Help me keep writing like a real human being. I can’t do it without you!

It’s almost impossible to find me through Google Search. If you want to please Google, you have to write in a very specific way: like a robot.

Have you noticed how many times writeres repeat the same phrase over and over, as if they got caught in some kind of mental loop? They write like this on purpose because Google loves it, and it pays to be loved by Google.

I think it’s dumb, and it makes for awful writing. So help me write in a human style, a natural style—while respecting you, my worthy readers by not slapping you over and over with the same keyword phrase.

This only works if you share links to this site with friends, in forums and via social media. Google doesn’t love me, but that’s okay…as long as you’re willing to step up and help.
