Allow Myself, to Introduce Myself…

The Daily Tay is a part of several affiliate advertising programs, meaning if you click and/or make a purchase from this site I may make a commission from it. I will use said commission to buy Harlow annoyingly expensive dog food because if I buy the cheap shit he knows and gets very angry with me. Any leftover blog commission money will go toward my Chardonnay fund. And perhaps my Cheeze-It fund. Not really sure yet.

    Cute blog!!! I'm from/living in Nebraska now…. and yes, Chicago is a "big city" ha! new follower!

  6. July 23, 2012 / 10:13 pm

    Taylor- l can't get enough enough of your sarcasm and dog-obsession! ln fact those are two things people would say about me! l even made an "About Me" for my dog on my blog (doesn't everyone want to meet my dog?…)

  7. August 7, 2012 / 7:25 pm

    YES! I just stumbled upon your blog and I LOVE your sarcastic honesty. Love Chicago – can't wait to read more! <3 your newest follower!

  8. August 28, 2012 / 1:14 pm

    Love your sarcasm, but it is clear that I must stop reading your posts at work. Apparently software product briefs are not as laugh-out-loud funny as I have been leading everyone in my office to believe with my muffled snorts. Love it!

    Just found your blog through Brie @ Sophistifunk 🙂
    Love your honesty and writing style. It's a nice breath of fresh air in the blogging world of the "Mormafia" 🙂

  10. September 13, 2012 / 6:13 am

    So good to "meet" you Taylor!! And you are too funny… Great for a good laugh!

  11. September 19, 2012 / 1:02 pm

    Love your blog! New follower:)

  12. September 21, 2012 / 2:14 pm

    I think this "About" section needs a little sprucing up! Where are all the sexy pictures? Pay me $20 and I'll fix it up for you in no time.

    Just kidding. I love it.

    Also, I'm on a huge Taylor stalking kick lately. Have you noticed?

  13. September 21, 2012 / 4:53 pm

    I'm absolutely in love with your blog. I came across your blog thanks to Stephanie @ snhblog and I'm very glad I did. You are such a character I love it! You have yourself a new follower 🙂

  14. December 5, 2012 / 4:53 pm

    So glad I found your blog! You are so hilarious and if you wrote a book it would be someone like me that would buy it!

  15. December 20, 2012 / 11:59 am

    Harlow is the cutest thing ever!

  16. January 16, 2013 / 7:17 pm

    xoxo, gossip girl! LOL! This is quite possibly my new fave blog!

  17. January 22, 2013 / 12:56 pm

    Just discovered your blog. I am a Chicagoan too!

  18. February 11, 2013 / 8:43 pm

    I would most definately buy your book 🙂 I love your writing style!

    From your newest fan


  19. February 16, 2013 / 9:05 pm

    Yes I'm new and found you via the contest. BUT, I have to say I love your chatty style and as a group ya'll are the most entertaining bloggers I've stumbled upon in a long time.

  20. March 7, 2013 / 1:34 pm

    Just found your blog! I live with my boyfriend in Lincoln Park and I am from a super small town and always point that out to people. Oops #bigcityfail


  21. March 24, 2013 / 8:00 pm

    Heyyy there fellow Chicagoan! 😀

    I live in Riverwest. I've always lived in a city or close to a city, but I still find Chicago intimidating. Especially when I have to drive.

  22. April 18, 2013 / 3:01 pm

    New follower! Can't wait to read more.
    Feel free to check out my budding blog, Slightly Strange and let me know what you think!

  23. May 20, 2013 / 5:13 am

    Greetings! Just stumbled upon your blog and love it. I may or may not have just gone through twenty-five of your most recent posts. The BSS one cracked me up. So now I'm your newest follower/stalker. Cheers.

  24. May 23, 2013 / 3:15 pm

    I have officially found a new FAVORITE blog!! And I'm a published writer too!

  25. June 18, 2013 / 2:41 pm

    New follower, gotta love the Nebraska girl!!! I am also from Nebraska finishing my last year here at UNL – with big dreams to get out of this state!! <3 can't wait to read more

  26. June 27, 2013 / 3:11 pm

    I love your blog and sense of humor! I came across it when I googled "how to get your blog noticed" and I loved your advice! Thanks!


