First!

What's this? Have I really just started another blog? Am I INSANE?

Well, yes.

This blog is an experiment. A prototype, if you will. A blog...[dramatic voice] of tomorrow. Or today. Or Tuesday. Take your pick.

Look, I started Cake Wrecks to have fun. I like writing, and trying to be funny. The challenge of making ugly cakes funny/funnier was always the emphasis for me. Fortunately, cake is still something I'm crazy passionate about, and CW isn't going anywhere (I begin work on the second book soon), but the price of popularity has been a very narrowly defined box of what I can and cannot write about. (That thing being cake. Keep up, now.) It also means some readers are just there for the pics, and find my incessant yammering on annoying. But, durn it, I WANT to be annoying!

Wait, let me rephrase that.

I want to write about more than just cake. Yeah, that's what I meant. And have fun doing it. So this is where I plan to do that.

In fact, this is where I'll post all the fun/funny/fascinating stuff I can't find a way to make cake-related. If you're a fan of CW or follow me on Twitter, then you can probably guess what to expect. (Is there a way to combine Star Trek, Steampunk, the Muppets, Darth Vader, Ghostbusters, and the Princess Bride? If so, I WILL FIND IT.) Then again, some of the things I love may surprise you - I hope in a good way. After all, I've been immersed in the online world nearly 24/7 for two years now, so I have a lot of goodies to share.

For example, I'd really like to have this necklace:


Anyone want to buy it for me?
(What? I thought we could use a visual here. And it's a robot, so it's related. Kind of. And it's adorable. And it's my birthday. So...[bambi eyes]...?



In addition to the occasional geeky wish-list item, you'll also hear more about John, the day-to-day joys and terrors of running a blog like Cake Wrecks, the blogs *I* read and love, the things I'm obsessed with, the things I'm making, etc, etc. Have a question or request? Ask! I want to interact more with you "inner circle" readers here: the ones who don't find my incessant yammering annoying. The ones responsible for all the good things that have sprung from CW. The ones who make me laugh and cry with your sweet/funny comments and e-mails. You know, the cool ones.

So, now that you have absolutely no idea what I'm going to be posting about, let's get on with it! [virtually cutting virtual ribbon on virtual blog door] Epbot is now open!!!

Er, hope you like it.

- Jen

PS - Say 'hi' in the comments!

  4. Hello! Fun new blog. I've added you to my Google Reader (the greatest invention in the world... said in my mind in a deep, rumbling voice. And with hand motions.) YAY.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hi! I love your yammering. And that robot necklace. Can't wait to keep reading over here. You've been making me get funny looks from coworkers for laughing out loud for months. Now, I just have another excuse. :)
    Also: happy birthday!

  9. Hi!
    As for requests, we need more Dr. Who in the blog. Like a debate about which doctor is the best. I'll start: Christopher Eccleston, FTW.

  10. Hi!
    You have no idea how happy this blog is making me. All of my favorite things put together.

  13. Consider yourself added to my Google Reader. I know - how's THAT for a birthday present, eh?

    You're welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I've never commented on CW before, though I check it every day at precisely 9:31... and keep clicking refresh until I see the new post. But, as no one's commented yet, I wanted to attempt to be the first one to say "Hay-lo!" on your new blog! I can't wait to read what (else) you have to say! :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi! I happen to enjoy your blatherings, so blather on!

  18. Hi there! :D Definitely following your new blog, oh yes. I always get a kick out of reading your cake commentary.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi! Google Reader'd here as well. Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've always thought your "incessant yammering" adds much more humor to the cakes than they could supply on their own!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Happy Biiirthday and yay for another blog to read! :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi!!!!! Happy Birthday!!!!

    Grats on the new blog, and I'm super excited to be able to catch your witty diatribes in a new environment. CW always makes my day, and I'm totally psyched to see the lovin's spread around the web a little bit.

    Luck-luck-luck!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think this is excellent; your commentary on Cake Wrecks (while I've not actually commented before) is absolutely the thing that sells it and I'd love to read more of what you have to write about. So, Happy Birthday! And I look forward to following your newest blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Jen, I love the commentary on CakeWrecks as much as the pictures, and I look forward to reading more about your interests beyond cake! Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yay, congrats on the new blog!

