I popped in a few minutes ago to see if I could find someone to ban (and sure enough...hunting in the wee hours is usually pretty satisfying) and noticed the google spider was doing a search on my profile. Given I'm not tired yet I started to wonder what that might mean so I googled my handle. Holy cow! Has anyone else ever done this? It came up with over 2000 returns (seems 99% of which were H&H posts and one cleaning company that added a .com to my name....the horrors, taking my name in vain) but one caught my attention. Get this... someone quoted one of my posts about bar soap in an article on the web. Why I almost feel famous (it isn't taking much to amuse me these days obviously).
The other thing it brought home was how easy it would be to get a lot of info by googling a handle. That was something I hadn't really worried too much about but now I'm wondering a bit but pretty glad I used a handle instead of my name.
Smoodgie, did you know there is a backpack by that name? I did not know that. I also tried Janetc and the returns are something like 19,000 although it took me to page 50 0r so before the H&H stuff started to show. Apparently there are a few people who pop up with that name.
