An editor of a political publication that tracks the “virality” of political social media noticed that relative to the size of Girl Du Jour on facebook, my memes can get quite a lot of traction. He asked me if I would be willing to be interviewed and tell him “my recipe.” It got me to thinking, and I started taking a look through my work.
I started my own facebook page in August 2013, when I was still Veruca at The Everlasting GOP Stoppers. Even though james and I built that together, he never treated me as an equal, which left me quite frustrated and disheartened at times.
To entertain myself, and distract myself doing something that I love, Girl Du Jour turned into a wonderful creative outlet for me. And I find that I make myself laugh pretty frequently. Hopefully I bring laughter into your life too.
Here are some of the highlights from 2013 , complete with clickable links in the introductory text of each.
