Welcome, mental_floss readers!

| | Comments (1)

Well, my first work in the print version of mental_floss arrived through the mail slot today, and I'm all up in the Contributors section! This is also the week I started blogging for the web site -- the first of many weeks, hopefully. Soon I shall be doing mental_floss's dishes and perhaps I can go over and water their plants while they're on vacation...as long as I get a byline, I'm there. Anyway, in the meantime you can view my first week's blog posts:

UPDATE - here's the second week's worth of blogging:

As you can see, I'm covering technology, nerd culture, that sort of thing. This month's print magazine contains some of my work in the Scatterbrained section (the HAIR bit), and upcoming issues will feature additional Scatterbrainification, on subjects I mustn't divulge.

Those wishing to drop me a line or hoping to read entertaining, cryptic comments made by my pseudonymous friends may enjoy the newly fabulized Chris Higgins Myspace page. Friendship available by request.

Contacting Chris Higgins

I'm a writer based in Portland, Oregon. I mostly write for Mental Floss magazine (and their website), though I recently had a story on This American Life, and had a cover story last year in The Portland Mercury.

You can follow me on Twitter for occasional jokes, or find me on Facebook for updates on writing and utterly shameless self-promotion.

I'm also a mobile website and smartphone app developer. I work for Cloud Four. In years past, I worked with Night & Day Studios; I helped create Peekaboo Barn, Peekaboo Wild, Big Fat Lies, Life in Short, Cocktail Compass, Nick Jr.'s A-Z With Moose and Zee, Quibble, Savage Love, and a bunch of other apps.
