Do you blog unanimously or “as yourself”? Why?
I blog with a pseudonym. I use it because I have used it for some years now, not particularly liking my given name. I also use it because I don’t like putting my name out in public. I’ve had a couple of bad experiences years back where the use of my real name and information put me in jeopardy. It may be more difficult to threaten me the way I was threatened then, but I still don’t like to take chances. So I created an appropriate pseudonym for myself and use that on virtually everything that appears on the Internet (except FaceBook).
On the other hand, I write about my life as it is, the good and the bad. This has gotten me into trouble with my daughter when she was able to see my posts on Facebook (I have since removed them). The topics I write about, even the lame Word Press prompts, are about me and my life, so in some respects, I write as myself.
