Because of a glitch I couldn’t access my articles at Blogcritics, so I googled myself to find links to my work. I found articles about me or my work that I did not know existed. I‘ve written about everything from hair to hurricanes, but search engines favor my writings on neo-paganism. Citations of my pagan articles are all over the internet; on websites, on a blog, on Blogcritics, on Google, on Yahoo, and most surprisingly, cited as a resource on a
Catholic website. They referred to my article, “Catholicism vs. Witchcraft” as material to help fight cults with. Do you think they read it carefully? I’ve proved what the statistics say, neo-paganism is tremendously popular, but not everyone who cites my articles is a believer. Even people who don’t like Wicca love to read about it and write about it. Why? I’ll tell you why: It’s pagalicious.
My Google search also indicated that my article about the famously heterosexual Owen Wilson was cited on some kind of “gay stallion” website. I didn’t find any trace of my article there (in the few seconds I cared to spend at the site.) I did notice that their stallions appear to be human rather than equine. I’m glad, when you think about the implications. S.K., would you happen to know anything about this?
Before this, I had seen my Blogcritics articles come up on Google News searches any number of times. The first time it happened, I had the top article under Brad Pitt’s name. I wasn’t expecting that, and I was totally shocked, and thrilled as well. Since then, on any number of occasions I’ve done Google News searches under celebrities’ names and seen my own articles. I’m like hey, that’s me! That’s mine! Why aren’t I getting paid lot of money?
As Halloween, or the Witches’ New Year, approaches, I will list my pagan articles:
Catholicism vs. Witchcraft Part II
Warning: Contains an irreverent satire written by a feminist pagan.
Cerulean’s Favorite Quotations
Is not about paganism per se, but contains some quotes from pagan sources. It contains general spiritual wisdom.
Have joyous holiday.
