Get your search on

Well, I did something useful today. I created a Google “custom search engine.”

Look over in the right-hand column, where it says “Search the Black Blogosphere.” I got more than 90 websites loaded up in that bad boy, covering everything from music and movies to current events.

Actually, I’m not sure how useful that’ll be to anybody. But say you read something – like about Buddy Miles – and you go, “I wonder what the rest of the black blogosphere is saying?” Search for “Buddy Miles,” and you’ll see.

Or maybe you want a quick handle on what folks think of the new Erykah Badu album. Just search for “New Amerykah.” It’s that damn easy.

So give it a test drive, why don’t you? Search for something silly, like “fried chicken” or “big booties.” Or, on the serious side, “Farrakhan” and “Obama.”

Whatever. It’s there if you wanna use it.

I searched "big booties" and your blog came up first (for this entry) and third (you talking about how you like big booties, but I'm not sure about the context since I didn't click on it). But the funniest thing was the extra ad in the right column for a "Watch Black Porn Now" site.

^ Ahh. They make you have ads on the results page. I guess pr0n makes the world go around.

Hey, thanks for listing my blog, Likembe, even though I'm not black!

Undercover Black Man said...

^ Just covering my bases in case somebody searches for “Gnaore Djimi.” ;^D

Cheers, John.

Thanks, IW. I plan to use it myself... like a reminder to read other people's blogs more.

I just got one but I have not really done anything with it yet. Guess I could do that today.
