Now this may come as a shock to no one, that I am fairly comfortable with living my life in the online world. I tend to keep my online life clean and uncontroversial (no long political rants can be found on my Facebook or any public place). However, this is a result of the privilege I was born into (white, cisgendered male from Canada). I'm fully aware that if my level of privilege was different, I would probably feel very differently about living my life online.
My Digital Footprint
Use the @mrbrenlea handle proved to be much more effective. This is what I use across my public social media accounts and it was easy to find me. Again not surprising.
However, as I look at through the searches for @mrbrenlea, the one thing that struck me was how little I have actually contributed to the global pool of knowledge. As an educator at heart who works as a tech coach/integrator, I felt kind of ashamed of myself. I need to further develop my confidence in my skills and knowledge and trust that those who are interested will like what I share and of course find it.
