I Googled Myself for Strawberry Singh!

Strawberry Singh's meme/challenge for this week is a mash-up of questions she wrote and questions from the new-to-me and very entertaining blog called SLTimeWellWasted. My title for this blog is what the meme is about - Googling ourselves and seeing what happens. You know what? I'm old enough that "googling myself" still sounds vaguely naughty. ;-p

Meme instructions: Google your SL name and answer the following questions. Don’t forget to leave a comment [on Berry's post] with a link to your post so we can all drop by, read and be nosy. Optional: click over to Emily’s blog and do her Google challenge as well. Don’t forget to leave a comment in her post if you end up doing it, so she can come stalk you guys too!

Here are Berry's questions:
  1. Google your Second Life name in “quotations” and share your results. About 10,100 results
  2. What is the first link that comes up? My blog.
  3. Which link were you surprised to see? Apparently I was the victim of a vampire in 2008. Funny, I never felt a thing! 
  4. Click on the “Image” tab and tell us where the first 5 pictures listed are from. The first two pictures are my photos on Google+. The third and fourth pictures are from other blogs that mention me, and the fifth is a RL Dolly Baroque dress! 
  5. Click on the “more” tab and then click “news” and share your results. Dolly's just not newsworthy, I guess.
Here are Emily's questions about comparing our SL and RL digital footprints:
  1. How did the two digital footprints compare, and did that surprise you? Dolly is much more popular on the web than the real life me and that's just fine by me! I used to be a corporate spokesperson and most of my real life entries are just quotes in articles about boring business stuff.
  2. Does anyone interesting share your name? Not my real name or my SL name either. I guess both of my names are rather uncommon.
  3. Are you happy with the size of your digital footprint, or do you wish either one was larger/smaller? Oh I'm fine with the footprint I have in both worlds.
  4. If you woke up/ logged in one morning to discover over night you had suddenly gained rock-star status, and everybody knew who you were and wanted to know what you were doing… what would you do? Hey, talking about shareholder meetings and quarterly earnings isn't rock star stuff? Dolly would be a much better rock star and she would love it for the first ten minutes. The other five minutes of fame would just be a pain.
Finally, back to our regularly scheduled program, PXL Creations has a specialty skin for its VIP group. A new version of the gorgeous skin called Jade in Halloween makeup inspired me to dye my hair to look like a very pretty witch.
