Did anyone watch a certain cooking show this morning, where “it’s a good thing” is said quite often?
There I was, painting in the quiet of The Cypress Cottage, when I decided to turn on the TV to drown out all my unfruitful thoughts. I don’t often have the opportunity to watch daytime TV, but I wanted some noise to distract me, and not having a radio on hand, the boob tube was it.
First, I listened to the women on the View cut each other off rudely. And I won’t even go into what the subject matter of this particular episode was.
And then came the “how to do everything show”. As I listened to the trailer on what was to come during the show, I could not believe my ears!
For this to make sense to you, I must note here that I have had over 1000 people in the past week looking for a blackberry cobbler recipe. Got that? On with the story.
The hostess of the show, who shall not be named here, was cutting in on my action! Can you believe it? I know good and well she had her staff of 100 researchers scanning the internet for the MOST POPULAR BLACKBERRY COBBLER RECIPE IN THE WORLD. And we all know that is right here on Bayou Woman Cooks, right? I mean, she didn’t even ask my permission, for pete’s sake. (Didn’t she learn ANYTHING?!)
I guess I should be thrilled that I am in such good company.
I fear, though, instead of ladies coming to my blog to get my “Self-crusting Blackberry Cobbler” recipe, her fancy-high-priced-sponsored website is going to grab all the search engines and snag all the wonderful readers who could have come here and seen my step-by-step pictorial.
So, I am crushed. My fifteen minutes of cobbler fame was so wonderful while it lasted.
If you, by some strange chance, stumbled upon this blog looking for a blackberry cobbler recipe, then God bless you for passing up the Rich and Famous and coming on down where the little people post their blogs for free and never spend a dime on search engine optimization.
Praise be to Google!!!!!!!
or should I say
Please Google, don’t let me down, now!
