The Officer "Smith" Phenomenon...

I occasionally do a search for Officer Smith, just for the hell of it.

Usually I Google myself, and it tripped me out when I was the first hit. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, since Blogger is, after all, a Google product.

But today I searched Officer Smith on Windows Live Search, a'la MSN.com, and found some rather interesting, and some rather disturbing, hits.

I have apparently been convicted of several crimes, been killed in numerous incidents, or otherwise had my name strewn across the news. Well, not me really, but other Officer Smiths.

Then I stumbled upon this. And I now have something on the order of a hundred hits a day.

Wow! Here I started this thing to vent my frustrations, and to have a place to put my feelings and thoughts in writing. I intended to write this blog as an outlet. Maybe have a few family members read it occasionally, or maybe just do it for myself. I never dreamed it would be this big of a deal.

I'm certainly not complaining by any means. I kinda like looking at my StatCounter hits and seeing that I have readers from all over the world.

It'll never make me famous, since I do all of this anonymously, but I don't do this, or anything else for that matter, for fame. I do it for fun.

This blog has gone way farther than I ever imagined it would. And boy, has it been a hell of a ride so far. Thanks to all of my readers for, well, reading.
