Default Have you ever googled yourself?

Did you find anything intersting?

I googled myself a few weeks ago and I found the usual death notices from relatives. But then I found a werid website of these people in costumes. I got of there ASAP. I donít know what that site was. I donít want to know what it was.

I have an unusual last name so not much except my FB and my old myspace comes up when I google myself.

I am basically dead if the Internet gets to decide. You can't find me anywhere under my name. As it should be.

Yes, I google myself frequently; it's a security thing as there are only 2 pics of me online: one official that is job0-related, and the other my daughter took. I like things kept this way because I've had a stalker. Having a stalker is terrifying.

I've googled myself, and never been able to find myself on line. Apparently there was some woman with the same name as me who was big time involved in forming the Mormons, and dozens of references to her come up. I'm kind of happy that I'm not easily findable.

Have you ever googled yourself?



As some of you may know, my blog is currently off-line due to some problems at my previous site host. I'm working with my web master to rebuild and get back on-line.

Googling yourself is actually recommended as a way to watch for identity theft. It's good thing if you aren't finding anything.

Like Raindropvampire I have an unusual last name. I find stuff, but it's the same stuff every time. I also find lots of links to my husband's death because it was kind of a big deal locally.

It's a bit scary because I seem to be the only person online with my name. So when I google myself, it's all about me: pictures, articles, things like that. The first thing that comes up though is my LinkedIn profile, so that's good.

Default Re: Have you ever googled yourself?

I am variously an oceanographer in California, a violin teacher in another country and there are several of me in both Scotland and Ireland. There's the real me too because of the social media I use for work. I am a bit envious of the Oceanographer 'me'.

There was also a picture of me on Street View. It was quite funny I was on some steps on a rainy day and I was carrying a big leather bag in one hand and my open umbrella. I like vintage clothing and was wearing a high waisted ankle length skirt and a high neck blouse. The photo caught me when I was mid step and both my feet were off the ground. Somehow the perspective made it look like I was flying Mary Poppins style. My face was blurred but to anyone who knows me I was very recognisable.
