I’m sure I’m not the only person who types my name into search engines to check how famous I am. Ever since my Footlights days I have had high placings on Google, which is very satisfying given that other family members and most friends don’t feature at all.
James Aylett is an exception, featuring very very heavily when you type his name into Google. But then, he’s into computers, so he probably has ways of cheating. And it is satisfying to observe that, at present, the first page of results includes the intriguing words “Turning James Aylett into a dog” – which I can take full credit for.
In the meantime I have to battle it out with James W. Lark III for my position. Today, I am happy to report, I have risen above this shady character to second place on the Google leaderboard. What is also interesting is that, for the first time, it is my location on the Uncertainty Division website rather than the Footlights website that has gained me this position.
Are people genuinely looking at me on this website more than on the Footlights website? And if so, who are these people? And why don’t they ever leave comments on the diary?
In the name of expanding my internet profile, I can now also be found at the London News Review website.
