I really love Googling myself. This is not to be confused with ogling oneself, which is so popular with the bulging muscle-bound guys I see at the gym kissing their own biceps in the mirror.
Doing this (Googling, not ogling), which actually means searching for your own name at Google.com, will give you a good sense of how others see you. Googling yourself might even prompt you to be more careful with your appearance on the Internet. I still see my name on things I posted to Usenet Newsgroups back in the mid 90's. My name is not easily confused with other people, either.
Googling myself is how I found the AML review I wrote awhile back in which I referenced The Work and the Glory series as The Hope and the Glory series and which has been copied to a few different places over the past couple of years (including the BYU Mormon Literature Database), and where it's not copied, there are links to it. Oh boy. I guess that tells people I've never read some of the best-selling books in the LDS marketplace. I tried once. I didn't get very far.
Anyway, I have to go. I'm going to try reading The Hope and the Glory again and then I need to check the mirror to see if my biceps are any bigger. If the reading fails, I guess I can at least heft all nine hardbound volumes to work on the biceps.
