The outcome of Googling myself

The outcome of Googling myself October 11, 2014 Reputation management was the theme for class this week and now it is time to focus on our assignment–Googling ourselves. In the event that you were unaware, there is also an Australian vocalist named Megan Washington. How rad is that?! Someone that I share a name with also loves music just as much as I do! Anyway, the point of me telling you that is I immediately knew that any type of Google search may be difficult to turn up results on me unless the search terms were very specific.

That other Megan Washington is a pretty cool gal. My Results: I have blurred out search results of irrelevant information or of images that do not belong to me. The video results from the search turned up both MLB Fan Cave videos and video interviews that I have done with musical artists over the years. The most popular images associated with my name and email address were photos that I have taken at concerts, one of myself interviewing former professional baseball player and current ESPN analyst Aaron Boone, one of my head shots, a few photos from different blog entries and an image I had uploaded to Instagram. Surprises: My highest result was my LinkedIn profile and not my Google associated accounts...
