So! This is an extension of the question we asked our beloved Author-friends last night on the tweeter: Do you have Google Alerts for yourself (or google yourself regularly)? If yes, do you find them useful? If you are neurotic, ahem, do you find they make you more or less neurotic? Has googling yourself brought you Unexpected Opportunity? Serendipitous Connection? Are you self-published, traditionally published, or not yet published (but obviously you will be published VERY SOON because only CLEVER AND TALENTED persons read OUR blog)? If you do not google/have Google Alerts, why not? WE ARE SO CURIOUS. DO TELL. Goodness, is that a new outfit? You look so FOXY today.
