I’m curious, how many of my fellow bloggers use a pseudonym (or, like me, a partial pseudonym)?
When I initially began blogging, I chose a pseudonym primarily because I worked in a ridiculously conservative industry and didn’t like the idea of my employer Googling my full legal name and finding my little corner of the Interwebs.
Now that I’ll be soon starting a new job in a more laid back environment, I’m somewhat tempted to “come out” with my secret blogging identity to people I know in real life. You see, there are very few people in my real life whom I’ve told about this blog. Obviously my husband reads it, as do a very small handful of friends. (And by very small, I mean two!).
I’m not even really sure what’s stopping me at this point. Fear of ridicule? Anxiety over being accepted? It’s not like I’m friends and family with a bunch of bullies, so those fears are entirely unfounded.
If you use a pseudonym on your blog, do you openly publish and share your blog with social media acquaintances in real life?
Until next time,
