Deja Vu

    Have you ever had this happen to you?

    You are googling something or following a link from somewhere and you find this article or forum post that really grabs you and draws you in.  "Nice job!" you think and then you are startled when you realize that you wrote it.

    No, not plagiarized, you wrote it and your name is on it and you put it wherever it is and you just forgot about it.

    So then the question naturally comes up: is it really that good or does it just seem good because the writing resonates so well with your mind - why wouldn't you like your own writing style?

    I've been writing on the web for many years and this has happened to me a few times.  It's a very strange feeling to mentally congratulate yourself and then to wonder if you deserved it  :-)

    I've never had that happen, but many times I have researched a topic and later had several friends send me links to the same articles that I had read, less than two weeks before... and not because they knew I was researching that topic.
