NaBloPoMo -30 Posts In 30 Days – It’s Over!

Well it’s over! And I did it! I successfully wrote 30 posts in 30 days in November for NaBloPoMo! It was really very easy. I think I may have hit a writer’s block maybe twice during the entire month. All the memes and tagging also helped! But it is finally over and some of the posts were actually quite good!
Now does this mean I will not be posting as much anymore…uumm, I don’t know. We will just have to wait and see, now won’t we?!?
Well anyway CONGRATS to me for completing this task, and CONGRATS to you all for reading it!!

What Happens When You Google Your Name?

I was over at Gill’s and read her post on Googling your own name. So I had to come back here and tell you about it. Yes I googled my name and this is what I found:
I popped up 4 times… once when I won a Smokie Norful DVD; once when I sent in a testimonial for a marketing company; and twice my name was mentioned in the annual report for my job(the report is on line).
But then I found:

  1. A Regina S***** who is a Art Teacher in Branson Missouri.
  2. A Regina S***** who won 4th place in Springfield MO at a Hobby Craft Fair for a dried flower arrangement
  3. A Regina S***** in Tucson AZ. who signed a petition in protest against the Senate vote to allow illegal immigrants access to Social Security Benefits.

I don’t know about you but I find this very weird! Thanks Gill for suggesting this!

I was then over at AJ’s and read some disturbing news. If you type a phone number into the Google search engine and then hit enter, your name and address pop up along with a map to your home! Now that is very frightening!

Wow, technology what would we do without it…
