I was just rethinking my digital footprint after creating this blog and I wondered if publishing this would create a new ‘footprint’. I searched for myself on yahoo and nothing came up. I then googled myself and this blog still didn’t appear. I was certain that it would appear first because my name is my blog name. The only things that appeared were from ratemyteacher.com which I was already aware of. So then I tried capitalizing my name since usually I don’t capitalize while typing quickly. Perhaps now I could find myself? No such luck. What I found instead was a direct reference to me being a vendor at my town’s festival Pippenfest 2011. Hmm…. interesting. I will need to work on this positive digital footprint. Perhaps Richardson was correct in that no footprint can be negative. Funny considering the lengths I have gone to in the past to keep my digital footprint non-existent.
*Must rethink my footprint!*
