at Herding is my favorite faux blog – for now. I know. I’m late to the party.
The pullquote is just one example of the vacuous fluff they parody each day. Although, I fear, that may have been pulled verbatim from some PR blog somewhere.
And, after all, Kat and Jeremy have done such wonderful photo shoots, ya’ just can’t help but revel in their Jack and Jill of all trades mentality.
Finding this image on the site was particularly funny, especially given this recent post. I wonder how many “finds” like this are being reported back to the authors.
Most faux / character blog attempts have been painfully unreal, or simply boring to read. Kat Herding, however, is frighteningly real.
My favorite thus far? Read I just thought this was so pretty. And don’t miss I’m in the book – look me up. Favorites? Why? Perhaps that is because I have nightmares of just such painfully serious posts coming from a student. Yet another reason I now encourage my students to begin blogging with their first name (or my favorite, Biff), only.
Also, congratulations for having the true character to identify yourselves after the joke made its point. It never works to try and continue the charade. It never lasts and, instead of playing a joke, you become the joke.
