I didn’t notice when it happened, but this humble blog is now on the first page of results if you google for “evil genius”, with or without quotes. That’s pretty cool, considering most of the balance are related to the video game of that name. There was no trickery involved in this, no bombing campaign, just plain trying to write something worth reading every day.
In other blog news, I broke down and made a favicon for this domain. It’s pretty rudimentary, just the initials “EG”. I finally got tired of watching umpteen 404’s happen on it every day. Now that it is a de facto standard that the address bar and bookmarks of most browsers (and Shrook, for example) use the icon in so many places, I figure I might as well have one. If it ever seems important, I’ll make a better one. For now, this will do.
