Oh hey look, it’s Brandon Stanton signing our copies of Humans of New York. NO BIG DEAL.
i am so in awe of HONY photo-taking-skills that i didn’t even TRY to take a better photo. i am just a mortal with a camera phone.
You know who doesn’t have Humans of New York? Amazon.
You know who does? Word Brooklyn.
The first day I started Fairy Tales for Twenty-Somethings, sometime in late July 2012, thirty people liked or shared it almost immediately. I was ecstatic. Thirty! I was making myself a sandwich in the kitchen and ran into my bedroom halfway through to reload the page and see if the number had gone up. I remember thinking, This could be something. This is somewhat embarrassing, but those people had found the Tumblr because I’d tagged the very first post with “feminism.”
Aw, Tim is the best!
