good morning, cyberspace!
Today, I am a thief.
Quite literally, in fact. Today I have decided that instead of flexing my brain meats to think of something nice and original to post, I’m going to steal a post to post, instead.
Because I can do that. Obviously.
(PLEASE DON’T SUE ME I’M SO SORRY.)
Basically, quite a while back I was introduced to the gloriousness that was the marvelous Cait’s monthly wrap-up posts. And held within those beautiful pages was one of the most hilarious things I think I’ve ever witnessed — reactions to blog search histories.
Now, if you’re not exactly familiar with the concept, here’s the basic rundown.
Step One – people search for weird, slightly random things on the Great and Terrible Cyberspace
Step Two – those weird and slightly random searches lead them to your happy smol blog
Step Three – those weird and slightly random searches are catalogued within the WordPress site, where they are then susceptible to your incessant and divine mocking for all eternity
And because I am
a terrible person/ running out of time to finish the post I was going to post this Tuesday a thief, I have decided to steal this beautiful concept for my own blog.
(but also i have seen other people do this a couple times SO ASDFGHJKL PLEASE PLEASE DON’T HURT ME I’M SMOL)
So without any further ado, let’s dive right into the smudge!

good morning, Cyberspace!
Today, we are going to be talking about bloggers. And not just any old bloggers — alllll of the bloggers.
Or at least all of the bloggers that I can think of straight off the bat.
Because that is a totally thorough and exhaustive interpretation of every single blogger of ever, so if you’re a blogger and do not see yourself anywhere on this list, then technically you don’t even exist and should probably consult your imaginary friends for help.
There are literally a TON more bloggers out there in the universe than what’s on this list, but since I am basically just a smol bean sprout with literally no drive to do anything, I’m just going to take a dramatic stab in the dark with my rusty pitchfork and list off a few of them. Particularly the blogs that you are most likely following right this instant. Because I am a psychic.
And also a wizard.
And as a bonus, I’m willing to bet that YOU happen to fall underneath one (or more…?) of these categories yourself! So if you’re looking for some further enlightenment of who you truly are, then keep reading, my friends. Deeper understanding is only a few clicks away.
(disclaimer: this list is not sarcastic in any way, shape, or form, and should be taken at the highest level of seriousness you — a human — are possibly capable of) Continue reading “Ten Types Of Blog(ger)s That Are Probably Waddling Around In Your Blog Feed Right This Instant”
good morning, Cyberspace!
It is officially the first Tuesday of February! Ack! Where has the time gone? Just yesterday we were starting the new year, and suddenly I’m back on the blogging train, rip-roaring past the I-Didn’t-Schedule-Any-Posts-Like-I-Had-Planned-To station.
Man, I love that station. I fly past it every week on my commute. Continue reading “14 Things That I Absolutely Love!!!. . .besides writing. (wait what?)”
Good afternoon, Cyberspace,
Four years ago, back when I was but a smol bean beginning high school, graduation was just a distant fantasy in the blip of a horizon that was my future. It was a dream. A nightmare. A complex idea that I did not know how to comprehend.
Graduation was, to me, the end of my existence. It was the day when everything ended.
It was the day that I would die. Continue reading “6 Things I Have Learned From Being A Freshly Graduated Asparagus”
Good afternoon, Cyberspace!
You guys will never in a million years guess what has happened to me!
(or, you know, maybe you will because of the giant, completely inconspicuous title of this smudge. who knows.)
This past week, as I was scrolling through my severely cluttered WordPress feed, I saw something that gave my heart a stutter. There, smushed between the gazillion book reviews and writerly posts that I am seriously behind on reading, was…
And no no no, it is not the Sunshine Blogger Award, which I believe I’ve done about
2 3 infinity times by now. It is, in fact, the Versatile Blogger Award. (and I totally didn’t have to look up the word versatile what are you talking about hahahahahaha) Continue reading “The Versatile Blogger Award (in which you discover seven completely random facts about Yours Truly)”
Good evening, Cyberspace!
Today I am here–in my full pixie glory–with a deliciously spontaneous smudge for you all!
Because who am I if I am not both delicious and spontaneous?
my soul is made of cookie crumbles. obviously I am delicious.
Now, it has been a constant thought brewing in the back of my marshmallow mind that there is a remarkably wonderful community of writer-bloggers out there in the world–some of which I have had the amazing opportunity to communicate with through my own smol blog–and it finally occurred to me that there are two things in the bloggerly world that never seem to be addressed: Continue reading “The Five Most Commonly Used Writerly Abbreviations (that make me want to barf my cookies into a plastic bag)”
Good afternoon, Cyberspace!
It is a
n un commonly known truth that I–the Cookie Queen–absolutely and irrevocably despise with a burning passion the most vile form of restraint that is commonly cast upon the writers of this day:
The Word Limit.
Now, don’t get me wrong here. I believe that in some
extremely rare and therefore no cases, word limits can be a good thing.
Sort of. Continue reading “Five Reasons Why I Absolutely Loathe Word Limits (with all of the fiery passions of Mordor)”
Happy Friday, Cyberspace!
Remember last Tuesday when I said that I wasn’t going to just randomly disappear into thin air? Well, guess who just randomly disappeared into thin air this past week?
That’s right. This cookie right here.
But never you fear, my smol crumb, for I have returned to you with a thousand and one excuses as to my absence that I shall not be naming because A) they’re extremely lame and not at all worthy of my absence, and B) I only have like three excuses.
HOWEVER! I have not been completely MIA, as I actually wrote a guest post over on the wonderful Alex’s blog, Lord Of The Trekkies, which was posted yesterday! So technically I still posted something this week? Just…not on my own blog.

Good morning, Cyberspace!
It has come to my attention that sometime during the past week, I have miraculously accumulated 100 followers.
And this is both extremely terrifying and slightly cool.
Extremely terrifying because there are 100 insane weirdos who thought, “Hey! This blog is pretty cool! I shall hit the follow button and STALK THEM FOR ETERNITY.”
Slightly cool because there are 100 insane weirdos who thought, “Hey!” This blog is pretty cool! I shall hit the follow button and STALK THEM FOR ETERNITY.”
And I cannot thank you enough for hitting that follow button.
All 101 of you. (OOH! I shall call you the Dalmatians!!! [if anyone else hits that follow button and ruins this beautiful thing that has spontaneously occurred, I shall come after you with a pitchfork and a slab of concrete.])
And so, in honor of all you fluffy Dalmatians, I have decided to do something a little bit different today–as is the custom of this delightful blog. Instead of the normal rant-tastic post, I’m gonna do a little bit of a trivia thingy, in which I sporadically divulge information about myself that you probably never would have guessed just by reading my blog posts and feeding me your leftover cookies.

Good afternoon, Cyberspace!
I apologize once AGAIN for not posting on time this week. I’ve had a lot going on that was–dare I say it–more important than getting this Smudge out on time.
