Google Knows Me

If you have a Google Profile and you’re signed into your account, try doing a Google search for the word “me.”

Your profile shows up as the first result! How freakin cool (and stalkerish) is that?

Some people would never share their full name on their blog. I no longer have any qualms about it. I have been blogging since 2001. I blog for a website that gets more than 6 million hits a month. I get recognized on the streets…heck I’ve even gotten recognized the last time I was on the west coast. And just earlier this week, I was telling a friend how the funniest comments I’ve ever gotten from a stranger has to be, “Hey I know you, I’ve seen you on my friend’s Facebook!”

So as demonstrated in this post, my online life is out there for the world to see. If you really wanted to find out my full name, where I live, who I really am, etc, I doubt you will have much trouble.

Why not just embrace it and make some new friends along the way?

    I don’t put my name out there really intentionally (partly because it might give my Grandma a heart attack if I was overly overt about such things), but I use my first name, and my mom uses her last name (which is still my last name even though I’m married) for her business name, so any intelligent person can probably figure out that my name is Jenna Andersen, which I am perfectly okay with.

    There are way too many people online now for anyone to care enough to stalk little old me 🙂

    My sentiments exactly! I don’t think any stranger would care enough to stalk me (and you have many more fans than I ever will 😉 ).
