For the longest time, I had two Google accounts. One of which was a GMail account I never used, the other was the one I used on a daily basis that was hooked into my regular e-mail account. This did toss me some curve balls when I wanted to use my handle for a Google service on my day-to-day Google account, as it reserved the name for my GMail account.
Then Google Wave came out, and I couldn’t pick my handle for my username. My response being: “Oh, for f*ck’s sake.”
So, this was the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back. I have moved all my settings over to my “GMail account” and wiped out my old account. Unfortunately, this means that if you followed me on one of Google’s services (like my Reader Feed) that just went up in a puff of electronic smoke. However, this allows me to give Google even MORE of my information and like an idiot, I have: I now have a publicly accessible Google Profile that has links to the various social services I use.
Also, I am starting to resume doing stuff on my Tumblr which is mostly my Google Reader feed and stuff that is too long to fit on Twitter.
Share and Enjoy!
