Google has sniffed me

I started this blog just before lunch on Sept. 14, and for this first time late this afternoon, it appears as the result of a Google search for the term isopaleocopria. That's about 48 hours. I'm impressed.

Several people have asked me what my blog's rubric means. I made it up. It's pseudo-Greek. I wanted to coin something akin to a hapax legomenon, in this case, a word used by only one writer. When you have a common name, like I do, and you aren't famous, like I'm not, it makes "googling" yourself easier. The term's translation is the sum of its parts:

 iso"same"
 paleo"old"
 copria"sh\*t"

So far, it hasn't gotten me into any trouble.

Your word also helps other curious people google you who wonder just what the email signature block could mean! :) -- I may make one up myself.
