At first, I thought I would give this name challenge a miss. I simply could not think of any where - nor any way - to find an image with my name.
Then I saw the submission from Jeff Boucher who shot his name on the cover of a book that he had authored.
And I saw the submission of Tatiana Watsonwho is named after a brand of cigars... oops! I mean, who has a brand of cigars named after her.
And, oh yes, Hector Ortiz who showed how much effort one might put in to create something.
They got me thinking. Hmmmm....
Okay, I thought. I would "break the rules" and shoot my last name instead of my first. There is one Seah Street in Singapore, next to the famed Raffles Hotel. I could tell a story about it not being my grandfather's road.
Then... Bingo! I had a better, more convenient Idea that does not even need me to go anywhere. I would Google myself.
You see, I am quite a "net citizen". I own five websites and a blog. I am also quite a vocal person, writing often enough to the Forum pages of the local newspapers. Those go on the net too.
I had done this before. A few times I Googled my name just to see what happens and found, not just my own articles, but interesting things written about me - like the one that calls me Cowboy Celeb. There were times, too, I found nasty things written about me. Oh well.
And so I Googled myself again tonight to see what surprises were in store.
LOL! Two or my recent JPG submissions are right there, among the first "1-10 of about 41,200" results found.
Now how does JPG get itself so high up the Google search rankings?
And if I may say so myself, this submission is pretty cool, isn't it?
