Vanity Pays Off

Did you ever Google yourself and find out something you didn’t know? This happened to me today. I typed in my name and about five entries down, under the listings for the only other living American Nicole Clausing I’m aware of (she must be a relation, but it’s hard to believe I share genes with an athlete), was a link to the Christian Science Monitor’s Home Forum page. Turns out something I wrote for the 2004 Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference (it won a minor prize) was published on Friday. Who knew?

Fun fact: The Christian Science Monitor is distributed in 140 countries, meaning my name just went to about 120 places that the rest of me hasn’t gotten to yet.
