Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

I know I said I didn’t want much for Christmas this year, but there is something *you* can help with.

For the longest time, I was the #2 Travis Smith on Google.  And you know, I was OK with that.  The #1 guy was a drummer in a rock band, and designed album covers.  That’s, you know, COOL, and who am I to want to trump coolness?  That would be uncool.  I was cool with being #2.

But then the other Travis Smiths started showing up.  Travis Smith, the pitcher for the Atlanta Braves.  Travis Smith, fictional character in the TV series Oz.  Travis Smith, robbed yet another liquor store.

And now, there’s a guy who calls himself Travis Smith Inc. and says he’s “a seasoned internet marketer.”  And now I’m, like, #7, below a guy named Travis Smith who does original automotive artwork.

That just ain’t right.

It’s time for me to make a stand.

And that’s going to take some help from you.

What I’d really like is for you to link to me.  From your blog, from your twitter stream, from your Links page, anything.  Here’s some handy code to help:

Anyway, that’s what I could really use, a little more respect in Google this year, thanks to my awesome friends. I really appreciate your help!

Overheard

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
