Have you ever googled your name by which you write on MyLot or other places? What happens? Are you surprised by anything that appears there? I was surprised to find that I have an article on expertscolumn with 25,000 views and another one with 18,000 views. Anybody still write there? Do they still pay?

@Corbin5 I have kept the same username for many years and made up a name that was unique and so I have no competition. I first started with happyangel but many have that name.

@1hopefulman I changed mine for every site. That method means a notebook full of user names for me.

It's interesting to see what our footprint is online and if anything appears that we don't want there we can try to get rid of it.

There are a lot of entries for LadyDuck and those are not sites related to me. My real name is also very common, a lot of stuff. It is more interesting entering the full name of my husband.

It's pretty much what I expect with my given name, though I haven't tried with my user name, hmmmm good point, maybe I should. Thanks for the idea

It's fun to see that many others have the same name. I even tried to contact some on Facebook to see if we were related but we were not.

I'm going to try that. When I search people look up all my relatives come up and what they know of my former addresses. If you keep looking you can find out anything on anybody for free. That's not always good, even if it's public records.

You are right, we can find out quite a lot of information on the net.

I have done it and it shows sites I belong to. Have you ever searched for other people who have your same name on Facebook? It amazed me that there is another woman on Facebook who has my exact same name.

I never heard of them. I am now showing up with the blogger, each new one I write but one site had all my stuff out there and I contacted them and told them to take it down! They did.

It was a popular place until they closed down. They really made us dream as they had big plans that never materialized but many made quite a bit of money there. Yes, some sites are very accommodating.

Never heard of them but maybe you can find a way to take credit for all those views - if they pay of course.

Many of the old-timers on MyLot were also there at one time. I've written to them but they don't respond.
