Google Alert (or how I know you’re talking about me behind my back)

1 min read

Whenever you start to develop a public persona, Google Alerts is great for searching for yourself, your work, and so on. That’s how I knew a story of mine was in a torrent, or when people comment on the inspirational quotation contest (remember – it ends Friday! Find a picture of a beach on Flickr if you have to!).

And then you find the link aggregators – where stuff gets jammed together in order to try to attract eyeballs for ad views. But damn, do they lead to some FUNNY alerts:
