Last night my nineteen year old son was stuck in due to a snowstorm and we had some great bonding time together. The best part was that he told me about something that happened that made him think I was cool, or at least that this blog is.
We were discussing our favorite TV show, Lost, as we often do. He told me that a week or two before he did a search on Google to find a recap for the latest Lost episode. My blog came up at the top of the search rankings. He was so impressed that this could happen to his mom's blog. He even told some friends and they were impressed. It isn't everyday that my son brags about something I did to his friends. (However, it took him two weeks to remember to tell me this story).
While we were talking I told him of a few other phrases that I know always brings many visitors to this blog (ex. Life on Mars songs). He tried searching them and lo and behold they all came up within the top five results on Google. He got more impressed as time went on. That lead to a discussion of the TV shows, music and movies that I write about, which really created a full circle, because discussing these things with my sons is what gave me the idea to write Connect with your Teens with Pop Culture and Technology to begin with. Then his girlfriend called, and bonding time was over.
