I have been using Google for a long time. Google and Yahoo are the two famous search engines. And I only used them to search for different things online or log in on my mail account and nothing else.
I think I am not the only one where I just type the google.com or just type what I want to search online and that’s it. Once I find what I’m looking for and I’m done. Or am I the only one? Hmm. Maybe I am the only one who doesn’t bother to check or update myself on why Google usually changes its logo style depending on the occasion.
But recently, I don’t know what’s gotten into me when I clicked the ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’.
And I found out about Google Doodles. It’s the first time I heard about it. It’s the first time I’ve gotten to know about it. I know. I know. I’m not that old not to know but I don’t give a care, or I don’t bother to be curious about it. I am not familiar with Google Doodles, in short. I thought that the ‘I’m feeling lucky’ is like the status of Google, like a status in Facebook. You know that ‘Feeling happy’ sort of or ‘Travelling to’ status or the ‘feeling angry’ status.
When I clicked it, that’s where I found out that the ‘I’m feeling lucky’ is not Google’s status but it’s an archive of events, history, holidays, or lives of famous people around the world.
According to Google, the ‘Doodles are the fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.’ Their team has created over 4000 doodles since 1998 and I just recently found out about it, two decades later.
Maybe because of the quarantine and the work-from-home situation that gave me a chance to understand the online world. I have social media. I usually spend hours just to be on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, or Twitter. But things like Google doodles, I don’t even bother to give my time on it. In the Doodles, they pay tributes to events or honor heroes of the past or celebrate anniversaries, people, and a lot of things. You can check it in Google Homepage.
There is a famous idiom proverb that says ‘Curiosity killed the cat’ but sometimes curiosity led us to learn and gain new knowledge. And that’s how I’ve gotten to know the Google Doodles.
