2014 Doodle4Google - Looking at back at 2013
What is a Google Doodle? Where is it found, and what it has to do with you?
The daily artwork displays updates made to the Google dot com Homepage every day are Google Doodles.
This idea was inspired in 1998 when the second O in Google was made into The Burning Man. Unlike most companies who keep the same Logo, the same for 20, 50 or 100 years.
Google would break another mold. In 2000, and an intern (now a webmaster), Dennis Hwang created a Logo for Bastille Day. The founders were so pleased with the results, that Dennis was appointed Doodle Master. At first, the Google Logo was changed to correspond to mainly popular holidays and events.
Today, the Logo changes almost daily to correspond world events, memorials, weather, and happenings. These are called Google Doodles.
For Google users and fans, it is fun to open up the Google window each day, and see a different Google Doodle featured.Some are interactive, and some are games.
Now, we will be on the look-out for the Doodle 4 Google contests seeking student participants.
Doodle for Google, honors Les Paul
Doodle for Google leaves interactive guitar up for days
The Les Paul, Interactive Doodle 4 Google, the week of June 9, 2011 is a Doodle 4 Google Interactive guitar. This Doodle is in honor of Les Paul. Celebrities, like Lady Gaga, along with over 10,000,000 others playing Interactive Guitar, have been such a big hit, it was left up an additional day! Fun.
In defense of Doodle 4 Google's request to Children for Social Security numbers for participants in the Doodle4Google
It is amazing when some organization, group or company does philanthropic work, they are bombarded, criticized, and jumped on without any real investigation. What? Is doing good works considered bad?
- It is tax law that any person who can win $15,000.00 be willing to abide by US Tax Law.
- That would necessitate a Social Security number. Even if they are a minor.
- Any contest that pays out over $5,000.00 must withhold 28%, and they need a taxpayer ID number.
- To enter this possible $15,000.00 prize, a contestant, even a minor must submit a Tax ID. It is not shocking or exclusive to Google.
We may be mad at Google for something else, but let's not merge the two issues. Doodle 4 Google is a unique and cool program that needs to grow and be recognized for its ingenuity.

Google Labs and other Google platforms, are valuable tools...
Google.com is the search engine that I use. I have been "Googling" for research for over 5 years, I am an effective Google user. Easily entertained, a researcher, and ever curious, the changing Google Doodles have kept me guessing for a long time.
Before I started a Google.com e-mail account, I dabbled with a few of the Google Lab products, and then an acquaintance turned me on to Google Documents (Google Documents which has been changed to Google Drive). I found out I could create Spreadsheets, forms, Documents, and Power Point Presentations, with a G-mail account, using Google Drive.
There are also bonuses to using G-mail, namely that there is unlimited storage, free Information and Long Distance Information, and Google Call.
When I started my first Blog Spot Blog in 2006, and signed up for Ad Sense. I found so much information and help from the Google Forums, staff and on-line personnel who are invested in the Google Community, and are happy and willing to help.
This means for anyone who is willing to learn, and can find some adventure and fun, can become a small part in growing Google. A Village venture. Google Labs, and other Google Platforms, Videos, and Webinars are valuable tools for the on-line writer/publisher.
Just like this Doodle 4 Google Contest, this is fun, and offers opportunities for school age kids to express themselves, and be an instrumental part of the village as well. Thank you Google, for all you do.
