Hey.  Hi there.  Hello.


My name is Samantha Clarke.  I think I’m funnier than I probably am.  I write stuff, mostly on the interwebs, sometimes in real life.  Sometimes it’s about important things, like politics or social issues, and sometimes it’s about boobs or Ted Nugent.  Usually it’s on this blog, but sometimes it’s elsewhere.


If this were an interview, I would upscale that little tidbit to “My skills and interests are wide-ranging and varied.”  Oh yeah, I’m also excellent in interviews.  Relevant?  Probably not.


I hail from the hipster utopia of Portland, Oregon, and I’m sick of people complaining about all the Californians moving here.  I have lived in other states, but I moved back home because for all its flaws…I mean c’mon, it’s Portland.  It’s got that quirky charm that is totally undeniable.


If you’re the stalker-y type, I can be followed with varying levels of intensity on Twitter (I am good at the tweets, I twitter a lot), Facebook (who doesn’t like Facebook?), Pinterest (I am bad at Pinteresting), and even by email if you’re so inclined (I’m serious!  Look at the bottom of this post!).


You can hire me for things too, if you want.  I’m actually a lot better at some things, like things you might hire a person for, than I am at writing “About Me” pages.


You can contact me by email:




…with questions, ideas, requests, pitches, offers, or anything else regarding my blog, and I will respond in a timely, responsible manner.  Probably.