    (BTW, wee typo on the subtitle of Cake Wrecks at the bottom of the page. Although...it IS Cake Wrecks, so maybe the typo is on purpose? To seek out the intrepid readers who are observant enough to notice it? If so, then BOOYAH to me!)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hi! Love the look of epbot and looking forward to hearing your take on all things not cake.

    ReplyDelete
  27. "Is there a way to combine Star Trek, Steampunk, the Muppets, Darth Vader, Ghostbusters, and the Princess Bride?"

    Dude...I would so totally buy that movie and even read the book!

    And Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  28. YAY! I'm so excited to read more of your yabbering! It always takes the cake for me! ... ... ::Tap Tap:: Is this thing on?

    ReplyDelete
  32. HOORAY!!!! While I've never *actually* wished you would blog about something other than cake, I've suddenly discovered there's nothing I ever wanted more in the world! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi!
    Another comment: can you please write a post about how the person who writes "First comment!!" is usually beat out by someone else and how funny that is. (well at least to me.)
    Also, you have been added to my Google Reader - the only way I can read blogs.
    -Kate
    p.s. I'm a college professor and have come dangerously close to laughing out loud while reading your CW blog while my students were taking an exam. so thanks for almost getting me fired!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi, Jen! I will follow you anywhere!

  46. I so rather enjoy how you decided to name your blog Experimental Prototype Blog of Tomorrow =D You truly are a Disney geek through and through =P And I'm right there with you!
    Oh and a very merry (un)BIRTHDAY to YOU!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Happy Birthday!! Seriously, if you substitute Star Trek for Star Wars (sorry....) I would think you were me.. you are not me, are you? I would really love it if you talked about all those things combined, together.. let's say about a certain steam operated robotic version of Wesley who lives in a galaxy far far away who always gets heckled by Statler and Waldorf the Hutt... or something alone those lines :D Very happy to be reading your new blog now..

    ReplyDelete
  48. Congratulations! I'm looking forward to your new blog. But I have a weird eye for this sort of thing, but..."hilariously" is spelled incorrectly at the bottom of the page.

    Blog on!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Good Morning and Happy Birthday!

    That was my awesome web designers fault when we were finishing this site at 3:15 this morning.

    Good catch though.

  67. Hi! Happy Birthday! I'm a CW junkie, so I'm looking forward to seeing your yammerings on here as well!

    ReplyDelete
  68. 'Ello, there. I've never found your comments on the various cakes over at CW to be annoying (who in the world would?), just so y'know. And that robot necklace is totally adorable.

    Anyway, I hope that today turns out to be a good day for you. Epi "barthy." - you deserve it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. YAY!!! I love that you love to write and that you enjoy the CW. Me and the kids (when it is appropriate) LOVE it.
    I love to write but you by far win. YAY for CW writer writing more funny things.

  72. Was there a cake (virtual or, better yet, real) to go with your ribbon-cutting? Because it's not a celebration without cake. Congrats.

    ReplyDelete
  73. That's not really EPBOT, it's the Existential Wonders of the World RIDE at EPBOT.

    ReplyDelete
  74. HAPPY NEW BLOG AND (older)BIRTHDAY!!!
    Whoooppeee! This IS going to be fun. Especially since now I have yet one more reason to be fooling around on the computer rather than doing menial, boring things like cleaning, and checking Help Wanted ads...crap like that.
    I'm not so up-to-speed on the pop-culture stuff, what with my being from a Different Generation and all, but I don't care! ("We" had obsessions and funny stuff, too!)
    I love your sense of humor, your writing style, and (pounding on door) I'm coming in whether you like it or not (heehee)!

    Oh, and give Trista up there your address!
    =^~.~^=

    ReplyDelete
  75. YAY! I'm excited to see some non-cake related yammering!
    I totally love that necklace, I NEEEEED one!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Happy Birthday!

    Plus, it's kind of scary how much we both enjoy the same things. Yeah. The only other online personality that I have so many interests in common with is Greg Dean of Real Life: The Online Comic.

