Scott Lyons (Not the Porn Star)

Have you ever googled yourself? Well, I entered "Scott Lyons" to see what would turn up, and it seems that I share my name with a gay porn star - near as I can tell without completely defrauding myself. Now my wife turned up in The Hound of the Baskervilles and I turned up in Pornland. Sweet.

So immediately I began searching other peoples names, some of your names in fact, to see if this Pornland thing was just something they do to get people to visit their sites - you know, something that generates porn sites for any name you type in at Google. (Hey, I was desperate.) I learned some interesting things about y'all. But no one turned up as a porn star.

I don't want to be a porn star. I wonder if this other Scott Lyons does.

I'm happy being boring, bespectacled me: Christ follower, husband, lover, best friend, daddy, jungle gym, writer, reader, friend, son, brother, family, great thinker, full of crap, smart-ass, dumb-ass, introvert, melancholy, emotional, humorist, satirist, falstaffian, pun-lover, sinner, saint, man, and more. Why doesn't any of that come up when I google "Scott Lyons"? I think it ought to.

You do realize that by posting something containing your name and "porn star" you've added one more link to Google's association of the two?

Yeah, I thought about it, but then I realized I didn't care. Maybe some poor guy looking for . . . whatever, will find my blog and see something of value here. I imagine that probably wouldn't happen, but here's to hope.
