“I tend to follow if I see another media outlet, I follow them. I follow all the Newsweek staffers who have Tumblrs, which is like 7 or 8 people. I follow the Tumblr staff. Some of are probably the same things that everyone follows. I like The Daily What. I follow Young Manhattanite because they puzzle me. That’s the one that I think is just so funny, because with all the other Tumblrs you have an idea of who’s behind it. But this is all these different voices speaking through this one thing and you’re like, “Wait who’s talking now?” I almost follow it just cause it’s so confusing. I think they’re good. Inothernews and Soup Soup are better news people than I am. They’re really on top of a lot of stuff. I’m sure I steal from them all the time, but the nice thing about it is because I’m re-blogging them, you know, you’re giving them credit. There are some photo blogs that I follow just because they’re pretty and things like that. Are you guys going to get a Tumblr?”

You see that InOtherNews?!! :-)
My inner-Will Ferrell is screaming I KNOW HIM! I KNOOOOOW HIM!
I think this means I have to SUBSCRIBE to Newsweek now. :-)
