A Message From the Tagline Fairy.

Like the Tooth Fairy, but, instead, I’m creeping into your house whilst you sleep and stealing your taglines.

Half the time I click “Follow” just from reading the name of your blog or your tagline. (Says the girl with a blog named “Erin Lyon.” It’s genius! Copyright that shit!) But hopefully my tagline is mildly amusing (which is the phrase that may end up carved into my tombstone). Anyway – here’s my nickel’s worth of free advice: hook them with your name or your tagline. And, if at all possible, be as clever as these people.

The Yam: Eerily similar. Legally distinct.

They are a self-proclaimed rip-off of The Onion. As a lawyer, that made me laugh out loud. And then die a little inside when I gave it a moment of serious legal analysis.

Karen Carpenter Died For Your Sins: I guess I can always go through life sideways.

It was the name of the blog itself that got me on this one. Honestly. Who can find a blog called “Karen Carpenter Died For Your Sins” and not follow? Not this girl.

CupCaketheGreat: Non stick my ass.

Non stick my ass? I didn’t care what she had to say beyond that…I was in.

The Bloggess: Like Mother Teresa, Only Better.

And so began my love affair with Jenny Lawson.

Single Mama’s Guide to CTFD: Lessons in Learning to Let Go.

Hm, not sure you love it? CTFD stands for “calm the fuck down.” How ’bout now? That’s what I thought. Cause once I figured out her mystery acronym stood for calm the fuck down, I nearly sprained my finger hitting the ‘follow’ button. You know my sneaky infatuation with profanity.

Truth Shall Set You Free So Don’t Be a Crybaby: A dash of wit, A sprinkle of snark, A pinch of sarcastic humor all baked in at 450 degrees!

Sarcasm and cooking instructions?

Full-Frontal Nerdity: Adventures in Love and Storytelling.

Full-frontal nerdity. Digest that a moment. Cause it’s awesome. As is her profile pic which lives up to the name.

There are so many more, but I don’t remember all the blogs now that won a hard-earned chuckle from me (“hard-earned” my ass – I laugh at everything). Now, go forth and be funny, my friends.

      You have chosen wisely. 😉

      • June 4, 2014 at 4:54 pm

        You are to blame for my curiosity…

      • June 4, 2014 at 4:56 pm

        Hm. Maybe that should go on my tombstone. I like it.

      • June 4, 2014 at 4:57 pm

        Don’t forget to put my copyright on it. 😛

    Fuqing brilliant (I’m creating a simplified curse word here, fuck the “ck”, I’m using Q’s now)

      Welcome to the kiddie-table of profanity, Jonas.

      • June 4, 2014 at 4:57 pm

        Jeez, what colorful words get me bumped up to the adult table?

      • June 4, 2014 at 4:59 pm

        Come on…saying fuq is no different than using ‘effing’…It’s okay – not everyone is cut out for the top shelf 😉

      • June 4, 2014 at 5:03 pm

        Fuck you…there ya go

      • June 4, 2014 at 5:03 pm

        Just kidding, love ya!

      • June 4, 2014 at 5:05 pm

        hahahahahaha. Delightful. 🙂

  3. June 4, 2014 at 10:07 pm

    Thanks for finding me new friends!

  4. June 7, 2014 at 6:21 pm

    Seriously. I literally followed you back based off yours and then read this post and thought okay so we’re actually the same person.

    • June 7, 2014 at 6:35 pm

      That’s hilarious because I was reading through your posts last night thinking… The similarity was a little creepy. 😉

  5. June 7, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    This is how I choose to follow blogs as well. I get giddy when I find a good one (and then I wish I had come up with something half as witty)!

    P.S. you better copyright your tagline quick before someone else jumps on it! 😉

    • June 8, 2014 at 2:37 pm

      That’s funny… I will literally scratch my head thinking how did they ever come up with such funny crap? Beyond my funny limits. 😉

  6. June 9, 2014 at 1:02 pm

    I was thinking about changing my tagline to “it’s so bad you can’t look away” but I’m not sure if I should.

    • June 9, 2014 at 3:37 pm

      But then your blog title would have to stand alone. But they are both delightful. (Even though my grammar-Nazi really wants to add a “the” to your current tagline.)

      • June 9, 2014 at 7:51 pm

        I never noticed the missing the, I will add it immediately.

      • June 10, 2014 at 12:15 am

        You don’t have to change it on my account. I figured it was a style choice 🙂

  7. June 13, 2014 at 8:54 pm

    Wow I didn’t even get notified that I received some cool thumbs up from your fabulous post, I am so giddy and grateful you found my random humor worthy of a plug. Thanks so much! 🙂

    • June 13, 2014 at 9:25 pm

      Thanks for being funny all the damn time 🙂

  8. June 13, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    The links don’t work when you click on them LOL but I’m still giddy and grateful 🙂

    • June 13, 2014 at 9:24 pm

      WTF? Damn. I’d picked a specific post of yours so that you would get the “ping back” notification, but now it’s showing the link is gone 😦 I re-linked it to a new post. Clearly some dark magic at work.

      • June 13, 2014 at 9:33 pm

        Haha damn blog voodoo crap! Thanks so much for the reference, I love being able to entertain with my snarky wit 🙂

    These are great. Am going to have fun checking these out!

    • June 13, 2014 at 11:20 pm

      They are all definitely worth the follow! 🙂

  10. June 13, 2014 at 11:42 pm

    You mean you stole it? I had been so impressed with you. Now . . . I just don’t know what to think.

    • June 13, 2014 at 11:56 pm

      Lol. The list above – all stolen (but properly credited). The “connoisseur of poor decision-making?” All me. I need to copyright that shit 😉
