Blogging is all about personal voice, which means you guys need to know who I really am. Well, how about a tour of my brand new closet, installed earlier this week? It’s been months in preparation, and it has room not only for my vast wardrobe, but also for my vast collection of felines. Let’s take a look around:

That’s it! Were you expecting more? Come on: I’m not Oprah, you know. Actually, I’m a bit like Steve Jobs, but slightly more colorful. I have two or three pairs of pants to choose from plus a whole galaxy of colorful but otherwise identical polo shirts. They get replaced periodically, and right now I’m in the process of slowly replacing all the old shirts without pockets for new shirts with pockets. The pockets give me a place to put my glasses when I’m out taking pictures.

So now you know the truth: unlike a true blogger, I don’t blog in my pajamas. I blog in stretchy pants and stretchy polo shirts. Exciting, isn’t it?

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