    I guess what I'm saying is that I feel like I'm keeping good company, and I'm looking forward to enjoying your new blog as much as Cake Wrecks.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hiya! Very cute necklace, and I love your sense of humor. :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yahhh for a new blog that isn't all cake! I've always thought I find you so entertaining because we love the same stuff! Can't wait to hear more of what goes on in that head of yours!

  91. Hi! *waves maniacally*

    I just realized I don't know how to spell maniacally ... maniacly? Not a word I type often.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hi! The yammering is great, it's what makes CW so funny. I have a feeling I will be addicted to this blog too now...

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hi Jen! How fantastic! Good for you! Wait... is there enough sarcasim and wit to go around? There better be! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Hi Jen! So excited to see another blog from you. I like the cake pictures, but I really think the writing is what makes it, so I can only imagine what your take on the rest of the world (I know, there's something besides cake?!) will be. Have a fantastic birthday! - Anne

    ReplyDelete
  99. Happy Birthday. I never leave a comment but i am one of the silent ones who loves cake wrecks and loves to hear you yammer.
    Good luck with this new project. I will be sitting here in the background reading on a regular basis.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Just gotta say... LOVING this idea. Cake pictures are nice, but I read mostly because you are awesome. And now I get more awesome-ness! Score!

    ReplyDelete
  101. hi! I like reading your ramblings, and you'd better believe that I will frequent this blog :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. hi! love Cake Wrecks and am excited to see what you have in store over here.

    ReplyDelete
  103. How exciting!

    I lurk regularly on cake wrecks, and I love your quips. I'm so glad you have a more general platform to amuse me with now.

    Yes. I expect to be amused.... but, no pressure or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Happy Birthday! I have to say I LOVE the name Epbot!

  106. You had me at "Is there a way to combine Star Trek, Steampunk, the Muppets, Darth Vader, Ghostbusters, and the Princess Bride? If so, I WILL FIND IT."

    Your new blog has, with a few words, been instantly added to my morning read.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Hi, and happy birthday!
    I find your incessant yammering to be the best part of CW, myself.

    If you're looking to collect general geekitude, I have an experiment of my own you might find interesting. http://speedingblogger.blogspot.com - it's a superhero story told entirely in blog updates, emails and social networking media.

    I'm looking forward to hearing more about your non-cake-related life and world!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hi! The commentary for CW is the best part. I love a well-turned pun. Speaking of: did you see Colbert's Best Pun Ever segment? I think it aired maybe a week ago Thursday - within the last two weeks for sure. It was AMAZING. You should look into something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  109. You have a direct line into my funny bone. Yammer away, my friend. Yammer away.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Happy Birthday, Jen, and I am so excited about MORE of your intelligent humor out in the world!

    ReplyDelete
  111. First, "Hi in the comments!"
    Second, I think you're funny. Otherwise it's just ugly cakes. Funny comments is what makes it work.

  112. SO happy you have this new blog! I love your "yammering" and can't wait to read more.

  121. Hey Jen, I have to say I'm so excited about your new blog. Your so-called yammering is what kept me coming back to cake wrecks for more (plus you live in my hometown!). I have "enlightened" my whole office and they are now fans of yours as well. Good luck and happy birthday!

  122. It's only $88? Put up a tip jar with an $88 dollar goal, you'll see it get filled fast. Or we could do a 5k...they're always trendy. "Sponsor me as I walk for Jen's Robot Necklace"...catchy.

    Seriously John, just buy her the damn necklace :-P

    Oh, and Happy Birthday to you and your new blog!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Happy Birthday Jen!
    Thank you for adding another blog that I have to check out before I can officially start my work day. I love your yammerings!

  124. HI! and your "yammering" is what I find most enjoyable about CW. So, a full on "yammer" page sounds awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Happy Birthday Jen! I'm so excited to read your new blog!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I love your yammerings. I find it makes the cake wrecks even funnier! so I can't wait to see what funny things you have in store for us ;). And if you weren't taken already, I would give John a run for his money ;). lol.....Anyway, Happy Birthday and I hope its a great one!

