It's a Google world.
1. Some people love a recent article I wrote.
2. Some people hate the same article.
3. I am engaged to Tom Brady.
4. A lot of people link to me that haven't been showing up in my website stats referring links.
5. When I Google my name, it brings up my friend Kenzie Shores in the ad words on the side.
6. Any blog I've posted a comment on, it brings up their blog.
7. Google still refers my website to captivating-studios.com sometimes almost a year later since I've transferred everything to scarlettlillian.com.
8. When people link to me on their blog, they call me "famous" and "photographer extraordinaire" and "phenom". LOL!
9. People blogged about seeing me at WPPI who I was unaware knew I even existed.
10. I have the best brides who rave about me on the Knot forums.
And the most fascinating thing I found a while back was that I have a baby named after me. Ok, so not after me specifically, but there is a blogger baby also named Scarlett Lillian. And what a miracle story this precious little girl is! When I ran across her blog a few months back, she was just born a premie 10 weeks early at 2lbs, 12 oz. Her mom started a blog in her honor to keep friends and family updated on her health and growth. Now 7 months later, she healthy and happy and a true survivor. At the time of discovering her blog, I left a comment telling for the mom telling her I ran across the blog and that I would be praying for baby Scarlett Lillian. It wasn't until last week, out of the blue I received this touching email in response to everything my dad is going through:
I have been reading your blog for about 7 months now. I know exactly how long I've been reading your blog because that's how old my daughter is. You left a comment on my blog after googling your name which also happens to be my daughter's name. She was born 10 weeks premature and weighed only 2 lbs 12 oz. You left a comment on my blog saying that you would pray for her and that God would be with us. That comment touched me immensely. It touched me that a stranger would offer a prayer on my daughter's behalf and after reading through your blog, I realized that you sincerely meant that you would, even if only once. Since then, I have read your blog.
I am sorry to hear about your dad and I sincerely hope that he is able to overcome this battle. I will pray for you and your family, that no matter the outcome you will find strength and understanding in our Heavenly Father's plan. I admire your faith and your courage to be so honest on your blog.
PS: My little Scarlett Lillian is thriving and growing. My husband and I always joked before she was born that we hoped she had dark hair and green eyes like Scarlett O'Hara (whom she was also named after). Then you commented on my blog and I told my husband "I hope Scarlett looks like this Scarlett." :)
PPS: My husband is a cinematographer/photographer and he enjoys your site, especially when you get all technical about your shots.
You never how Google will bring the world together, even two perfect strangers who connect through the beauty of prayer. It's a small "blogging" world after all.
