Really happy to see you all here - fresh meat!
Uh oh! Wait, does this mean you're a groupie? Cos groupies are cool. I can live with a groupie.

Do you like cookies? I'm just asking in case I need a suitable 'reward' (or distraction while I flee screaming from the forum).

Glad to be here!

Ooooo. Okay, I love that more. The orange sky one is definitely my favourite. I like the scratchy-type look to it.

I think I want to change the tagline on it - I just need to work out what to change it to. O.o I like the one you've got, but it doesn't entirely fit the blog.

I need my morning coffee. Then maybe my brain will work.

Glad you are here too!

I guess groupie is an appropriate title, and I'm easily bribed (although even more easily with ZCD's...and cake). But believe me, you will never need to run away, and even if you tried, you simply couldn't! Plus, if I am not mistaken, your friends are trapped here too, so why would you abandon them!


Oh, and Geoff:

And Moejoe: you rock!

How about something like:

The world has ended
The rain is acid
The dead are hungry
Plenty for a girl to blog about


Too long?

Hee, I like that, Nomesque! Thanks!

I feel like the first or second line could be cut out. Hmm.

Personally, I think tags should only be two lines or so. How about:


Acid rain. Zombie Apocalypse. Kinda' hungry.
End of the world. Start of the blog.



Although personally I must admit, I found Moejoe's quite catchy...

I like that! Especially the second line. Not sure I want to over-emphasise the zombie aspect, as it took four months of the blog to get to them.

What about:

Acid rain. Hungry dead. Handful of survivors.
End of the world. Start of the blog.

Use the rule of 3, it's punchier.

End of the world. Handful of survivors. Start the blog.

or

End of the world? Only a handful of survivors? What better time to start a blog?

I like the punchy one, on one line or two:

End of the world. Handful of survivors.
Start of the blog.


Ta!
