Susanne Goldstone Googlegängers

If you run a search of "Susanne Goldstone" into Google you currently get 629 responses. I wrote a blog about my obsession with googling myself last year. The best part is that my name is unique so every single posting is actually about me. Not a Susanne Goldstone from Mequon, Wisconsin. Not Susanne Goldstone from Sedona, Arizona. ME! As I wrote last year, my name is Susanne, not the more common Suzanne, and Goldstone, not Goldstein. I'm not just tooting my own horn. I learned from the New York Times this morning that I'm not the only one. Its actually a scientific thing that people are "unconsciously drawn to people and things that remind us of ourselves." For instance, the article tells us about Sam Blackman who consistently checks up on the other Sam Blackman's of the world and sheps nachas whenever someone gets married, has baby, etc. Even though he doesn't know them, he feels a kinship because they share the same name.

I would love to find another Susanne Goldstone. With so many billions of people in the world, there must be one. So I am asking, if you are Susanne Goldstone, hit me up. I'd love to hear from you. You can be like the "sister" I never knew I had.

I have a tendency to be friends with people who share the name of my actual sister.
"Susanne Goldstone"
(It's actually true, some of my best friends share her first name)
