After hours, random gloats [Mar. 8th, 2010|12:45 am]
Young Geoffrey

Googling your own name can be a very strange experience.

  • When did I create a FictionPress account?

  • What did I expect to achieve or gain through having it? And

  • How did I so completely forget having signed up with it?

  • Why doesn't HardCoreNerdity.com have a function that let's you know when something you posted made it to its front page? Small beans or no, I'd most likely have checked back between now and January if I'd been told.

  • Why and how is my bloody myspace page still holding the number 5 position for me showing up at all in the search results?

I think myspace always shows up in search results because it's such a huge site.

The other two? I got nothing.

Browser artifact?

I'm not doing anything; it must be some kind of browser artifact (though I have no idea how that could be).

Here's the code I used, with chevrons replaced by square brackets.

create a [a href="fictionpress.com" target="_blank"]FictionPress[/a] account

Oh. Wait. I forgot the "http://" - fixing now. *Young Geoffrey shuffles off, blushing*

Re: Browser artifact?

Must be something with my Mozilla.
