I googled myself yesterday looking for a good picture (you'd think I would just have one but I needed a respectable business picture and turns out I just like to look ridiculous anytime someone points a camera in my direction).
As you know I have been off Facebook for the month. Today is officially the last day of my face-battical. And as excited as I am to get back to the world of knowing what is going on with everyone I even remotely know in down to the minute details... Here's what I noticed when I googled myself:
Without Facebook, I'm search engine optimized!
If I were to apply for a job or something (which I'm not!) or be googled by anyone who wished to bestow upon me any kind of opportunity, endeavor or otherwise, they would find, after googling me that I'm a sexuality educator, I work at IndependenceFirst, I received a 40 under 40 award last year, and various places they could have seen me do a workshop/presentation on sexuality education.
Once you throw facebook in the mix, it's a lot less about my professional accomplishments and a lot lot lot more silly pictures.
It's very interesting. It gives me pause.
Oh my gosh....I'm so sorry. I couldn't resist.
But it makes me wonder..just about the way something like Facebook can clog things up.
Well, at any rate, I'll likely be back on come Monday. It's been a nice sabbatical though. I thought about nothing but what was currently happening and about who I was currently with.
