I have had the same e-mail account for years. A few months ago my wife noticed that my blogging name Something Happened Somewhere Turning was coming across on all my e-mail messages. That it is my blog post name. I like that name. FOR BLOGGING! I mean if I e-mail a friend of mine and they are seeing the title Something Happened Somewhere Turning instead of my name then they will either delete it thinking they are being spammed or their account will spam it automatically.
Well the other day I set up a Gmail account because I wanted to have some mail sent to a different address other than my regular account so that I could keep track of it easy enough. I then thought that I could also use it for blog corresponding and it would be a nice way to keep everything in a neat little package and maybe the ghost in the machine would take over my Gmail account and recognize me as Something Happened Somewhere Turning over there. So I changed my e-mail on my blog pages to Gmail and I figured now I'll just sit back and watch to see what happens.
So this morning while I was leaving a comment on somebody's blog (I hadn't logged in yet). I was typing in my regular e-mail address -- the one I used to open up my blog account -- and I received an error message that said I needed to login using my Comcast address or my Gmail account before I could continue.
Dude -- That's Exactly What I Was Doing!
