I searched my name on Google during one of my vanity moments. There is a word for this self-googling. Ego-surfing.
Whether it’s a case of self-absorption or a security check of how much of your personal information is out there, ego-surfing is popular. I’m sure you’ve probably done it.
If you haven’t, do it now! Find out what your name turns up. Try using quotation marks for exact results.
What did you find?
Are you a somebody online?
An important somebody that can go places and easily get a visa solely based on a Google search of your name? Yes, there’s actually someone that this supposedly happened to.
Anyway, in my process of ego-surfing, I found all kinds of references to my name. Floral water. Aromatic herb. All sorts that had nothing to do with me.
I decided that I wanted to claim my name and stamp my presence in cyberspace. Before someone else decides to take it and make it about herbal water.
You can expect exciting things ahead now that I’ve moved to my permanent address.
