The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

I removed all my dating series videos yesterday from this site and from Vimeo!  I was helping a client set up her new MacBook and googled myself and was HORRIFIED to see this site and the videos listed there!  Although the videos themselves were password protected, the comments were all still there for the world to see.  Now I know the more savvy of you out there will read this and go, "DUH," but wow...what a shock for me!


Anyway...Happy Halloween :-)  That's my horror story.

No, I'm not saying "Duh." You've just made me all the more glad I've never tied my real name to my video channels. (I learned that by watching someone smarter than me before I got into this.)


I google myself periodically just so I stay informed about what's out there about me. Spokeo and Peekyou are both sites that tie Internet usernames with personal identities, so beware!

Googling yourself on your own computer produces different results than googling yourself on a "virgin" computer!

Holy Scheiss! Yeah, that makes sense. Every computer keeps different web pages cached depending on your activity.

It's too late.  It's all been copied and sold to the highest bidder.  SpaceMonkey had to sell his guitar but I heard he's now in talks with the Enquirer...

Whatchoo worried about? Like Syd says, this could be an opportunity to cash in on your story which will be used as the basis for a hit Romantic Comedy! I say, CELEBRATE!!

gee i can only imagine which genre my story will fall under????

i was gonna say if you googled yourself on your own comp then everything you do would come up........... but i'e never tried it on a "virgin" LoL although my mum and brother did find LV videos and thanks to XFF they saw me eat a spoonfull of mayonaise :D

ARRRRgh. Yeah, I never used my real name on anything so if you google my married name you get a pair of very talented sisters who play piano and if you google my maiden name, you get my lawn seeder patent and that's about it.

Shoot. I'll miss those videos. I didn't see anything embarrassing about them. I thought you were quite eloquent which can be hard to be when you're being honest. Oh well, you know, eh ?

Well, I think I'm working on the final chapter for reals this time, so just hold that thought :-)

Ok, Ima go google myself. I'm so boring I'm probably going to be disappointed! LOL I loved those videos. Maybe I'll be a vlogger in my next life. :c )
