For some reason I tend to like it when my subjects use their names. So I named this essay “A Tale of Two”.
Well, “A Tale of Two” is actually a collection of short essays about two people. One person, in the form of an essay, tells the story of the other. The other person then tells the story of the first. This is what I liked about the name. I like the way it suggests that this is a collection of stories told by two people, but then the title suggests that it is a collection of two essays.
I first heard about this essay when my friend and I were in the middle of debating whether to name our first child Erin or Eric. I was torn between two options because I like the name Erin and also thought that it might be a bit presumptuous, a little pretentious, maybe a little like we were telling the story of our lives.
I’m not sure if my friend was really swayed by my argument or if I was just being a bit too proud in the face of so much negativity. In any case, the more I think about it, the more I like the name, but the only way I know how to describe it is, it’s like two essays.
In short, Erin is the little girl who was born in the year 2001. In our story, she’s the protagonist of the story, the one who’s been awakened on a beach in the year 1999. She’s the one who wants to run away, but then she sees the old guy she was with just before her mother died and he tells her that he’s the one who sent her to the island and that she can be free.
To me, that’s like two essays. First, the little girl and the old guy. Then, the little girl who woke up on a beach in the year 2000. It’s like a story with two different perspectives.
It’s the third major ranking factor in Google. So when someone has a link to a page on your website, it means that at least one of your pages has a relationship to that page on the outside. But there can also be links that don’t seem to be related to a single page. While it’s possible to use a “white hat” link-building strategy, that does not mean you have to go around linking to every other page on the web.
I don’t think we’re going to have that many links for a while. But its really fun to see how the game plays out. Colt’s going to need a lot of help in his quest to eliminate eight Visionaries.
I’m just waiting for the game to release, then we’ll see how much of a link it really has.
