The Google search box is back...
December 30, 2001

and it WORKS!!!

After trying for nine months to get Google to index the whole site, I've finally succeeded. At this point in time, you can find any entry written before December 8, 2001. Just enter some specific words that you remember from the entry, hit the Google Search button, and there it will be.

Remember Crawdad's famous entry about the woman in the restaurant with the box. Just enter "woman restaurant box" and there it is.

How about Red's entry about the ME who investigated the suicide. You might try "ME suicide" but you'll get 21 entries, because "ME" is the same as "me" and apparently there are 21 entries in all that contain the words "suicide" and "me". So you want to only see the entries by Red? Just add the name of her journal in quotation marks like this:

ME suicide "butterfly dreams"

Now you get just one entry in the results and it's the one you're looking for.

It can also be fun to see how many times a journal refers to a particular word. Want to know how many time Darlinggirl has mentioned mascara? Just search for:

"morning song" mascara

and you can read in the top line "Results 1 - 4 of 4." Four times. How many times has she mentioned Texas? Replace mascara by texas and you see the answer is 27. And in how many entries has she referred to "Himself"? 88!

Want to know how many entries you have in your own journal? Just enter the name of your journal by itself in quotation marks. When I do that for this one, " journal" I see the answer is 24. Actually, to correct for some pages that are not entries, I need to subtract one for each month the journal has been alive and one for the page in the front index it appears on. So the actual number of entries is closer to 19 (24 minus 5). But it's a good estimate anyway.

Give it a try. I bet you'll find it very useful, whether you are looking for an entry that you remember in your own journal or just looking for other people who have written on any given subject.

Happy Journaling,

- Frank

P.S. Apologies to Crawdad, Red, and Darlinggirl for using your journals as examples. I hope you don't mind.
