Hello Newsweek Tumblr readers!
My name is Sam Schlinkert and starting today I’ll be your Social Media Intern! A little bit about me: I’m a recent Duke grad, a picky eater, and a huge fan of the Internet and all the fun things on it.
Newsweek/The Daily Beast has acquired me from the influential Tumblr blog Blake Lively Doing Things, a photo blog of the blonde Gossip Girl starlet doing different things with very literal captions. I’m happy to say I’ll be bringing those talents to head-up a new segment for the NWK Tumblr called “Politicians Doing Things.” (ed: He’ll be right at home—today we ran a gallery of politicians eating pizza.)
