I’ve always wondered what would pop up when I googled myself. It used to be the website for Basketball Beat from grade 7, or when my class was in the paper in grade 3. However, things have changed a little since then!
I have to admit, I felt a little popular with all these things popping up about me! I definitely feel more confident about telling future employers to “google me”. I like that my about.me page pops up first – definitely a good starting point. One thing that caught me off guard was my Pinterest page, and under images, my Pinterest profile picture. I guess I didn’t mind that my page popped up, I was just caught off guard at the pictures of me. It made me take a second glance at my Pinterest page and what it is exactly that I’m pinning . . . Thank god the worst thing I discovered were 3 pins of Ryan Gosling’s face!
After further investigation, I found some interesting facts:
Apparently, there are, or should I say were, three other Anna Hipperson’s around at the around the 1830-1900’s. There was even an Anna M. Hipperson (same middle initial as mine!). This was so cool, that I just had to call my grandparents. Apparently, Anna and Mary (my sister’s name) were very popular “back in the day” with the Hipperson clan. So, as I was looking up other Hipperson’s from English in the 1830-1900’s, I discovered a googled version of a family tree!
