Register now to protect your internet identity

When you google your name what happens?   If you’re lucky enough to have a relatively uncommon name, your facebook, linkedin, or twitter accounts are likely to come up on the first page assuming you are using your real name.  These sites all have a lot of authority on google and are useful to searchers looking to find out more about you – this makes sense.

With that in mind, there are other slightly less popular social networking sites that you should register with to protect your name – even if you don’t plan on using them.  It’s free to register and could prevent you a major headache down the road.

I didn’t sign up for EVERY one, but I grabbed a few of the bigger ones anyway, and it actually kind of got me hooked on Flickr.  Speaking of, check me out on Flickr and add me as a contact!

Funny though, that site seems to be missing AIM and Gmail (but does include Yahoo!) but by now I’m guessing you’ve already checked those.

Anyway, just a friendly tip for anyone that is creating a blog in order to promote themselves, protect their online identity, or even bury a negative story off of the first page of Google by building new content to replace it, go grab your social networking sites now before its too late.

Welcome to Nick Roshon .com

Welcome to my site!

I’ve set this up mostly to teach myself some basic web, HTML, and CSS skills and experiment around with wordpress.  Much like my twitter account, it exists for no specific purpose and offers no expertise in any category.   In the words of one of my favorite movies, Billy Madison, you may think to yourself while reading my posts that ” what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”   To which I would reply “it’s too damn hot for a penguin” and leave it at that.  So now that we’ve cleared that up, thanks for visiting my site, email me your feedback and ideas, add me to your social networking accounts if your so inclined, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers,   Nick
