I just saw that Whitney Matheson, @whitneymatheson , was laid off from her job at USA Today. Critics and bloggers go unsung in general, and in Whitney’s case that’s really a massive shame. For 15 years she has been one of the kindest, most fun, most omnipresent forces in curating all that’s good in pop culture. I’m honored to say she’s been a great supporter of my work (along with the work of thousands of creators whose company I’m flattered to keep) and I really want to thank her for all her efforts.
(Above is the back cover of Mother, Come Home, a book that Whitney has warmly endorsed for a decade. Without people like her, that book never would have done as well as it did or reached as many people as it did. I know and appreciate that every day.)
Thank you, Whitney, for everything you’ve done, from everyone working in the creative fields. We can’t wait to see what you do next. I know it will be amazing.
So sad. One of my favorite blogs for at least 10 years.
