When Good News is sometimes Bad News.

The reason this site is called EimerDebris is, well, because my last name is Eimer. I've also been called Eimer all my life, among other things.

Another reason I go by Eimer is I'm not really too sure I want the whole world to know my whole name, yet.

Eventually, I'm going to start a website with my name, resume, etc. I'll also link to two other sites: my eventual cartoon website (where I'll sell stuff) and this blog (where I'll write about selling stuff).

On a whim, I typed in my name on Yahoo.com to see what would come up. I was shocked to find that, out of more than 45,000 possible entries, this blog tops the list.

I think it has something to do with; (A.) My primary e-mail is Yahoo based and (B.) I'm a current member of Flickr , an online photo-sharing community, and have my blog address posted on that site - which is currenlty owned by Yahoo.

However, when I type in my name on Google, this site doesn't come up at all. Which is weird in its own little way.

So what do I think?

In a way I think it's cool. If people are looking for me and type in my name, they'll come across this blog and can find out what I've been up to.

In another way I think it sucks. If people are looking for me and type in my name, they'll come across this blog and can find out what I've been up to.

I guess I started this blog to have a place where my friends could go and find out what I'm thinking about, what movies I'm seeing and what cartoons I've been drawing, etc. without sending out mass e-mails all the time.

On the other side of the coin, possible clients, even current associates, could find this blog by plopping in my name. Some may not like what they see. Others may like it. Some may just go 'meh'.

I'm in a creative field, so I really doubt that I could ever get fired. But who knows?

If I was selling something - say t-shirts of my cartoons, or prints or some sort of service - I would be ecstatic that this site was first on the search list. I mean, people pay big money for that type of play.

For now, I guess I'm just OK with it.

That said, I think it's important to have as little inhibition as possible when writing, painting, drawing, acting, doing stand-up, making a film etc.

So keep tuning in. I'm not going to change. Hell, I may even get a little more controversial.

Fuck it, eh? You only live once.
