Sooner or later, critical information about one’s Internet presence disperses. Yes! It does. When that happens, it is easy to surmise that it is time to give it all up and go outside to soak up some sun.
Right about then, something unexpected comes along and makes it apparent that there is still much more to do. Now that I disconnected my connections, I am ever so sorry, and I am scrambling to re-acquire my ersatz identity.
The big mistake in all this, is my having relied upon technology to keep my identity alive and well. And — well? — it failed, along with my paper and pencil address book, which got tossed when I backed up the digital files; then, lost that, too.
Do you know — no, you probably don’t know — that stores have stopped selling address books altogether? And diaries — real honest-to-goodness, book in hand diaries with great information printed inside.
Just Because You Can, Doesn’t Mean You Should
I strongly suggest that you find something else to do before this happens to you.
