Blog Improvement Project, Part 1: Results Episode

Update, 7/27/12: Because I’ve realized that I’m playing with fire by using copyrighted images, I’m removing all copyrighted pictures (or pictures that I’m unsure about) from this blog. Since this profoundly alters this particular post, I’m making note of it here. Sorry about that. #1 and #2 from this contest have had to be removed. They were a picture of Mission Vao, from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and a picture of Buffy and Spike, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The results from my first, audience-participatory, Blog Improvement Project are in!

The votes (as gathered from blog comments and Facebook comments) stand thus:

Picture #1: 4 votes

Picture #2: 3 votes

Picture #3: 2 votes

Picture #4: 5 votes

Picture #5: 7 votes


Only bad bloggers are ugly.

Thanks so much to everyone who voted and made the beginning of my little project such great fun!

If you check out my And This Is Me page, you’ll see that now it features my lovely new portrait. This way people will see exactly what I look like, and will therefore be able to read what I have written without copious amounts of angst.

My Hushing Nun avatar will remain the same, though, in case you were worried. I like it too much to drop it.

Next week we’ll see the next phase of my Blog Improvement Project. “What could it be?” you ask. “How could she possibly improve upon perfection?” Just keep your pants on, as my grandmother would say. Keep your pants on.

There’s no place like blog, there’s no place like blog, there’s no place like blog …

  1. Well, I AM sad that I won’t be able to look up your nose, but this image works pretty well, too. You’re very shiny, and there’s not a pimple in sight. Good choice.

  2. I dig it so and it is quite fittingly, YOU. Can’t wait to hear what else you’ve dreamed up. You’re right, there is no place like blog, you funny lady. :).

    • When I finish the project and my blog is perfect, I will celebrate by taking all my followers on a ride in my pink bubble! BUBBLE RIDES ALL AROUND!

  3. That caption is fucking perfect.

  4. Even Auntie Em would approve! 🙂

    • I totally stole that last line from your comment on my last post! I give you full credit. It made me all kinds of happy.

      • I am happy you happily took it and but it to good use! Not sure I can claim much credit since it is just a derivative inspired by that wonderful picture of yourself! Your action cause my action – and so fully yours to use.

      • Oh I see I did my dyslexic moment of writing “but” instead of “put”, As far as I am aware it is the only word I mix up when writing, I can remember doing that as far back as Grade 3.

  5. I couldn’t vote because in my mind I picture you as Karen from “Will and Grace”. I don’t know why that is, but when I stopped and asked myself how I pictured you, she’s the one who popped into my mind and refused to leave. Sometimes I picture you as Karen in a nuns habit with a martini.

    • Uh … I’m choosing to take that as a compliment. She was, after all, the funniest thing on that show. But I’m a redhead and I don’t have a weird voice. So I’m like Karen, only less likely to pierce your eardrums accidentally. Yay!

      • It’s definitely a compliment. She was my favorite on that show. I love the actress. Possibly I made the connection from your saucy comments. It’s hard to say with me really.

  6. You are a good witch! By the way, our cat, Dinsworth, is a little ticked about the “keep your pants on” requirement, as he has no pants. It’s been quite a problem for him because, as a result of being pantless, he is also pocketless. Which means he has nowhere to put all the money he makes doing commercials and, therefore, accepts his pay in tuna. Anyway, he’s asked me to ask you to please be sensitive to those readers out there who suffer from Pants Deficit Syndrome.

    • I can’t change my grandmother’s homely sayings. I can amend a little, though, and say that, if you have no pants, you may hold your horses. That works, too. Unless you’re a horse who has no pants. They need to just chillax.
