Have you Googled Yourself Lately?
If you would like to start your morning off with a jolt, try typing your full name into the Google search bar. After that, type your phone number in as well (include the area code and dashes). Unless you have kept up a very high level of privacy, you may get back pages and pages of links with your information as the star of the show. I did this a couple of days ago and was surprised how many pages of results featured *me*. There were links to meetings I had attended years ago, conferences I had very minor parts in, a bio clip that I could not even remember writing and a link to another person with the same name. The electronic trail on a single, very unknown person can be surprisingly comprehensive.
