A NickCentric lifestyle is not an
easy thing to come by. First off, you need a Pearl to suggest one
to you. That's what happened. As I mentioned elsewhere on this site,
my friend Pearl (aka the girl
I want to marry) suggested in one of our many conversations that
I do a series of photoshop images to the tune of NickCentric, a
term/phrase that I hadn't thought of myself. Pearl
has always enjoyed my "Bonsai Life"
series and wanted me to do something else, and, well... this seemed
perfect. But here entered the problem - How does one visually describe
eccentricity? I mean, I consider myself to be pretty eccentric,
as do many people I know. But in all actuality, eccentricity is
a relative term. "Bonsai" which loosely equates to "small"
is more or less small to everyone. But what I do that I think is
eccentric might be run-of-the-mill, or even boring to someone else.
And it's those "someone elses" that matter, because they
will be the ones looking at the artwork and deciding it's relevance.
However - for a while now, I have been very much wanting to stroke
my ego a little and prove something to myself and the world. It's
also a challenge that I have given myself. That challenge is to
become the most readily found "Nick" in the search engines.
Not just "Nick Steglich", cuz, well... that brings up
about 3 pages/30 listings of websites about me. Nope, I want to
be the most well known (as far as the internet is concerned) Nick
that has ever been. Competition is fierce with people like Nick
Lachey, Nick Nolte, Nick Drake, Nick Cave and of course the television
station/product line from Nickelodeon and Nick-at-Nite. There are
also some other, less well-known Nicks out there that have blogs
and stuff like that. In all, I don't even come close to where I
want to be. I have a whole bunch of sites out there, and though
those are great and a big help, especially seeings as my sites like
really help to boost my rankings, nothing I have made yet has been
a site that is totally dedicated to me. And by me, I mean the REAL
Nick. The Nick with emotions and desires, passions and things to
share with the world. I have www.NickSteglich.com
as a couple of my repository and resume sites that, well... are
great and all, but those sites are designed for specific purposes,
and nothing else. So this is my chance.
On top of all of that, I figured that an attempt to become the
world's most findable "Nick" is probably about the most
eccentric I can be. I mean... That's kind of egotistical even. But
truthfully, it's less about the ego-stroking and considerably more
about the challenge of it. So this website has kind of become my
artistic approach to what I see as NickCentric. Should the Photoshop
series fail, I will always have this site as a means to express
my NickCentricity. I'm sure that this isn't exactly what Pearl
had in mind, but, well... this is what it became, so let's see what
we can do with it...
So how does one measure their NickCentricity? Well, first we take
a look at the other "Nicks" out there on the web. Here
are the top 25 "Nick" links CURRENTLY on Google:
