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.
LMAO… I’ll surely check them out, I mean their blog… 😀
You have chosen wisely. 😉
You are to blame for my curiosity…
Hm. Maybe that should go on my tombstone. I like it.
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.
Jeez, what colorful words get me bumped up to the adult table?
Come on…saying fuq is no different than using ‘effing’…It’s okay – not everyone is cut out for the top shelf 😉
Fuck you…there ya go
Just kidding, love ya!
hahahahahaha. Delightful. 🙂
Thanks for finding me new friends!
You’re very welcome, but now you have to return the favor and share the funny people you find 🙂
Start here: http://pretendtobenice.com/2014/05/14/blogroll-roundup-thanks-and-see-ya-later-bye-bye/ I’m out of school this week and I’ll start another list! 😉 Tag! You’re it!
Perfect. And I’m about to go on vacation for 2 weeks 🙂
Seriously. I literally followed you back based off yours and then read this post and thought okay so we’re actually the same person.
That’s hilarious because I was reading through your posts last night thinking… The similarity was a little creepy. 😉
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! 😉
That’s funny… I will literally scratch my head thinking how did they ever come up with such funny crap? Beyond my funny limits. 😉
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.
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.)
I never noticed the missing the, I will add it immediately.
You don’t have to change it on my account. I figured it was a style choice 🙂
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! 🙂
Thanks for being funny all the damn time 🙂
The links don’t work when you click on them LOL but I’m still giddy and grateful 🙂
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.
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!
They are all definitely worth the follow! 🙂
You mean you stole it? I had been so impressed with you. Now . . . I just don’t know what to think.
Lol. The list above – all stolen (but properly credited). The “connoisseur of poor decision-making?” All me. I need to copyright that shit 😉
Made me read on!
