A lot of browsers find this blog when looking for specific topics, or posts about certain people. Anderson Cooper, say, or Bear County, or Mateer's Restaurant or "Fairhope Storybook Cottage." Almost every time they would have been disappointed, because what they will find here is the rantings of one very opinionated woman -- me -- usually not exactly on the topic for which they were seeking information.
My opinions are not unbiased, even though they are almost always right, but I'm sure they are something of a slap in the face for the casual Internet browser who has a sincere curiosity and a need to know. Last week someone Googled "Bear County" and hit my post about Stephen Colbert, who did a few shows on an Alabama county called Colbert County which he insisted on pronouncing with the same French accent he uses for his own name. If someone came here loaded for bear, he was in the wrong place indeed.
On the other hand, if the browser was looking for some genuine admiration for Anderson Cooper , he would not have been disappointed. If he was seeking information about Andy Warhol, he might have learned quite a bit about the world of modern art. If he had a question about Southern women as pictured by Tennessee Williams, he would have had his eyes opened. And if he wanted to learn how to watch movies with his eyes open, he was sent to quite another place.
I've tried to reference other blogs with a lot of what is known in Internet terms as "html" before, and as you see I'm still trying, but, if you click on any of the above and don't get where I was trying to send you, you're on your own. You can search specific topics on your own by typing your topic in the "Search This Blog" box at the top of the blog. Finding Fair Hope is a blog full of opinions of all kinds, from who really wrote the plays of Shakespeare to the institutions of old Fairhope (Alabama). Its name is derived from my own fair hope of getting the best from Fairhope and my only fair hope that I will.
Welcome to a slightly skewed world of many things.
