Today I decided to see if this blog could be found by simply googling my name. First, I tried "Diane Jones" (without the quotes). I got endless pages because it's hardly an uncommon name. There were marine biologists, real estate agents, several teachers, a few authors, one well-known Canadian athlete, but not my blog. So then I tried "Diane C B Jones" (first without quotes) and got all sorts of people with names like C B Jones or C B something else, Diane something else, but no Diane C B Jones. Then I tried it with the quotes, but google told me there were no matches and to try with quotes removed. I tried that again, and got the same list as before. So, if I thought this blog would give me a web presence, I was mistaken.
