[ETEC 527] Vanity Search 2

Since starting my Web 2.0 course I have learned a lot about creating a digital footprint and about so many web tools that I had no clue about. In doing an update vanity search for my name, I noticed just a few more entries in Google (my new twitter and posts), a few third party data driven search engines, and some background check site. I don’t feel any negative way about it though because I’ve come to understand that the more I create and use the web and its tools, the more my digital footprint will grow, and when it does, I want it to be in the right ways and the right places. I have a very unique spelling of my name, which includes an accent mark that I just recently began using full time. I also have started incorporating my middle initial in order to further solidify my identity online and in other ways. I look forwards to see how these slight changes will cultivate a better digital footprint as I continue in my career. The best thing I’ve learned about vanity searches are what’s important to focus on to stand out!
