Beginner's luck...

Looks like has tapped me on the shoulder.

Somehow, an article I wrote here yesterday has received 138 views, and 66 facebook shares.

And it was basically because I was whining about something, when you really think about it.

I thought my coins were building up rather fast, and then MaeLou informed me that an article I wrote about the facebook 'privacy' thing had managed to land on the second page at Google.

Well...happy birthday to ME!

I wish I could say it was due to my superior writing skills, or something of that nature...but I must say it is simply pure luck.

Still, that should give all of you hope, because if I can do it...especially with what I would consider a "throwaway" article, then ANY of you can do it as well.'s to YOU...may you find here as well.

That's a brilliant way to go! No such luck for me yet, but I am hopeful. Sometimes our rants/angry posts get the most attention, whether we want them too or not haha

Good for you. I've always liked the personal approach to your writing (or ramblings, whichever you prefer) and I guess many others do too. There is an honesty about you that you may not realise comes across in your posts..but it's there.:-)

You had made a good point in that post, which resonated with many people.

It was probably the keywords in the post. "Facebook" and "privacy" are really a great couple. .
