So … the other night I got a message from Google that I’m eligible for a custom URL in Google Plus. Fine! I’ve been intrigued by that … why they didn’t have that from the get-go.
I headed over there right away, to claim my «custom URL», but what do you know?! They had already decided for me what my URL should be. Both suggestions were long mix-ups of my real name and my nickname [quackofdawn]. This peed me off to no end, but there was this option to ‘apply’ for something else.
I do not want my real name all over the web … I wanted quackofdawn, so I have applied for that. It’s still under review. If I don’t get it I will leave Google altogether. Imagine how sad and upset they will be when I do that!!! 😀
Somehow I’ve also ended up with a Google+ PAGE there also. I don’t know what the deal is with that — not enough proficient in G+ yet. I don’t remember creating it myself.
