As I searched for my own name, I can honestly say I was satisfied. My LinkedIn, Facebook, and Vimeo accounts were in the top five results on google. It would’ve been nice to see my Vimeo account come first since that’s where I displayed all of my work (which I think is what really matters) but I’m not gonna freak out if they check out my Facebook account either. Facebook is a social network FIRST before anything else, so if they discover something about me that they don’t like, I’m not going to hold myself accountable for it on a professional level. It’s not a professional website. I disagree with self-censorship as well, given MY career path I don’t think it’s necessary if you have the skills required for the job.
In order to get my Vimeo account higher in google, I figured that maybe increasing its activity would work out, so that’s what I’m doing. I’m home writing short stories and have begun collaborating with people on other story ideas that I’m really excited about. Good things are going on and progress is definitely being made.
