Identity

I'm wondering...

Should I keep blogging anonymously? The very few readers I still have at this point all know my real name anyway. I'm feeling split--I comment on blogs as Sadie, so I can link here. I twitter with my real name. I blog as Sadie. I'm on Facebook with my real name. I just joined Dooce's community website as Sadie, but then was torn about it because I didn't know whether to use my real name and link my account there to Twitter, or link it to this blog and call myself Sadie.

Sadie does have a Twitter account. But she doesn't use it.

I'm tempted to just go with my real name, but one of the purposes of Sadie in the first place was to prevent being found by people that I didn't want to know about this blog. And that could still come in handy.

Sigh. Indecisive.

stay anonymous. After all, most of our brilliant writers have pen-names...

if being anonymous help your write freely. Don't taint it. If you really don't care either way, do what you wish.

You need to do what makes you most comfortable. If you're still indecisive right now, that means it's not time to make a decision one way or the other. Continue to mull it over; you'll come up with what works for you.
