I did. Nothing interesting came up but my LinkedIn account, clock repair work, and one comment that I posted on a language website. I looked myself up when I was applying for work to make sure there was nothing questionable.

yes.

and amusingly, came across a review I wrote on a site as a kid (which I hoped to forget)

apart from the fact that spelling in it looked like someone was just bashing the keys at random, I used the word like, so many times

like, omg

I googled myself and found a picture of Blake Lively. We were meant to be. But alas, not.

Yes, but I only find European people with the same name as me, and far more interesting lives, I'm sure. And as jimi said, that's as it should be. I'm comfortable with lots of privacy.

There is several with my name on white pages and a flower with our names but no one has much of a presence. No pictures of any of us. If I had FB I might see that someone had FB page but not me.

Unfortunately yes. There was a profile name I used everywhere back in the early days of the internet and a Google of that name brings up a rather embarrassing history. Egads! I am not proud of some of my actions many which have accompanying pictures of those days of old. Thank God I kept my profile to myself and unless people have inadvertently stumbled across them by accident I should be safe from embarrassment. It all could be worse. Thank goodness I have never engaged in or posted inappropriate activities. And, much of what comes up dates back to the early 90s. More recently when I Google the profile name I use here it links directly to my psychcentral activity. Ugh. Again, at least this is not a profile I have let people in my life know I use.