  27. July 15, 2013 / 4:34 am

    i found your bog the other day and i'm just now getting the chance to read through it.
    so far, so good! i'm really looking forward to getting caught up! 😀


  28. August 6, 2013 / 4:38 pm

    My sister came across your blog and sent me the article on how to "get your blog noticed" since I am just starting out. I love your page! Would you say that it was hard for you to make everything so personal so public?

    Thanks 🙂


    • August 6, 2013 / 6:11 pm

      Oh yes, there are times I definitely share too much 🙂 Live and learn. That's the beauty of blogging.

  29. September 17, 2013 / 4:39 pm

    Just started blogging and I love your blog so far! You're hilarious! Also please to see you live in Chicago! I live right outside of Chicago 🙂

  30. October 7, 2013 / 6:49 pm

    So nice to "meet" you!
    I just found your blog!
    I am now following!!
    Looking forward to keeping up!


  31. October 30, 2013 / 3:11 pm

    Hi Taylor! I love your honesty and you are so darn funny! I came across your blog after I started blogging a little over a month ago. Your blog has become one of my daily reads. Keep up the amazing work! P.S. I just participated in your "Someday I Will" link-up and it was such a blast! P.P.S. "My name is Donna and I'm also addicted to playing the lottery."

  32. November 17, 2013 / 10:54 am

    I've been looking for new blogs to follow and am glad I found yours! I thought I was the only kid who had to listen to Tony Robbins as a kid!! If you ever want to read about life in Canada (because it's a true mystery) come on over to ! Thanks for the new reading material 🙂

  33. December 4, 2013 / 12:54 pm

    Hi there! I just started following along and loving it so far –will definitely be checking in frequently. Plus I am also in Chicago which makes it extra exciting 🙂 Have a lovely day, thanks for the laugh!

  34. March 30, 2014 / 11:08 am

    hi! new reader here. and i'm a chicago girl too! currently living in north carolina, i miss that windy city every day! say hi for me!

  35. April 1, 2014 / 1:51 pm

    It's possible that you are my Midwestern twin, disregarding the fact that you're way hotter and of course, blonde. I am a pharmaceutical sales rep, love the stand up comedy scene over here on the east coast, and have a bulldog that rules my life. Just thought I'd send a message of appreciation for being a hotter version of myself. You rock!

    • April 2, 2014 / 10:06 am

      Well I have a feeling you are way richer and more professional 🙂 Can I have your job please?

  36. April 23, 2014 / 2:55 pm

    I will whole heartly admit I just found your blog and stalked you all the way back to August. Way to go. Love it! I am a Michigan native and frequently visit the city, your posts about Dunlay's on Clark made my mouth water.


  37. April 24, 2014 / 12:37 am

    I love reading your blog as a fellow Chicago dweller, transplanted from Massachusetts instead of Nebraska. I also have a pit bull mix (but we believe she is a bit vizsla) who is my main girl, and who oddly looks just like your pup.

  38. June 5, 2014 / 4:31 pm

    i love your blog! wanted to give you a shout-out and let you know that i am your born-again newest follower :D!!!

    Your 'about me' section is one of my favorites! In fact, your whole blog is what inspired me in the first place. Love, love, love it! 🙂

  40. September 14, 2014 / 10:59 pm

    I request a blog post on what to do in Nebraska. We're moving our family of 6 to Colorado, with a two month pit stop in Omaha. Don't ask. It's twice as exotic and exciting as it sounds. (No it isn't.) At any rate, I'm all ears on how to do it up right in Nebraska.

    • September 15, 2014 / 1:05 pm

      Omaha is great! You have to go to the Henry Doorly Zoo, it's seriously top 5 in the nation. And go to the Old Market (it's a really cute down town area for shopping and eating!) You'll have a blast I swear 🙂

    I'm a long-time follower but for some reason this is the first time I've read this page. I love it. Please write a book, I'd read it at least three times, I promise.
