    Anyone ever google themselves? Well, I googled myself the other day, and BDW was the 3rd thing on the list. At first I was all "how funny is that... I can't believe I post enough to have this show up!" Then, slowly, it occured to me that ANYONE who googles me will see my posts... including all my vents! I started visualizing my FMIL sitting at her computer reading through my posts ... needless to say, I began sweating profusely! Obviously I don't think she is sitting around googling me, but you never know!

              I had the same problem! My mom uses AOL and for some reason whenever she typed the wedding website address it did a search that linked pulled up my forum posts (when I had the link in my siggy.) I worried about the vents so decided to remove it.

                I never really thought about that. I googled mine and yup it all comes up haha oh well if I'm that important to anyone for them to have to google me I guess they will get to read all. I should probably stop using my first inital and last name as my user name for almost everything.
