Follow Me if You Can

One of these days I really am going to have to keep track of my trail through the Internet. It used to be easier before tabbed browsing - I'd just keep hitting the back arrow to see where I came from and how I got where I am. However, I love tabbed browsing, and I wouldn't trade that for anything. Now, when I see something I want to check out, I open it in a new tab so I don't lose the page I'm already on. Sometimes I have 15 or more tabs open. Right now I only have 12. So, sometimes, when I find an interesting page, I can't remember how I got there - mostly because the tab has been open for hours before I find the time to look at it.

Here's a really small example of that trail through the Internet I'd like to trace: the other day I was reading Part 4 of Deb's series on RSS and Feedburner. In that post, she mentioned a post on Absolutely Bananas, which I read. Then I started looking around there, and found this: spell with Flickr pictures. So, of course, I had to try it. For this post, I just spelled my name,

Bead Letter A cast N N A

but I spelled out "Beth & Cory's Mom" when I first found this, and if you scroll to the bottom of the page, you'll see it. How cool is that? It's really fun. Go ahead. You know you want to try it.

  1. I'm just the same, have so many tabs open that FF sometimes gets so slow I have to close some and re-start!

    I might have a go at the spell with Flickr!
