Can I still call this a "blog" in 2019?

Morning Beers In Ghana

Morning beers in Ghana

I was woken up by a text from a friend this morning:

“So I google image searched “morning beers” and you’re the fourth picture that showed up in the results”

When I first saw this text, I just assumed it was because of Google+, and that a logged-out Google search wouldn’t yield the same results. But I did a non personalized search and saw the same thing:

Google image search for morning beers

The image itself is from a Ghana trip that my friend Cortney and I took in 2007.

Morning beers in Osu, Ghana with Cortney

We were walking around in the Osu district of Accra, exploring and looking for a hotel. It was super hot out and we decided to stop by a food stand and grab a drink.

One second you’re enjoying an ice cold cruiser in Ghana’s Capital City, and the next, you’re showing up on Google Images. It’s a crazy world we’re living in.

To be a fair, “morning beers” is not a very competitive phrase. I’d imagine that the majority of people searching for morning beers are drunk, self-indulgent college students amused by the absurdity of the fact that they’re drunk before noon.
