Social-Media-Handle-Consistency

Although most people know you by your name, in the internet world, you are also likely to be known by your social media handles. When I say handles, I am referring to your username or the personalized url.

There is a reason why I decided to create this blog and it is the same reason why I am suggesting that you start blogging also.
