I'm all a-Google

I just did a google search on 'random micro thoughts blog' and it showed this site! How cool is that? However, I should point out it's on like page seven, and it cites a post from last month, but hey, we amateur writers with few pretensions to fame gotta take what we can get. If you search on my >name< it cites an article I co-wrote as number one (at least it did the last time I checked); if on my husband's name, you get press releases from his job; my son, and you get a geology article for his summer internship with the state geological survey; and (alas!)with my daughter's name you get nothing at all about her. She was quite put out when I told her (bad mother! bad!) but for now she is doomed to anonymity. The problem with my blog, I think, is that "random thoughts" is WAY too common of a phrase for blogs and other venues. Adding 'micro' only means you get every site that has random thoughts about Microsoft. Pfft. Like Bill Gates needs any more web space than he already occupies. Guess I should have thought harder about some catchy phrase to use as a title for my blog. 'Catharsis' might have figured into it somewhere, except I'd have to spell check everytime I used it.....

Don't feel bad. My blog is called Based on a true story. I get hits from people searching for (any perverted act that you can think of) + true story. I'm sure they are SO disappointed.

I've been trying to work out how to get better search ratings too and have come to much the same conclusions.

Have to admit I've been sitting here, working my way back through your posts for half an hour, fascinated by what you are writing.
