Who is the Bloggess?


I’ve been blogging about my strange little life for almost a decade.  It’s mainly dark humor mixed with brutally honest periods of mental illness.  I’m not sure how it happened but somehow this became a very popular, award-winning blog.  In 2012 my first book (Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir) debuted at #1 on the NYT best-seller list and my second book (Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things) spent 5 months on the NYT top 20 best seller list.. I assure you, no one was more surprised about this than I was.  I assume I’m in a coma and all of you are fever-dreams.  Magnificent fever-dreams.

I tweet a lot.  I’m on Facebook and instagram and pinterest.

You can email me, but I’m terrible at responding.  It’s not you.  It’s me.  Unless you’re emailing to ask me to shill toilet paper for free.  Then it’s you.  I’m at Jenny@thebloggess (dot) com.

Advertising is available but only to the sexy people.  (“Sexy people” = anyone who doesn’t use the word “flustrated”.)  Girl’s gotta have her standards.
