When I first started blogging – back when I was pregnant with Lovegirl – I was pretty open with details of my life. Where I was from, our real names, etc., etc. Back then I’m not even sure it was called blogging – I think I kept an “online diary.”
Fast forward a couple of years to when I started blogging over at blogspot. I wanted to be kind of anonymous. I’m not hiding anything from anybody, but I wasn’t real sure that I wanted my name/face/identifying details out there for the world to see. All those warning about online stalkers/predators/crazies and the like….Well, I started posting pictures and then along come FB and the Twitter and now I’m pretty sure I’m not as anonymous as I once was.
Several folks from the blog found me on FB, I’ve emailed back and forth with readers, and several of y’all I know in real life. Which means clearly, some of you know my name. I think I’ve done a better job of keeping Lovegirl’s name under wraps but I know I’ve mentioned Smoochy’s name on FB more than once.
Anyhoo, what I want to know is:
Do you know my name? Do you know Smoochy’s name? Do you know Lovegirl’s name? (A simple yes or no will do – no need to prove your knowledge.) If so, how’d you find out? Do you blog/FB/Tweet? Are you anonymous or are you an open book? How’d you make the decision to “go public” if you did? Do you regret it?
