Cultivating My Real Name

One of the first links that comes up when I google searched my name was a 411 site that had my name, address, and home telephone. Instead of wasting time trying to figure out how to get rid of that information entirely, I decided with the advice of Professor Smith, that it would be best to push that information down in order to highlight things that I actually want future employers to see.

With that in mind I finally began to work on a site. It’s something I had been thinking about for a while but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to approach it. I’m beginning with a free hosting service so the url is unnecessarily long. It’s not a bad thing as of now though. I’m going to post all my work and make it something like a portfolio and eventually I will purchase my own domain and make it legit.

For now, I think this will be a good way to push other things down.This will allow me to link my twitter, youtube, facebook, and vimeo accounts to my work and the presence that I want to show. I want to create a new facebook that’s strictly business. I want to strip the attachment of my name with my current facebook simply because it’s more of a friend and family environment and I really don’t even use it at all. I want to attach myself with something that I will use and that will be easier if I start all over and actually use it this time around.

One thought on “Cultivating My Real Name

  1. It will be interesting to see if you can change your name to your current Facebook profile and create a new ‘real name’ profile. I’d definitely encourage you to do some research about how people have tried to game Facebook’s real name policy.

    Also your new site plan sounds great, looking forward to seeing how far along you get by the end of the semester.
