No sharing of advice and insights in this blog post.

From time to time, every blogger should produce a self-indulgent post, raving about inspiring, awesome people.

This is my turn.  These people would be ideal web copywriters for Dot Com Words, but probably have other things to do.

These wordsmiths are gut-thumpingly terrific and I heart them.


Oh, the joy that is A Moody Christmas. Uncle Terry is a classic.

Zach Braff

He wrote Garden State and then got lotsa cash for his new movie through crowdsourcing because he is cool and hip and has great hair.

Sarah Wilson

She’s so honest and authentic.  I admire her commitment to simple and responsible living. Plus, she’s fun.

Larry David

“You know who wears sunglasses inside? Blind people and assholes.”

Yes, Larry. Yes.

Tina Fey

30 Rock. Need I say more? No, but I will. Her mother’s prayer is terrific.

 Stephen Merchant

The brains behind The Office. His stand up show Hello Ladies was the best comedy show ever. Ever, ever, ever, infinity plus one.

Liane Moriarty

I like her books.

Zoë Foster Blake

I have a rather hefty girl crush on Zoë.   She has umlauts in her name and she is married to Hamish Blake. Oh yeh, and she writes fabulous books and a bonza beauty blog.  And she has great teeth.

Daniel Kitson

Worth subscribing to his email newsletter just for his writing.

My hairdresser, Eboni

She’s tops.
