Melanie Jacobson is ruining my life.

Posted by Melanie Bennett at 9:22 PM
Melanie Jacobson is getting on my last nerve.

SHE'S RUINING EVERYTHING.

Or at least, she's ruining dot com for me.

Some time, long ago, before I was even Melanie Jacobson, she went and registered MelanieJacobson.com for herself. And you know what she does with it?

NOTHING.

I want it. I want DOT COM. I have dot net. Whatever. It's fine.

And as my husband points out every time I whine about this (and it comes up more than it should), I am WINNING GOOGLE. I, me, myself, moi, get the top seven search returns.

So that's something.

A big something, even.

But I tried to buy this melaniejacobson.com from her, this domain that she's not even using, and she was open to sell, but not for as much as I was offering. Which was only enough to buy a nice pair of shoes. I think she was thinking more along the lines of mortgage payment money. But I am simply not worth that much.

But still! She could have had new shoes and I could have my domain all to myself. She already has the good gmail address. And the good Twitter handle.

Although I got to the Melanie Jacobson Facebook domain first.

Oh, and did I mention I'm winning Google?

Because I TOTALLY AM.

Take that, Melanie Jacobson. TAKE THAT.

(And I dearly, dearly hope she has a Google Alert for our name. Nothing could make me happier right this second.)

Yay! A writing blog! Woot! :D FYI the follower button isn't working today on blogger, but I'll put you on my sidebar and follow you when the stupid button starts working again.
Darn you BLOGGER! Always messing things up!

I want to follow, really I do. But the button just isn't there. So. I will add you to my reader and check back for the follow button so that YOU can see my face in that little box over there. Deal?

No button!

You should really get your slacker husband to add a "follow" button.

Trying again. This is fun. Let's blog about writing, shall we?

I had a wily company steal Sariah S. Wilson (please don't go check, I don't want them getting any hits). I also lusted after Sariah.com, which has been doing nothing for many, many years now. I understand it. :)

Way to go, winning Google! Maybe you'll score on Google+, too!

Yay for your write-y blog! Boo to the inferior Melanie Jacobson. You shouldn't let on that you're a published author, though, because she'll probably want more money.

I'm following, even though you didn't mention me by name on your 'other' blog despite the fact I drove 1,274,573 miles to come to your book launch. Whatever. I'm totally not sulking. At all.

YAY!! I've tried to comment on this post a MILLION times!
Okay.
Not a million.
But LOTS.

SO happy. Also, this blog is all sorts of happy colors, and cute graphics, and writing hilarity :D

What a happy, happy place you've made.

Curse that melanie jacobsen. She's a pain ;O

This post seriously cracks me up ... I need to go see if anybody has my name .... nah! Although I did google my husband - and he is a porn star in another life - YUCK! I wonder how his department at the university would feel about that one?!
