...there's another 'me'.
I've started to make contact with companies and other organisations to boost my writing and teaching activities. I thought I would check my online profile as I'm aware that those I've contacted may take a little time to check it out. I chose to write this blog anonymously because initially I wanted to write more freely and I wasn't sure how long I would blog, what I would write about etc. I think my real name is on a handful of websites such as School of Everything.
Anyway, I googled 'me' and up popped another 'me' on Facebook. I don't do Facebook. If I wanted to meet people, I'd go out or join a group or see my friends in the real world. Nevertheless, I had to look. The temptation was too much.
'Me' on Facebook is a perfectly nice woman with quite a few friends. I have to say, however, that I'm a bit miffed that I can't now claim my own name on Facebookplanet. I'll have to contrive a name with numbers or with my middle name. She also seems to have more friends than me. I quickly left her profile as it all felt a little peculiar. My name, someone else's life. I should never have looked! Can I claim my name back? I can't think anyone would want to participate in such a trade. My online future, I fear, may be doomed.
