Writer's Block: Google Me

Have you ever Googled your own name? How do you feel about the results?

Okay, I can't resist answering this. I google myself relatively frequently. It's always fun to see where I show up.Especially after publishing the book, I noticed that I show up a lot, and it's also interesting to see which emails got forwarded where.

As an asside, I tend to trust writing something on the blog, where I have more control of the text than something over email. I've had one too many things taken wildly out of context through email. Blogging means that unless someone violates my text, you have to come to me and read it, and I can then read comments about the post. With blogging, I am also more likely to write like it's public,but with email, the assumption (which is obviously not always accurate) is that it's private.
