I have woken up to a bloggingly sunny day this morning.
First I discovered that the recent Google review of their Page Rankings has scored me a Page Rank of 4. For those that are not familiar with Google Page Rank, that’s pretty cool.
Basically they group all the web sites that are in the public domain into 10 ranks; the very top sites in the World ranked 10 and the overwhelming majority having a rank of Zero. How they work out the rankings is a total mystery, known only to Google and the Dark Forces. I think they throw a bunch of statistics and other factors into a big cauldron, add the eye of a newt and the wing of a bat, mix well, season to taste and cook in a slow oven for several months. Hubble bubble, toil and trouble.
Anyway, from my point of view it’s a lovely surprise, so I’m not too concerned about the recipe because the way Google chops and changes its rules and algorithms chances are I’ll never be able to work out how it happened.
I’m a believer in opportunities and I’ve been playing around with the concept of advertising on Scraps of Mind for some time. This has convinced me that the time is right, so I’ve launched the Scraps of Mind Advertising Page (top navigation bar) with a number of advertising package options. I want you guys to share in this so if you know of anyone who might be interested in advertising on Scraps of Mind I’m offering a 20% referral/finder’s fee. You can
- contact me with an introduction of the prospective sponsor, and give us your paypal email address, or
- you can have the sponsor contact me directly saying “Jane Smith referred me, her email address is yourPaypal<at>emailaddress.com”. Upon payment, a 20% referral fee will be paypal-ed to you!
Scraps of Mind is a very important part of my life and I’m thrilled with both these events because they help to reinforce that all the time and effort is worthwhile. But fundamentally the reason why these achievements have eventuated is because of you. It’s you readers of Scraps of Mind that have helped me create this blog and your support that has encouraged me to work on building it up.
So thank you all very much and you should all pat yourselves on the back.
