I was thinking about egg throwing, than I went online and there was/is an egg throwing championship in England along with many other events dealing with eggs. Whether it’s true or not it is worth looking at the website,regarding methods for selling an uncommon sport.

Because I was curious

After I apparently, although unintentionally, annoyed and insulted the members of the Long Island Paranormal Society, and Mills told us that they shouldn’t have been able to find the blog because he turned off the search capabilities of google, I decided to try and figure out how they found us.

So I decided to make friends with google and begin searching around. I started out with my name, because I knew from other classes that had gone digital in one way or another, that I would gather few hits and I just wanted to see if the class blog would pop up on these hits. No such luck.

Then I started looking for the Long Island Paranormal Society, thinking maybe they had googled themselves and found out that we were talking about them. Without quotes around the name there was a lot of hits but nothing that involved us. With quotes the hits were limited to two pages and still there was nothing.

So then I searched the blog its self, (the reference Mills makes to the class pops up towards the beginning) with out the quotes buried somewhere deep into the results of google, ( I don’t remember what page) I got a hit. When I put it in quotes it was on the first page, the eighth hit, was a link to us,

But what I can’t figure out is how they found this comment, on this blog. Because they would not have found the blog by looking for Mills and they would not have found it by looking for themselves, they didn’t know I was writing about them so they would not have found it by looking for me. I even tried to figure out if maybe they had searched something like, “You can’t make this stuff up.” Still nothing. I’m nosey, I want to know how they found us. I don’t know if anyone else is interested in this, but if someone has a suggestion of something else I should search, or if someone else searches something that results in some hits please let me know.

I’m breaking ground in terms of online blogging, so I have yet to familiarize myself with all that can be done. In the meantime, I read some posts and thought that Scott made a good point about the ‘MythBusters’ television show and the hoaxes they’ve ‘busted’.
