You never know if you are the only you… or is there someone else just like me in another part of the world.
Here are some fun facts:
- The global population is now 4 times what it was when I was born.
- There are more people alive today than have ever been alive in the whole of history.
- I’m not the only Naomi Simson on the planet.
Way back in the early days of the internet (in the beginning of time as they say) – I did a Google search on my name and found that I was not the only Naomi Simson. In the US there are others – one in particular a published medical researcher.
Whilst I was running a tiny business at the time – I had big plans. So I registered my name as a URL – and later it became this blog. NaomiSimson.com.
My online identity was important to me, so much so that I purchased my children’s names as dotComs as well – and gave them the URL for their birthdays when they turned 14. As a little – “Welcome to the online world and right of passage gift.”. Both sites remain inactive because in those days building a web page and hosting it was hard work.
So fast forward ten years and we now live in the world where there have been a number of top level domains issued. The world of .com and .com.au are about to change.
I admit I have registered NaomiSimson.CEO (and also my children’s names – even though they are still completing their education) they may not yet be CEOs but one day they might be CEOs. I got in quickly.
If you are already a CEO or an aspiring one – or you think like me you should just reserve your kids names (as a graduation gift)… it is probably worthwhile to do it sooner rather than later.
I built my dotCEO page via reputation.CEO on the fly adding photographs, text and links – and now I use it as the one link at the bottom of my emails so people can see what I am saying anywhere online.
