Two posts in a day? This must be your lucky day! A double dose of me; now that’s special, right?
I thought i’d tell you guys what I’ve been thinking about recently. It’s a bit of a shock, and goes against pretty much everything I’ve said in the past, but you know… Meh. Anyway, I have thought about unanonymising this blog. [Is that even a word?] Yeah, I have thought about it. The fact is, these are my thoughts, and I have to take responsibility for them. They’re mine, and no one else’s, and however much I hide them in reality, they’re still there, festring away until I put them into words on this blog. Much of this blog is nothing too revealing about me; just a few stupid thoughts, my life in a paragraph and some weird comment discussions [which I absolutely love and live for].
But then again, there is stuff which I wouldn’t want people who know me to read. I’m sure you know which posts these are, and if you don’t, then count yourself lucky. If someone who knows me saw it, particularly professionals, I’d immediately be questioned on it, or reported for it. Reported to my parents, or social services, or whatever. To be honest, if someone knew enough about me, it wouldn’t take them long to figure out who I am, and then find out all about me on Google, or whatever. I’ve done my best to cut all ties, and to make sure I don’t do the stupid things, like follow my blog Twitter account.
I wonder: would it ruin the whole thing for you as a reader if I said my name, and who I was? Is the anonymity aspect important to you, or do you think otherwise? I mean really, there’s no way of me knowing that one of you other anonymous bloggers in my best friend, or my neighbour, or at my school, or my parent. I guess I just have to live hoping that no one pieces this together anytime soon.
Telling you guys who I am could get me into trouble. Nothing major, but as I always say, I don’t want some people reading this. In the same way, I’d absolutely love to have the freedom to tell you guys who I am, because you all mean so much to me, and I know that I can trust you. But as I say, would it ruin my blog for you, if you knew who I was? Or would it remain, unchanged, despite my name being attached to it…
