misuse of an apostrophe ends only in disappointment

My blog is #10 on google under "100 best girls ass's" which, I can only imagine, could only have been a little disappointing for the browser.

Not that, you know, I'm NOT among the 100 best girl Asses, but there aren't any pictures.

Now if the browser had punctuated properly--"100 best girls' asses"--I wouldn't have come up at all.

Let's hope my visitor happened upon this page during his/her browse.

When I click your link you rank at #4. So you're either moving up in the world or I've got some serious porn filters working for me.

Nice ass. *snort*

why thank you.

i notice, however, that i've fallen to #30 now. hmm.

That's only because you've been confined to your office chair for the past two weeks. Once up and moving again, you'll perk right up. ;)

I dunno. I think there's a challenge in there somewhere . . . ?

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say you ran that search because your analytics showed an incoming hit, and it wasn't just an *ahem* speculative google...

I also hoped they found this site, Apostrophe Abuse (with photos).

Another hapless Googler shot down from fulfilling their fantasies on the internet. It really is a shame...

Well, then there is the moon bit.

An aside. Do you follow Mark Aronson's blog, Non-fiction Matters on the SLJ site?

He has invited and author, Elizabeth Partridge, and an editor, Jill Davis of Bloomsbury, to describe the process involved in creating a non-fiction picture book.

I am curious. Is this process similar to yours?

alex: benefit of said doubt is much appreciated, if perhaps unwarranted.

katherine: MOON. excellent point. "moonrat the ed ass" could just be "moon ass," eh? very clever.

and i hadn't seen the mark aronson thing, but now i'm looking. i'll try to post on this later because it's very interesting. thanks for the tip.
