In a strange decision of boredom this afternoon, I decided to google myself. This all came about because a strange and fairly amusing thing happened this afternoon. I was in my editor in chief’s office when he received a package with some manuscripts. I noticed immediately, because I am snoopy, that it was from Richmond, VA, where I grew up. Then when Dale mentioned that the author wrote about recovery, I gasped and tried to grab for the package. The author that sent it–I interviewed her six years ago for the Baptist newspaper in Richmond. And now here we are being intersected again. Just wild.
So I was searching for the article online, but with no avail. So I googled my maiden name, and couldn’t find me at all. So then I googled my current, married name. And found some fun facts about “myself.” One person made pages on her public-school page for her friends.
But to my great amusement and awe, 3 out of the first 10 things that came up were actually me! I find that kind of bizarre considering I have a really normal first name (Jessica) and a pretty common last name. But if you google me you will immediately find both my Amazon profile and my Bookloons reviewer profile. I think the other entry also had to do with Amazon pages.
So your assignment for today is to google yourself and tell me what you find by commenting. How many pages before you find yourself?
PS: Inspired by others’ contest obsessions, and because I really want to win Pioneer Woman‘s photo contest today but I won’t because there are 3,000 entries, I will enter anyone who comments on this post by 2/1 at 3 p.m. CST into a drawing to win this Bible study, which has my name in it, because I was both the copy editor and the author of the leader guide. Look here for some other bloggy giveaways.
