Have you ever Googled yourself? I mean have you gone onto www.google.com (1) and typed in your name and hit search? Some people recommend that you do this to keep up on what may be considered the fact or fiction posted on the World Wide Web. You can even set up Google alerts and get an email each day if your name ever pops up in a news story. A media relations buddy of mine does this just to see if his name is out there anywhere. I am going to sign up to get weekly emails because there are lots of people out there with my name.
What about the Jeff White who is an artist? His website is www.jeffwhiteart.com (2). He paints about items in nature that relate to things that affect him. Apparently there is a Jeff White in Las Vegas, Nevada that is a custom jeweler. His website is www.jeffreywhite.com (3). He apparently has a cool jewelry lab that can make fancy things. I like shiny things, so I might look him up whenever I stop by Vegas. This next guy gives me the willies. He is also a Jeffrey C. White and he is a Research Entomologist. What the heck is that? It’s a bug guy. www.bedbugcentral.com/about/profile.cfm/jeff-white (4) He works for a company called Bedbug Central and hosts Bedbug TV. This guy treats bed bugs. You know those little guys that were in the news last night and that your Grandma warned you about. Eww. There are a couple photographers out there. www.jeffsphotos.com (5) and www.jeffwhitephotographer.com (6). Each of them does some nice work.
Other more famous Jeff White’s included a movie visual effects guy www.imdb.com/name/nm1578635/ (7), and a musician www.jeffwhitemusic.net (8). Now these guys are pretty cool, but I think I have found my three favorite other me’s. This first guy is an Australian Rules Football Player and apparently one of the premier ruckman in the league for the Melbourne Football Club. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_White (9) I bet this guy is huge in Australia.
Then you have this group of other Jeff’s. www.santabarbarasurfer.com/index.php/news/article/santa_barbara_legend_jeff_white/ (10) speaks of a legend in Santa Barbara who touched many people. www.bu.edu/recognizes/gift-impact/scholarship-fellowship/white-scholarship/ (11) talks about a man who left this world way too early and fulfilled his final wish. His parents then decided to honor him. I know I will make my own mark on this wonderful world still, but just to honor these men’s names would be awesome.
Now I also found real estate agents, mixed martial artists, a knife guy, car dealers, mechanics, heck even doctors. Google came up with 84,400,000 results in just .29 seconds. What is out there on your name?
