One hundred weeks! What do I win? Oh right, continued employment. :)

Week 99 of mental_floss blogs


A short week, as I had my wisdom teeth out on Thursday. The surgeon said I had "hard bones!" Who knew?! Next week: my hundredth week of mental_floss blogs. Wow.

Week 98 of mental_floss blogs


This week was pretty interesting. I think I broke the "Twitter from 1937" story -- I mean, I think mental_floss was the first major blog to link to it. At the time I put my story up, Genny Spencer had 80 followers, now she's pushing 1,000.

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.
