Erica Reitman knew she was destined to be a writer when her mom discovered a soap opera in her backpack that she had written during recess in 4th grade. It was about two people who fall in love at the post office, and duh: of course they had sex. Dear Famous Asshole was her first foray into blogging, where she attempted to write a letter each day to one famous celebrity asshole (for the record, no one ever wrote her back). This project was followed soon after by her legendary (in her own mind, at least) blog about the craziest neighborhood in Brooklyn, Fucked in Park Slope. This is a place where babies in bars, decapitated raccoons in silverware drawers, and MILFS at the supermarket are common every day occurrences. She's got zero training in interior design, and aside from her claim to fame that she still owns every single issue of Domino magazine ever published, she's otherwise completely unqualified be talking about any sort of design shit…and yet she recently started a snarky interior design blog, Design Blahg. She's written for MTV Buzzworthy, the New York Observer, the NY Press and lots of other places. She has also spoken extensively and taught courses on her approach to “blogging hard.” By day, she is a Marketing Director at Squarespace, because everyone knows you can't really make any money blogging.
