In this paper, I use Goffman's frame analysis and Granovetter to explore the building of my digital reputation, and some of the new roles that I have taken on as a result of being at the front and centre of social media in health librarianship in Canada. I look critically at successes, as well as mis-steps and failures, in order to recognize and seize future opportunities but also to carefully consider the cumulative impact on my identity management. I draw on examples, and examine how individual incidents have helped to shape my digital reputation both negatively and positively. In doing so, I draw on the theories of social situatedness by Varela and Vygkotsky, and Bourdieu's social theories in shaping this discourse.
