That’s one reason why I have never used my name on here.  Yes, if someone found my account and looked at the pictures, they would know it was me but I wouldn’t want someone googling my name to find this account.

if i do a google for ejs4y8, weddingbee, travelocity, etc come up. Then you can pretty much find my maiden name out from the college pages

I just googled my username and it only reveals my posts on the WeddingBee so no overlap here! 🙂

I realized my mistake soon after joining:(  I use this screenname for just about everything.  I meant to log into one of my email accounts, but instead typed the name into the search bar – next thing I knew I was presented with every weddingbee threat I’d started.  Wedding trumps pretty much any other site I use apparently!

My mistake also brought to light that fact that my photobucket acct was public which I QUICKLY changed!!

yes, I had a problem with this too, just like twalila, too late I realized it after I already used my name….now I have to be careful what I post

I did a search for my screen name and it turns out it is the name for a christening-ware company! And some girl has a facebook/myspace with that first name. Well, at least my personal info isn’t out there for everybody! Oh, it did pull up my weddingbee acct, but that’s okay.  🙂

I am safe b/c I created my username specifically for this site. I have posted pictures of myself in different threads but unless you get to one of those posts via google by accident you will never be able to connect “Jamaicabride” to my real life. Also…apparently there is another Jamaicabride….maybe several on other online communities =)

Nothing comes up for me with my name on here, or my real name. so no probs here!

@Rosie…I googled your username and your weddingbee stuff was on the first page of hits. It’s definitely there.

I’ve come to terms with the fact that my identity is very public here, so I’ve just started watching what I say more 🙂

I was using my real name username for my first few posts, but now I’ve changed it to a pseudonym. My real name isn’t anything close to Katelyn, but I used that as a pseudonym when I first started publishing stuff online when I was in high school so it works for me. Luckily, I’ve only been posting for like 2 days so there’s not a whole lot out there.

Yes, my username, or even random wedding searches sometimes turn up my posts. It doesn’t really bother me because my username is not linked to Facebook, nor does it contain my real name. I have posted my first name on here, but even though it is non-traditional, Google usually reads it as part of a word as it is a suffix on a few words.
