What comes up when you google your name?

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
If I put in Allie with my last name, I get my school's website and the Chicago Flute Club website, on which I am a board member. I also get an obituary for someone who shared my first and last names that died at 88 in January, 2003. As far I am aware, this is not a relative.

If I put in Allison (it's what Allie is short for, after all) with my last name...well, apparently I have my own house in North Carolina that's the oldest standing frame house west of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If I showed up with my driver license, do you think they'd give me a free tour and take my picture??

So what do you get when you google yourself?

With my married name, someone who is very big in horse breeding.

With my maiden name, someone who is a Christian songwriter/performer.

Neither reflect my tastes.

I have an odd last name and actually had only 16 hits. 5 of them were actually me. 2 were about things my husband submitted to environmental organizations he belongs to and signed both of our names. 1 was about testimony I submitted to the state Minnesota related to my job. The last 2 were drink recipes I submitted to webtender.com.

Pretty weird.

Man, there are no other people with my name, other than the lady who passed away. This leaves me the lone wolf of my name

FH has 2 pages that are all actually him. He has kind of an unusual last name, though.

My friend Cheryl is herself, an environmentalist, a person from Vancouver and a ob-gyn, just on the first page.
