Youth Publishing  

Posted

Have you ever Googled yourself? Don't be shy. We've all done it.

My problem is what turns up when I do. Poetry I got published when I was in High School. Really terrible stuff. There is one where I actually complain about how I don't have a boyfriend. In a POEM. A poem NOT on myspace.

What were these publishers thinking? Sure it sounds like a good idea to encourage youth. Give them a taste of publication and they will go after it like dogs. It encourages literacy in the youngins too. Lets do it!

Except now I will be plauged with those publications for the rest of my life. They don't go away. Google remembers. Google always remembers.

"Oh I think I'll do a report on vastly famous Tamara. I liked her in my text book. Lets see what comes up on google. Oh look. It's a poem about boyfriends... how... mature."

Thanks for encouraging me while I was crap guys. Thanks alot.

oh poor tamara. she was published in publishly things and boo hoo her poems were about not having a boyfriend. I think we all can identify with that kind of poem, it might be embarrassing but it wasn't crap, it was hight school, and at least you got published. I praise you my dear.... but you know what i'm going to do right now? i'm gonna google tamara bryan.

i bet if you googled me you'd find... nothing!

My pseudonym is actually the result of me being an excessive googler. It's much easier to compete with the handful of esbie's than with thousands sarah's. Yes, that is correct, I compete on google.
