The Patio Boat seems to be buoyant. Link to it from your .orgs and .edus and watch the world come on board. (Supposedly inbound links from .org and .edu domains are especially prized in Google's relevance algorithm. Perhaps it's finally time for KatieTheBeagle.org to make its links o'plenty debut!)
This upswing in traffic also means that I made more in March from the little Google AdSense account that I opened on March 10 than I did from being president of our village. Final tally? Silly Blog $27.88, Public Service, $20.00. I'm sure that somewhere therein lie the seeds of humanity's inevitable collapse.
Speaking of fame, I know you've all been waiting with bated breath to find out why I have a photo of Carrie Fisher's key ring. (Most of you have been waiting with bated breath; Katie the Beagle has been waiting with baited breath, breath that smells like bait.)
As a reminder, the photo in question:
And no, I did not pull that photo off the 'Net. In fact, here's another taste of the high-powered celebrity rumor-mongering yet to come. I actually used the keys that are attached to Carrie Fisher's key ring -- both of them. Oh, yes, there's a humdinger of a story still to come and the world demands to know it. Stay tuned, Star Wars geeks and Patio Boat readers. (Frankly, those are two groups with considerably more overlap than I care to admit.)
Coincidence or red herring? You be the judge.
