VSB Meets Luvvie (And We’re All Judging You If You Don’t Buy I’m Judging You)

VSB

 

One of the best things about having a space like VSB for eight (!!!) years is that it allows for growth, progression, and evolution to be tracked, archived, and curated. We’ve seen relationships form at the molecular level, and we’ve watched them grow. (And, in some cases, end.) We’ve seen VSB-related marriages and babies. We’ve seen friends who were still grad students when they first started frequenting VSB become PhDs (and even better friends).

And, in Luvvie’s case, we’ve seen someone grow from popular blogger and early VSB commentator — a VSB commentator who, waaaaaay back in the day, used to battle others to leave the first comment on our new posts — to a New York Times best-selling author! So when she reached out a few months ago to ask me to join her for the DC stop on her I’m Judging You national tour, of course I had to oblige.

unnamed

As I sat on stage with her during our conversation — which over 600 people attended — asking her to share some details about her journey and the book publishing process, I couldn’t help but think about how proud of her I was. I was motherfucking verklempt. The success she’s experiencing now couldn’t be happening to a better and more deserving (and more ready/prepared for it) person.

Anyway, right now Luvvie is 5th on the New York Times best-seller list. Let’s see what we can do to help her get to #1.

We're judging you!

We’re judging you!

    Awesome sauce! I am an avid fan and didn’t know she started here.

    Even I feel like a proud play-play cousin.

  • A.G.

    Damon, Luvvie’s event last night so much fun! It was cool to see us support an awesome black woman. I felt the love in the room.

    P.S. It was awesome meeting you! Thanks for making me laugh, and enjoy DC!
