when people hit my blog, they’re usually looking for pirate maps. there’s some interest in the quantum posts, and no interest in the plot of the story i’m going to write.
i’m used to this. in one of my unfinished novel i kept getting search hits for one of my characters, a guy who was a professional barney. he was a great character, and deserved the name, but i had to change it and actually redact it through the blog, because i kept getting hits by people looking for barney.
and not just the purple dinosaur, but kill barney, death barney, electrocute barney. it was frightening, actually. but i learned about extraneous search terms. unfortunately, the pirate theme has worked itself firmly into my story line, so i’m going to keep having a million hits a day landing on ‘pirate map’. i’m not counting hits, so i don’t care. i’m doing all this for me, and you all can read along, but you don’t have to, and i don’t mind.
