I have been blogging for close to four months. How many followers do I have? Four, including my son, my husband, and my friend Julie, whom I begged. How many followers does my daughter's friend Gianna have? 236. I repeat: 236. 236 people who are evidently incapable of finding pictures of nature and parties without guidance. When I expressed my dismay, my daughter, trying to be kind, told me that Gianna only has that many followers because hers is a "hipster blog." My question, "Aren't I a hipster?," was met with tactful silence.
Fine. Being the mature middle-aged woman that I am, I know that hipsters are not born, but made. This is America, land of opportunity, and if Gianna can have a hipster blog, so can I. Observe:
