Google Blocked my Blog and Called it “Spam”

Received an email from Google early this morning.  I hoped it would be an offer to turn my blog into an HBO series. Then we might be able to pay for CJ’s college education, if he happens to be accepted at a college.  But in fact the email said that access to my blog would be blocked for several days because it had been identified as a “spam blog”.

“Blogs engaged in this behavior are called spam blogs, and can be recognized by their irrelevant, repetitive, or nonsensical text…”

A reader reacted to Google’s assessment of the blog: “It’s bad enough getting notes from Disney, now you have to get notes from Google.”

In anticipation of tomorrow’s journey, I found out some important info last night about Vanderbilt University, which is our first stop. I happened to meet an alum interviewer at the most unlikely of places – a bar mitzvah.  As we enjoyed our lamb chop h’or deurves, she told me that at Vanderbilt, boys wear shirts and ties to the football games.

Shared that news with CJ and that did not deter him from touring the school, so we’ll be on our way in the morning.
