 The Roaring Road Website Home Page by RoadTripDog
"What Could Possibly Go Wrong?"
"То, что, возможно не так? "

So The Roaring Road website has been up for almost a month now. A couple of weeks ago, I received a nice plug for the website from the Director of the Louise Brooks Society because I have made Louise part of the story. I immediately noticed more hits on the website from around the world. The LBS has about 1,500 members.

OK I admit to being a bit infatuated with Louise Brooks for the moment, and one of the reasons is the similarity between my Sweetie and Louise. When I met Sweetie she had her hair done in a bobbed cut very similar to Brooksie's bobbed and shingled look, except Sweetie is a blonde and Brooksie had black hair. Although they don't look exactly alike, from certain angles there is a definite resemblance.

For those unfamiliar with Louise, check out the Louise Brooks Society: pandorasbox.com and go to the photo gallery. There are also photos of Louise in the slideshow gallery on my website. If I can I'm going to put up a side by side comparison of Sweetie and Brooksie, but I have to find face photos of each that are at a certain angle and facial expression.

Recently I also saw a huge increase in page hits on the website from Russia, from many different portals. I did a search on StartPage (please, friends don't let friends use Google) and some of them are Russian language only websites. I have no idea why my website has become popular in Russia. Does this mean I will have to have a Russian edition?

Then today I saw one of the hits was from this portal: president-office.ru
And I thought FTW? Is Putin checking out my website?
No, he's not. I went and looked at it - and it's an office furniture website in Russia.

OK, back to work on the book. It's not going to finish itself.
