OfficeTally’s impact on The Office: the Mashable interview

As part of the series Tales of the Early Internet, I was delighted to be interviewed by Mashable about OfficeTally’s impact on the Office.

As I told Mashable’s Nicole Gallucci, it was a perfect storm of events that happened back in 2007–I stumbled upon The Office while channel surfing in Season 2, I became so obsessed with the show that I created my first blog about it, and I started communicating with cast members on MySpace.

I remember that time in my life, and OfficeTally readers, with so much affection.

And apparently, so do some of you!

This email pretty much made my week.

Anyway, give the article a read and let me know what you think! And thank you for being part of a very special perfect storm. 🥰
