At just 24 years old Emma Koenig has a viral blog, a book that is to be released next month, and a pending deal for a television series. That is not to say that she isn’t like other recent college grads, she left her East Village apartment to move back in with her parents in NJ, had a line of low paying or no paying jobs, and attended an expensive college, NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
According to The New York Times, Koenig’s Tumblr blog began in 2011, and has the tone of the HBO series “Girls” but “defanged a bit.” Koenig writes her blog in handwritten script and includes graphs and pictures. Her book, which is called “I’m in My Twenties,” the same as her blog, is due out next next month from Chronicle Books, and will be sold at Urban Outfitters stores. Koenig’s blog attracted a lot of attention after it was listed on The Huffington Post‘s “7 Sites You Should be Wasting Your Time on Right Now,” and is currently being drawn up for an MTV pilot.
