If an employer, partner or anyone of significance ever googles me, I'm fucked

Seriously, I was a complete fucking idiot a few years ago. I have found threads from the complaints forum where I'm bitching about crushes who have 'BROEKN MAH HERT' and I think I nearly put my face through my wall.

This is seriously the most cringey thing ever.

Both my maiden and married names don't even lead to me on the first page of a google search. That I can see.

You gave me the idea of searching for my old complaints threads on google, but I couldn't find the one I wanted. And even with quotes it still doesn't search the hyphens. Though, I now know that my "more like this" searches are horrifying and I need to clean up my gallery bad.

I swap aliases every few years. Though now that I am older I can't do it as much because I have to combine my personal and professional lifestyles.

I'm lucky, my real name is common enough that I'm impossible to Google.

My real name is fairly common too. But if anyone were to find out my deviantart account name, i'd be easy to stalk

I've used the same username for everything since Jr High.

Of course I haven't posted anything stupid since I was like 17, so it's all faded out into nothing.

Don't ever have your real name attached to websites?
Delete all old profiles.

Did you use your real name once upon a time? Why would they google your deviantart username?

I use it for a lot of things, youtube, google+, it was my twitter account for a while but recently changed. I'm pretty easy to find, actually. I leave my intellectual property lying about all over the damn place.

I use my name through my twitter, facebook, youtube, and google+ because I use them all for work. Since I use all of them for work, I don't put stupid crap on them.

The moral of the story: don't put crap on the internet. It can and will get tracked back to you.

I know this now.

Unfortunately I can't go back in time 4 years and punch myself in the face :D

There's just way too much of it to delete, I'm not even sure I can delete deviantart forum posts that have been locked. They're just THERE FOREVER

Yes, yes they are.

Why don't you use a different username throughout your accounts now? That would be a simple and painless solution.

I've already started. I changed my username a few months ago because I've had this one for so many years. This is just the one I have for deviantart (which I rarely use now) and random accounts for things like GameFAQs

Just pray that no one decides to care about your past that badly.

I dont think an employer will go so far as to find your years old angst and hold it against you lol

Yep. Damnit.

Well as far as I can tell (and this is with all of ten seconds research) my full name isn't attached to my deviantart account, so I might just go around all the other accounts I have by this alias and remove my real name from them.
