Google & I

So I’ve been a bit MIA lately. I expect this to continue, too.

I am trying to step up my Cracked.com game, ever since my first article for them ran in May. So now I’ll be trying to get more articles published. Pitching and writing for Cracked is a time-consuming process, because of their tough editorial requirements.

This means I’ll probably cut down to about a post a week, possibly interspersed with a few “WTF reports” about stupid shit I find online.

Speaking of WTF – for reasons that I assure you have nothing to do with vanity or narcissism, I have looked myself up on Google. Using my real name, which is Daniel Gniazdo, as you may have learned previously.

The search results were innocent enough, but then I had the misfortune of clicking on Google Images.

Lo and behold, this:

Daniel Gniazdo Google

Hi there, I’m Daniel, I am a…good…communicator?

There goes my potential political career. And I was so close!

The good thing is that employers never use Google to check up on their employees, right? I should be safe.

Plus these things tend to disappear after a while. It’s not like everything we do online is forever or anything.

What’s that? It totally is forever? Thanks for nothing, Juan Enriquez!

On an unrelated note, I’ve made it even easier for all of you to get Nest Expressed goodness (or insert your own noun here) directly in your mailbox. You click here, fill out a one-item form…then good things happen to you.

What about you all? What does your Google search say about you? Can you beat me?

    Too afraid to Google myself. I will forever live in ignorance. Sorry, about your political career, you’ll have to stick with writing.

  2. You’ve just made me very relieved I never put up the 80’s photo of me with big hair and big red glasses. Blogging buds had encouraged me to do so, but just I couldn’t do it. And I never will now…

    By the way, were you the one who recommended Jussi Adler-Olsen’s books to me? A series of books based on detective Carl Morck that take place in Copenhagen? If so, thank you. I’ve started the first book in the series and really like it.

    • I do stupid stuff so that others can learn from the error of my ways. You are welcome!

      Wasn’t me who recommended the books, but now I’m intrigued myself, will try and check him out.

      Way to go with your ugly man shoes. They’re Google celebrities now!

  3. Love your Google profile! Wish I were so lucky to have such a declarative statement. (And no, I don’t plan on taking my pic giving the finger. I have my very unremarkable image to uphold.)
    Congratulations on your Cracked article. I think it’s a worthy goal to write for publication other than just on your fantastically funny blog.
    I’ve signed up for your new email list and will disembark from the WordPress list. But I’m still here!
    Write on!

    • Damn, and here I was hoping more people will join my middle-finger-waving picture on Google!

      Thanks, it was a dream come true to have just one article published, but now I want more!

      Looking forward to spamming you on a different channel than WordPress now!

    • Yeah dude I wrote a post about it a while back, when the Cracked article ran. Now let’s see if more can go out!

      And anyone can write for Cracked, as long as you’re willing to work and live-up to their rather strict requirements. You should definitely try!
