So, it’s time we formally introduced ourselves to the gaping maw that is the Internet. Hi, I’m Brenna (the little one with the big hair), and I’m Andi (the tall one with the short hair).
After months of bloggin’ at ya, we were growing weary of people thinking of us as an aging ex-hipster with a potbelly and thinning hair who lives in Bushwick—seriously, someone legit thought that was who we are. So we decided to tell you a bit about ourselves.
Do you hate hipsters?
No. We do not hate hipsters.
Are you hipsters?
Andi: Meh, I don’t fall too far along that continuum.
Brenna: We maintain that that is not a question anyone would ever answer in the affirmative.
Why did you start this blog?
Because we thought it would be a fun thing to do. We used to write long e-mails to each other about our adventures in Brooklyn, etc.—topics we currently cover in the blog. We thought this shit was funny and decided to make our musings public.
What do you guys do?
Brenna: I work for the Internet.
Andi: I’m an editor at a ladymag.
Wait, you guys are girls?
But you write like dudes.
Are you actually really mean?
Brenna: I punch babies.
Andi: No, we’re not mean.
Then how are you able to write in such a mean manner?
Well, it’s all a character, isn’t it? SHH is a humor blog. It’s meant as entertainment, not as a tool to hurt or berate anyone. We don’t base posts on specific people (although we have some friends who quite like being mentioned), and often draw from our own experiences.
Do you agree with everything in your blog?
Brenna: I like MGMT. “The Handshake” is my jam.
Andi: Sometimes I am scarily enthusiastic. And I like my apartments clean.
Are you looking into the camera and smiling?
