So glad you could join us. Let me tell you a little about what you’re getting yourself into here. Here’s a little Q and A:
What do you think you’re doing?
At Cute Overload, we scour the Web for only the finest in cute imagery. Imagery that is worth your Internet browsing time. We offer an overwhelming amount of cuteness to fill your daily visual allowance. Drink it in, People!
Um, OK—I don’t really have any more ques—
Curious reporters are always asking us how we got started. It’s simple. One day, after slaving over a hot blog of kittens, BoingBoing discovered us and catapulted us onto idle secretary monitors everywhere, where beellions of them squealed at the same time (The Squeal Heard ‘Round the World)
So, what’s the deal?
Thanks to alert reader submissions, we happily drink lots of wine and/or whiskey late at night and peruse thousands of photo submissions a day. We take .02% of those submissions and turn them into daily “happy pills” or “blog posts”. We “add value” with redonkulous captions filled with a weird language. Most importantly we have an impossible-to-quench desire to document the Rules of Cuteness, or reasons why something appears adorable. Why! WHY!?!
