Yesterday I received a newsletter from Google and learned about a fun project called Your Google Stories:
Earlier this month we shared a handful of stories from people who have used Google in interesting ways that helped them solve a problem large or small. Their stories range from the mundane—finding the manufacturer of a frying pan, or the composer of a song—to the sublime: finding a long-lost love, welcoming a brand-new family member into the world.
This series reminded me of a couple of posts we wrote earlier this summer, titled Real World Idealists. In one, we shared a love story about a volunteer from Portland, Oregon who went to Brazil to volunteer for a couple of weeks, and ended up getting married to the founder of her host NGO!
With a big tip of the hat to Google, we thought we’d ask: do you have a story about how using our site helped you make a move, dream big, or solve a problem?
If so, please share it below in the comments. We might follow up with you and share it on our blog!
