Yet another post in my “draft blog post cleanup” series. Here is #19 from September 2011:
I am sure many others out there who blog have gotten this kind of message:
We at Onlinephdprograms.com recently came across your blog and were excited to share with you an article “15 Fictional Professors We Wish Were Real” was recently published on our blog and we hoped that you would be interested in featuring or mentioning it in one of your posts.
Either way, I hope you continue putting out great content through your blog. It has been a sincere pleasure to read.
Thanks for your time,
I assume that these posts that are written for this, and various other sites, are all about driving up Google Search ranking somehow. So I normally avoid writing about them. But I thought I would in this case because, well, their post annoyed me because of the 15 functional professors they wrote about, only one is female. Really, that is the best they could do? In three minutes of web surfing (e.g., browsing this site and this one) I have come up with a list of fictional female professors who certainly could have been included in their list. And many are much more interesting than some they wrote about. Here are some examples:
- Eleanor Arroway – Jodie Foster’s character in Contact
- Susan Calvin – character in Isaac Asimov’s I Robot series
