Ever Googled your user name?

I did and really didn't expect to get anything except maybe a link to GF. However I found out there is a grocery store chain with that name, a doctor and a web address that uses that name, a car dealership. None of which have anything to do with me.

How about you?

I got these links on the first page of Google.

The Ephemera Society which, in their own words, "is a non-profit body concerned with the collection, conservation, study and educational uses of handwritten and printed ephemera."

A page on eBay with a listing of printed ephemera for sale.

Another one with buttons, magnets and stickers for sale.

And the coolest one is a page of images. Just click on "Images for ephemera" when you do a Google search and you'll see what I mean.

Other than that, most of the links were to definitions of the word:

ephemera
noun
1. things that exist or are used or enjoyed for only a short time.
Yup, that pretty much sounds like me.

Wow, I never realized your user name meant anything. I thought it was a made up word, shows how much I know.

I never Googled a image for my name. Was almost afraid to look but I did and got a bunch of vehicles and shoes, two things I really like.

I Googled yours and saw a pretty Ephemera flower and lots of cards.

WOW! There is some guy that uses the same username as I do - of course he is not here on GF, but most of his stuff comes up when I Google danwiz. There is also somebody Max-Dan-Wiz who comes up - seems to be some kind of gamer's paradise or something.

If, however, I Google danwiz.com everything on the first page is me!! The 2nd page comes up with a lot of Max-Dan-Wiz references and one thing that says my site name is worth $56.

Yes, Hilander, it's interesting!

I never even knew of the word myself until I resolved to dream up a new username for myself. I flicked through a dictionary, and this was the fourth or fifth contender in a little list I made for myself. The meaning is what made me eventually choose this over the others.

Score! :D

There's a couple on that page. I liked this one best. It appeals to the artist in me. :)

It's really surprising what does and doesn't come up depending on your search criteria, isn't it. I tried "ephemera" and "forum", and I got nothing about me. It was all listings of other forums where the word ephemera crops up from time to time. Nothing more.