    ReplyDelete
  127. "Is there a way to combine Star Trek, Steampunk, the Muppets, Darth Vader, Ghostbusters, and the Princess Bride? If so, I WILL FIND IT"

    What no Dr? I think you mentioning that on Cake Wrecks is finally why I was able to get my wife to watch it with me. Happy Birthday from one of the "cool ones" from Framingham!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Well, glad to see I am not the only crazy blogger up early writing away! I am a yammer type follower, so give it your best go...I will be here reading!!

  149. Yay! I'm so excited! To me, your "yammering" has always been the best part of cakewrecks...and now I get more! I'll definitely be reading this blog...after all, we Jens need to stick together :)

  151. Happy Birthday!!! Congrats on your new blog. I'm happy there's more of you going around now to keep me even more amused! lol

  152. Jen, this is BRILLIANT! I'm so stoked!

    I totally understand what you mean--I have a family blog, and yeah it's fun and I love doing it. But there's just more to me than only my family, y'know? So I totally started up a top-secret second blog just for the people who can handle *me*, talking about things other than my (even if I do say so myself) insanely adorable child.

    I'm so stoked to add this to my Google Reader feed!

  154. Do you really need one more person to tell you how funny you are, how I would follow you to the ends of the bloggy-world to snicker at the very things at which you instruct me to snicker? Yes? Oh. Okay. No problemo.

    Jen, we wuv you. Happy birthday and happy second blog!

  159. Happy Birthday!

    And I like your constant yammering. It wouldn't be CW if the commentary wasn't there... it would be some scary world where I'd fear ordering a cake from any bakery.

  160. Hi! Jen, you rock! Also, love the necklace. Someone can buy me one too!

    ReplyDelete
  161. yeah a blog where you can talk more!! I love CW but I am really looking forward to reading this one. "HIYA"

  162. Hi in the comments!

    Couldn't resist. The older I get, the more my inner 6-year-old takes control.

  163. I just recently started using Google Reader and had added cake wrecks to my list since so many friends recommended it;) LOVE it!!! I'm excited to see what else you will have to say on this new blog! (also added to reader) lol

  164. Hi! Happy birthday also. I read CW every single day at work, but this is my first time commenting. I'm really excited about your new blog.....but what I'm most excited about is you sending me that extra robot necklace you get (since you are getting about 20). If not, that's cool. I'll just start a rival blog of gross looking restaurant foods, become super popular, and post my 9 page amazon wish list on it. Cool? I'll pay for shipping.

  165. Happy Birthday!!! Love you're CW blog (and all the hilarious retoric). Can't wait to see what this new one evolves into! Best of luck! Oh yeah...and...HI! Bazinga. :)

  166. Hi! Happy Birthday!

    I have a USB key that looks just like that necklace, only in PINK and with flashy eyes that twinkle when you plug it in.

    I am insanely in love with it. :D

    ReplyDelete
  167. A new blog is born, I hope you get your necklace.

    ReplyDelete
  168. This is so cool. Every morning my grand and I read CW and laugh and scratch our heads and giggle and wonder....how do they do that? I am so glad you're doing this too.
    Happy Birthday from my just turned 10 years old double digit granddaughter.....Holy Guacamole lots of comments and love already on this bloggie comment page. Yay for you.

  169. Hi!!!!

    I gotta say that I love Sheldon. My favorites are the following:

    Sheldon popping out of the balls & yelling to Leonard: Bazinga!

    and of courese:

    *knock knock knock* Penny!
    *knock knock knock* Sheldon!
    *knock knock knock* Penny!
    *knock knock knock* Sheldon!
    *knock knock knock* Penny!
    *knock knock knock* Sheldon!

  170. 'Hi' in the comments, and Happy Birthday! I have read CW for a very long time, now, and look forward to reading this blog too. :)

    You never fail to make me laugh--often out loud (not an easy thing to do).

  171. Hi! Happy Birthday! Also, I'm totally longing for that little robot now too! OH! And theres this book you should read....Chicks dig time lords" A celebration of Doctor Who by the women who love it. Here's a link!
