OfficeTally in the news

Our local paper, the Mercury News, posted a nice article (with photos even!) about my obsession with this thing called OfficeTally.

There are a few people I’d like to thank: Merc reporter Mark de la ViƱa for listening to me prattle on about the show for hours, Angela Kinsey and Kent Zbornak, for taking the time to provide some amazing quotes, and last but not least, the hardworking and dedicated folks at for bringing this story to Mark in the first place!

P.S. A shout-out, too, to Michael Schur, who also provided quotes for the story that were unfortunately not included. My favorite — when asked “What sort of contact have you had with Jennie?”, Michael replied, “I did a lengthy Q and A with Jennie a few months ago, and it was brutal. She raked me across the coals. It was like Mike Wallace going after a tobacco company lawyer.” Giggle.


  1. Jennie – that was a fantastic article! Congratulations! And that’s so cool that you and Angela will be meeting up. Thank you for all you do for us crazy Office fans, too!

  2. What a great article! You do so much for the website and the adoring fans of The Office. Thank you! Many kudos to you Tanster!

  3. Congrats! And thank you for doing what you do – this is often the very first site I check in the morning, and the last one I look at before I turn my computer off in the evening. I know – it’s a problem. All of these accolades and recognition are well-deserved!

    Thanks again!

  4. That is so cool! I check this site compulsively and you do an amazing job with it. You’re going to have so much fun with Angela, I can’t wait to hear all about it!

  5. Wow. If I lived to a thousand, there would never be an article written about me like that. Thanks for enabling us “office” freaks Jennie!

  6. Yay Tanster!

    I’m so glad that you got some well-deserved recognition for all that you do here at OT. I’m so excited for tonight, not only for the premiere, but also for the discussion afterward here on OT! I’m be visiting for sure!

  7. Jennie you are the best. You deserve this article and much more for all your hard work. Thank You!
    We would be lost without you!

  8. How awesome for you… thank you for all you do, LOVE the site! My day wouldn’t be complete without a visit or two here :)M

  9. Congrats Jennie!!! You definitely deserve an article in the Mercury. I’m also from the south bay, so I’m excited to see you in my paper! thanks for everything you do. And well done! =)

  10. Yay Tanster!!! What a sweet gig you’ve got going on! I wish I had thought of it first. ;)

    Congratulations on all your well-deserved recognition and thank you SO VERY MUCH for putting so much time and effort into this website. If OfficeTally did not exist…I don’t think I could make it through the work day.

  11. Just a note to Jennie:

    YOU ROCK! I love this website (visit it more than once a day, much to the chagrin of the piles of work on my desk…) and it has helped me survive The Office hiatuses (sp? is that even a word?).

    Seriously, though…your hard work is amazing and we all love you!
