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.
