Happy Birthday to me!
Yes indeed I am another year older, another year wiser, and another year trying to decide to try to write more online. Some of you may find older posts I did about things you may or may not have known your computer and the internet can do. If you want more of that, please ask a few questions and I will find out some answers.
To get me started, I wanted to spoil the cake for anyone who hasn’t seen this yet and gotten a good chuckle. Google is wishing you a Happy Birthday based on your Google Profile!
So first off you need a Google account. If you use Gmail, Picasa, Youtube, Google Reader, etc; then you qualify.
Next, go to the Google’s Homepage and log into your account. If you are migrating from a third party service (like YouTube) and your account has not been fully integrated, then you may have some intermediary steps to resolve it.
Then, in the upper right corner, click on Settings and then click Google Account Settings.
Under the Profile section of your account, click on Edit Profile.
Finally, you can find the birthday listing (month and day only) under the Contact Info section of your profile. Not so intuitive that it would be under Contact Info, but they justify it by saying “So your friends and Google can wish you a happy birthday.”
Anyway, thank you very much for the birthday surprise Google!
