Googled my name

I look it up from time to time....just to see how much the world can find out about me from just my name. I am happy to report that my name is uncommon enough that approximately 20% of the hits are about me. The other 80% are other women---who write poetry (middle initial L), breed bulldogs, run for office and loose, go to court, and work hard at researching their family's geneaology. I found my mother's telephone number online in an old post to a whitewater club's site, and asked them to remove her number from the web. I found my amazon wish list. I wish somebody would buy me things from that list.

I'm actually not fond of the idea of being found by my name. There are some people I'd prefer not be able to find me. My name does show up on LinkedIn, but it is among several so there would be no way of knowing you were seeing me unless you already new enough about me to find me anyway.

Fortunately there is an AP writer and some fellow who is a credited Hollywood production accountant who show up in search engines way more than me.

It's not easy for the casual surfer to sort out which link is which person....so I don't feel too exposed even with 20% coverage by my name.

Oh I don't put my name on LJ, that's for sure. It's kind of fun to have a semi-anonymous presence here---where I can say what I really think without anybody showing up on my doorstep mad about it. =-]

My name gets a lot of hits and is so unique, they're all me. I check from time to time and am OK with the results. A lot of professional organizations, my ceramics website, etc.
