    Hi Mari! Did you ‘scratchblog’ yet? We have a ‘scratchblogging’ tag on flickr. I’m going to post mine up soon.

    Mel, MY handwriting is neat? Wow. Thanks! Next post I’m going to try to sit at a proper desk and use proper posture like the nuns taught me.

    i think that this is indeeed searchable and catalogable by Goolge or other search engines. There is a technology called OCR- optical Character Recognition that is pretty advanced and is used to convert items such as this into text files.

    I know about OCR but I doubt that Google treats the scratchblogging as anything other than an image at this point. Plus, I’d love to see any OCR program that can decipher my handwriting to over a 50% accuracy rate!
