Ever google people? Sure you do. So you know that it’s always fun to see what the first link is that pops up.
If you’re lucky you’re googling your old high school boyfriend and the first link that comes up is “Dave shows Vegas his Dong”
If this happens, grab a margarita and give me a call.
But who’s googling you? And why?
I get that most “online” people get googled to some extent.
Maybe someone would google “The Next Martha” and see a bunch of links of predictions from Stewart Smalley to Zoe from Sesame Street.
I know I’m always offended. #Stomp
But I want to know WHO THE HELL IS GOOGLING MY NAME?!
Oh, you didn’t know that it’s NOT Martha?
Surprise! (Throws glitter in the air)
So here is my first guest poster with a little story. She’s sassy and snarky and if I met her in person, I’d bring #WineJen out to play. She’s just the kind of woman you want to hang with. She also calls herself a non-blogger too. She is @FamilySizedFun on twitter and her blog is Family Sized Fun.
Oh, I should also mention that she gave me this MONTHS ago.
What? You know how I half ass everything.
Follow her please? I suck.
I mean, you DO, don’t you? I do it all the time.
Look, no Mom in her right mind would be neglecting her toddlers as they put the finishing touches on the last details of utter destruction of every last shred of her hard work from yesterday just to GOOGLE themselves, would they?
I may even be doing it right now.
I mean, chances are, someone, somewhere will be googling you if you don’t do it first, and maybe you should know what is OUT THERE when they do.
I mean, someone out there is googling someone EVERY MINUTE, hell, thousands of people are googling even more thousands of people…I am sure you get my point.
It’s just, when someone out there googles “Jen Hajer” you’d think they would be directed HERE, to her official web presence, but no, the first place she pops up is on my blog, Family Sized Fun. Did I mention I have a blog? Or a few blogs as it may be considered. Yeah, I’d have to tell you, because my blogs get no traffic. But the traffic I do get? It’s all about Jen.
In fact, since the 1 time in June when she guest posted over at Family Sized Fun, “Jen Hajer” has been the #1 search term typed into google to get to my blog. Weird, hunh? Because when I google myself? The 2 pages of Karmen Van Derven lead no where near it.
So,whoever out there on the internets, that has been looking for Jen, but has been sadly directed to either Family Sized Fun, or the doucher with the Empty Subaru Blog instead, I present you this post in hopes that you got whatever it is that you googled her for.
And remember to Google responsibly. I mean really when you think about it, everyone you may be googling has googled other people, so, in effect, you are googling those people by association.
Tune in next time, when I talk about twittering yourself. Because I end up doing a lot of that, too.
If you add it to your bio, it would not only be the most bad-ass thing I ever knew of, but I’d possibly buy the book.

I google myself all the time and I usually fill the first 3 pages of results (but only when I use my middle initial).
ok. I just googled myself. Everything on the first page was me except one lame ass on myspace. The rest was all either Sluiter Nation, guest posts I've done, or my profiles on things like BlogHer or Mom Central.
I can never decide if I want to be googlable or not. If you google my legal hyphenated name you find a bunch of stuff that I have liked on facebook. If you google my full maiden name you get a much cooler version of my name who went to Harvard.
I hope I follow her. She is so fun.
And, I'm sadly with you, with the half ass everything.
Lately, it's been barely ass everything, for me.
I love funny, and this indeed funny shit!!!
There is an author of cheezy sci-fi crappola who has the NERVE, the unmitigated GALL to be named Adrienne Jones. You have to scroll through several pages of entries about her before you ever find me.
I cry foul.
Cheesy scifi crappola huh? Well I'll have to add that to my author bio, thanks a bunch.
I googled myself and a creepy astrologist/witch doctor lady came up. But I google everyone. Because I'm a freak like that.
And if you'll excuse me, I have some googling to do.
I *love* Google… you know those posts where A-list bloggers are like "oh, someone googled 'squirrel pajamas' to get to my blog, isn't that funny?" Never going to be me. You know what people Google to get to my blog? "cole emmett blog" BORING!
And Mommy was great on Google with her *maiden* name – The first ten or twelve matches were actually HER. Her married name, however, must be more common because NONE of those matches are her…
"And remember to Google responsibly. I mean really when you think about it, everyone you may be googling has googled other people, so, in effect, you are googling those people by association."
Best. Paragraph. Ever.
It's funny…I google all the time, I mean ALL THE TIME and I have never, NEVER googles my own name. Holy shit. I'm off to do that RFN!
