Submissions back open!

Think you have a cute photo, Punk? [Clint Eastwood voice] If you think it fits our seriously stringent requirements, send it to us. We just might post it! But if we don’t, it’s really for the best [patting your back.]

Handy tips:
• Don’t forget to attach the photo [Almost half of sender-inners forget]
• No, I won’t tell you what the ‘seriously stringent requirements’ are, Punk!
• Don’t bother to send in your baby, no one wants to see him/her as cute as he/she is
• Also consider submitting your photo to CuteTracker for the People to vote on!
Put a "stamp" on it when you "mail" your "letter"! (J.K.)


Thanks, Frank!

A thousand thanks for your glowing review of Cute Overload in today’s Washington Post. What a nice surprise.

Sincerely Yours,

SUPER HUGE PROPS to both Bunny Fiv3r and Mr. Nick O’ Neill (of Authentic Geek) for all their help making the three-column update happen.

What ARE they talking about?

GlossOK.  Hi.  This is Theo.  I seem to have been promoted.  W00T!!

So, here’s a sad truth:  While I am a geek, what I know about building web pages amounts to diddly x squat / bupkis (***ERROR: Division By Zero).  I’m hoping y’all will bear with me while I monkey around with TypePad’s “Compose a New Post” interface, here.  Anyhoo.

With the assistance of Meg and CuteOverload reader Anna Grace, I’ve compiled a rough table of the more common Cute-Isms that have cropped up in the posts & comments round these here parts.  I also threw in some less-common entries because, what the heck, sometimes you just gotta take liberties.  And it was a slow day at the office, and I was having fun.

Again: I’m not a WWWizard.  However, plenty of other folks here are, so the formatting just might improve quite a bit in the coming days.  But for now, without further ado, here they are, the fabulous entries of the shiny new CuteOverload Glossary! Yay!!!  [waves arms around a la Kermit the Frog as the curtain opens]

(I hope you’ve got a little reading time on your hands)

Please note that there should be a permanent link to the Glossary appearing soon in the left-hand margin, under “MORE! MORE! MORE!

Introducing: Caption Me!

At CuteLabs Headquarters, we have an overwhelming amount of fabulous photos. Some that simply scream for captions—captions only YOU can provide.

Introducing "Caption Me!" a sthilly new feature brought to you by the fine folks at Ning and CuteOverload. We’ve added it to our sidebar, and you can add it to the sidebar of your own page too, if you so desire. It’s free!
