I'm Othercat. I don't care what Google says.

I turned on my first computer in February of 2008. That day, while filling out my first sign up form, I had to make a choice as to what my username would be. The first name that popped into my head was "Othercat", so that's what I chose. And since that day, I've been Othercat on virtually every website. Of course, sometimes I have to use a variation like TheOtherCat or MsOtherCat because the name is already taken.

In the last 3 years I've been trying to create a presence on the web. I can guarantee I've signed up for at least 1000 sites. I sell on Ebay (admittedly, not much). I'm the author of 6 different blogs. I've written and published over 150 articles. And all this under the name Othercat.

So you would think Google would know who I am. But we all know how fickle Google is. Go ahead. Google me. Now do you see what I'm talking about? I'm buried on the second page while "Meet my other cat, Ozzie" and "My cat is scared of my other cat" take up a nice cushy residence on page 1.

That's prime real estate and I want it!

So listen up Google! I'm going to write all about me, the real Othercat, until you come to your senses and give me the recognition I deserve.
