Why is My Name Linked to Someone Else

I often google my name and see how it is linked on the internet. I was going through some emails and google had sent me and email about a lady in Texas, who was found dead. I thought this was and unusual email, until I read the name of the dead woman. Her name was Rhonda Waits and she was 46 years old. I am not 46 yet but we do have the same name and we favor alittle as well.

I thought it to be a joke at first, than I got to thinking, what if this is real. It was a eery feeling to say the least. I open the article up and this strange feeling just overwhelmed me, I felt as though, someone had walked over my grave. I quickly rebuked that thought and asked for protection through prayer. This woman was found dead in her tanning bed in Texas, they do not know what the causes are at this time. She had been laying there for over a day, when her boyfriend found her.

I write this because I do not want any misconception that I have passed away. I am very much alive and I hope to be for sometime to come. I am writing this to aid in awareness of why we should google our own name often, atleast once a week. I sometimes google it more often than that. Its important that if something such as the death of another person, that has our same name is linked to us,should be our wake up call. The wake up call for us to guard our idenity as well the likeliness of our name.

Since I have been writing for a while now, I often get linked on googel with other writers whose names are similar. However, this was not the case here in this latest article. This was and article that was just plain eery. I would like to send my deepest sympathy and prayers to the family of this very unfortunate sadness and death of this woman.

Below I will link the article and I would like to thank getty images for the photo I used.


Remember this article is not about me. I am very much alive.

It was a eery feeling to say the least.

This gave me chills, Rhonda. Our global community seems to get smaller and smaller each day. It seems to bring greater familiarity but at a cost. I agree that we should do everything to protect our identities; there a wonderful people on the Net, and also those who would steal who we are for their own gain. Thank you for sharing this eerie experience; it does raise awareness.

The Finance Hub, thanks for your comment and yes we should all gogle our name often. I never thought I would googel something as eery as this. I once did a google search and found that someone was using one of my poems over seas. I wrote to the so called author of my poem and they claimed that it was a mistake and they took my poem down rather quickly. So yes we sometimes find things that we don't want to find.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Hi Genna East and yes I also believe that we should do everything, that we can to protect our idenities. There are alot of others out there that would steal what we have got, for financial gain. I had chills when I wrote this article. I wrote it too raise awareness of protecting ourselves and googleing our name. Googleing our name is very important. I do not believe that we think of this often enough or when it's too late. Yes our global community does keep getting smaller and smaller.

Thanks again for your comment.

I hope by writing this article that it will help raise awareness and people will do more to protect themselves for mistaken idenities or stolen identies.

Thanks for your comment and have a nice day.
