Who Am I?

When I was in high school, a few of my friends and I decided we needed nicknames. I have no idea why that was so important, but at the time, it was. I mulled it over in my mind looking for something that would be uniquely mine. What I came up with was “Mojak.” I know, that looks strange and seems to have nothing to do with my name. I took my initials mjk and added the second letter of my middle and last name, placing them in front of the initial. That spelled, mojak. Well, the nickname kind of stuck and over the years, some friends used that nickname consistently.

About 16 years ago, I decided it was a little lopsided since my first initial did not have an accompanying vowel, so I tacked on the second letter of my first name, changing the name to Imojak. I have used this final version as an internet ID for 16 years. In the last 9 years I decided I was going to use it for business as well and developed a company that I call Imojak Enterprises.

This year, I decided I was going to see if anyone else was using that name so I did a google search on it and was surprised at what came up in that search. I do not know if that is an oriental name or not but it is being used by people who have websites with oriental languages. There were many references to the name that had nothing to do with me.

Have you checked to see who is using your name or nickname online? Do a google search. It may be a real eye opener for you.
