So, I "googled" My Name

Not just my name, but all my nick names as well. (Sports Talk, Charlotte49er)

Something I do upon occasion, especially if I'm bored. See if anything embarrassing shows up.

Showed I still had a "My Space" page out there. DELETED!

A personal web-page under back when I was trying to land a job in sports talk radio. DELETED

Some very old posts I had made advertsing, back when I was in sales. My real estate site is still out there all over the place! It must have showed up 50 times!

The really freaky things was. Several posts I had made on here showed up as well! :o

Thank goodness it was all under the "Panther's", "Bobcats" or "The Lounge". Nothing from "Lovely Ladies" showed up.

If you are looking for a job, you might want to do this. Employers have been doing this for sometime, according to on-line articles. (Not that I'm looking for a job.)

This is why I have the random name BB and never use it anywhere else.

How would an employer know your message board handles?

Definitely. The worst culprits are the data mining sites that collect all your info. Some of these are the "find this person" kind of site. Hard as hell to get that stuff off there.

There's a site that I can't remember at the current moment. But it shows all your activity as far as social media and personal information. It's kinda weird to have all that information just out there for people to know. If I can remember the site I'll post it. You would put your email or just your name, it will show you EVERYTHING.

The sites name is Spokeo. It's eerie, you can find out a lot about a person in that site.

Tried to remove myself off that and it was difficult.
