My last chance to post this for the week while it’s still technically Wednesday somewhere, seeing as it is Thursday morning on my side of the world. The more I write, the more I debate with myself whether or not to change my profile picture and write anonymously.
On the one hand if I were to be anonymous I would probably write more candid, open, pieces without filter or restraint. I wouldn’t worry about someone that actually knows me in real life reading my blog, knowing it’s me and feeling judged and exposed.
On the other hand, that isn’t who I am. I’m a tell it like it is, what you see is what you get kind of person. So if for no other reason, I don’t think that I could be this person behind the blog that no one “knows”. As an avid reader I know there is something about putting a face to the writing that makes it more endearing, at least for me. So while it would be easier for me to be more candid behind a generic profile picture and fictitious name, that’s not me.
So I’m going to make the effort to be bold, to write without filter, without fear, not worry about what people that I know might think and just put myself out there. Cyber world is a big place, so people that I know might not ever stumble across my blog. If they do I hope they like what they read, if they don’t well you can’t please everyone.
