So this is the page where I tell you things about my blog.  I think that this is supposed to convince you to Follow me.  It seems pretty silly of you ask me.  I mean, there are some far more effective ways of getting you to Follow my blog.

If you Follow me, I might happen to give you a purple dinosaur.  It love being petted and giving people rides to school.  I would also like to point out that if you choose not to Follow me, I will tell everyone about that thing you don’t want anyone to know about.  You know what I’m talking about.  Not to mention that you may find that tonight, when you go to sleep, there is a velociraptor waiting by your bed.  He is Westley, my pet velociraptor, and I may have sent him there to punish you.  We all know velociraptors can be pretty vicious.  We’ve all seen Jurassic Park.  Don’t let that be you.

No pressure.

You know have a few extremely credible reasons to Follow me.  Sure, bribery, threats, and blackmail are technically illegal, but at least I’m not using torture or something.  And besides, you are perfectly free not to Follow me.  I’m just implying that I support “massive retaliation” (note the history reference – Cold War policies!).  Plus, you might make me cry.

Let’s get down to business.  And yes, it was extremely difficult to resist putting the Mulan reference there.  This is a blog.  You probably knew that, unless you were randomly clicking with your eyes closed and ended up here.  I’ll just assume that is the case and start at the beginning.

Let’s do this in the form of FAQs because lists bore me, and bullet points bug me (little blobby things on a page – can often be mistaken for bugs when one is extremely tired and may result in extensive freaking out: bad).  FAQs stand for Friendly Alligator Quotes.

This is a Friendly Alligator:

Friendly Alligator Says: So what the heck is this thing?
It’s a blog called Drizzled in Awesomeness.  Specifically, my blog.  I won’t tell you who I am because then you might try to steal my identity (actually, I'd be flattered that my identity is important enough to be stolen).  Raise your hand right now if you plan on stealing my identity.  Now, get the hell out of here.  I'm flattered, but you're mean.  Go away.

Friendly Alligator Says: What does “Drizzled in Awesomeness” mean?
“Drizzled” means “lightly sprinkled” and “awesomeness” is synonymous with “me”.  Basically, I try to talk about awesome things, or random awesome parts of my life.  I encourage others to share awesome things as well.

Friendly Alligator Says: So what kind of stuff do you post and when?
I post whenever the hell I feel like it, so don’t expect a nice little schedule where I post every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday at exactly 4:17 PM EST.  My posts try to be funny.  Sometimes they fail.  Sometimes I fail.  Whatever.

Friendly Alligator Says: What is your favorite punctuation mark?
I think it's technically called a "tilde" but I call it "Squiggler".

Friendly Alligator Says: What your title picture of?
It’s pancakes that are drizzled in awesomeness.  The “awesomeness” is actually chocolate syrup.  I got to eat those pancakes after I took the picture and man, they were awesome.

Friendly Alligator Says: How do I contact you?
You have a question or comment!  I love that.  Please, please, PLEASE tell me, I LOVE feedback.  Leave a comment or send an email to drizzled.in.awesomeness@gmail.com and I’ll try to get back to you.
Example questions/comments:
- How to I defend against velociraptors?
- Your blog is awesome.
- What is the square root of 5,678?
And so on.

Friendly Alligator Says: Do you copyright your stuff?
I think so.  But I’ve decided it’s illegal to steal my pictures.  Just give me credit and stuff.  Link to my blog all you want, I like new readers!

Friendly Alligator Says: Speaking of pictures…?
I draw them myself in MS Digital Image Pro.  They a re not masterpieces.  They are me trying to be funny in an artistic sense.  I enjoy them.  I tried taking Google Images once but decided that was probably illegal.  You know me, I do try to obey the law once in a while.

Friendly Alligator Says: Anything else?
Again, I LOVE FEEDBACK!  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!  If you like it, I’ll be happy.  If you’re not satisfied with something, I’ll try to see what I can do.  Just let me know!
