The title of ‘The Silly-Savvy Salopian’, has been acquired due to the author’s eccentric ways and her egocentric obsession with Shropshire.
So deluded is she, that she claims to have been birthed within a Salopian cave, and to be descended from every significant soul to set foot on Salopian soil.
No-one has yet dared to point out to this fruit-loop that she herself lives in Suffolk, a point which gives rise to some serious doubts about her credibility.
It is, of course, just about feasible this red-haired Salopian is related in some way to the cave-dwelling-ginger-bearded dwarves of the Shires. Did her unusual height give rise to suspicions about her pedigree? Could this have led to her expulsion from the aforesaid-cave community?
Whether she be deluded, or not, the blogger’s enforced hermitage has resulted in an outpouring, not of tears, but of scrawl after scrawl, of memoirs, stories, reviews, articles, poems and creative writing tips: a plea to her readers to read, to believe, to pick up a pen, and to crawl on out of their own comfort zones …

A savvy disclaimer for my fellow readers, creatives and gene hunters:
All creative content is tongue-in-cheek, has no claim to the truth and is not intended to be taken literally!
As a Salopian exile, I have been forced to make do with limited funds, and the reader can correctly assume that these funds and more-importantly, my feet, do not do not stretch to the challenge of exhaustive-archival research.
It should also be pointed out that the surname ‘Cool’, and any associated Christian names, might not be good starting points for serious head hunters, unless, like myself, they just happen to be a lot more silly than they are savvy.
Then again, in terms of my claims of descension from William The Conqueror, Edward I, Henry VIII & Co. (i.e. his many wives and mistresses), and every other significant personage, be they late or present, right down to the infamous royal exile, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex & Canadian Reality TV star, then just take a look at at my flowing-orange locks and … doubt … no further …
