John Jr’s Dream Blog Featured On Bing News (MSN News | Cortana News)

Today on my post called Someone Is Murdering Martial Arts Masters I had a comment from Wendigo Runner (@WendigoRunner):

https://johnjronline.wordpress.com/2016/12/15/someone-is-murdering-martial-arts-masters/comment-page-1/#comment-10614 :

Well that’s cute.

Just FYI, this showed up in my Cortana news feed which I have following “Martial Arts”, in addition to some other keywords.

All it has is the title and the image.

After reading Wendigo Runner’s comment I decided to check this myself by looking up the Martial Arts Interest | Topic in the Microsoft MSN News (News) App on Windows 10, and what Wendigo Runner said was true.

My dream post was showing up on the first page of the featured news stories in the MSN News (News) App below a Fox News article which you can see in the image above at the top of this post, and through the news feed in the Cortana app according to Wendigo Runner.

My post is also currently showing up on the first page of Bing News if you search for the term Martial Arts:

This is crazy and interesting and funny and slightly disturbing, I guess Microsoft’s algorithm goofed | messed up on this one (well my first dream in that post was about martial arts, but it was only a dream and not a news article), but at least I get some free publicity and an interesting story to tell.😀

Hopefully most people reading that dream post will realize that those were just dreams that I had when I was sleep, and that none of that happened in the real world.

When I type my dreams I have them categorized as dreams and I try to add at least one dream related tag when possible, and I try to make it clear that they are dreams in the posts themselves by labeling them as dreams and saying that they are dreams in the first sentence of each dream in each post when possible so that people will not think that these are real events.

I used to also title my posts to make it clear that they are dreams, but I recently stopped doing that because it made my titles too long and strange-looking and it seemed to keep most readers away.

I also hope that people do not think that my blog is a fake news website because it is not, and I noticed that on Web Of Trust (WOT | MyWOT | WOT Services) some people were giving my blog negative ratings (rating my blog as scam, misleading claims, unethical, et cetera) like they did not realize that most of my posts are dreams and they mistakenly assume that I mostly talk about real life events so they falsely assume that my blog is mostly lies not realizing that most of my posts are dreams:

Even the name | title of my blog is currently John Jr’s Dream Blog and my blog tagline is currently Dreams In The Time Of Sleep and even my About Page makes this clear, and so I am not sure why some people still do not realize that most of my posts are dreams.

I would like to thank Wendigo Runner (@WendigoRunner) for letting me know about this, I would not have known about this otherwise. 🙂

The end,
