important thing to remember—and I can’t stress this enough—is DO NOT @ ME.
Q: Are the totes for sale?
A: The totes are not for sale.
Q: If the totes are not for sale, why do you keep posting pictures of them on your Instagram page? For bragging? Specifically to torment me?
A: Content is hard! Joan is photogenic! Tote bags are good for putting cute things like babies and puppies in!
Q: Did you know there was a typo in one of your pieces?
A: Likely not! Thank you for pointing it out respectfully, in deference to the fact that everyone who works in this office is a human being, except the dog, who is more of a consultant!
Q: DID YOU KNOW THERE WAS A TYPO IN ONE OF YOUR PIECES, IDIOTS?
Q: Do you think you’re funny or something?
A: Not anymore!
Q: I noticed that your list of books didn’t include this book that I liked, and now I’m upset. Are you sorry?
A: Yes, but not about that.
Q: The title of one of the articles you posted on Facebook made me angry but I don’t want to click the link. Can I express my displeasure here, on your Facebook page, instead?
A: Absolutely. That is your inalienable right, one that the Winklevoss twins fought and died for.
Q: Rebecca Solnit?! What is this, Lib Hub?
A: Get out of here, Dad!
Q: Do you love us?
A: Honestly, more than a thousand gifs of Maya Rudolph blowing kisses can express.
