My brother likes to tease me about how he can type my name in to Google and get so many search results. He also sometimes likes to refer to me as "HREF HREF," but that is a story for another time.

I did a little narcissistic investigation tonight, and noticed that I have started to make quite a name for myself...literally. This wasn't the case several months ago, but you can now do a Google search for my last name and find a link to my blog on the first page of results (you won't have as much luck if you Americanize it). In addition, Googling my first name will get you to my site by the second page of results.

I suppose I should put things in perspective though. If you've got a name like John Smith and end up on the first or second page of results, you deserve a big pat on the back. If you've got a name like Bernie Zimmermann, though, you've probably still got some work to do. Rest assured I intend to do it.

One of the funnier things noted in all of this, however, is that a Google Image search for my name returns quite an interesting set of results. In fact, it's quite a revealing look into the bizarreness that is being me.
