public persona vs private

I have a confession to make: I’ve been purposefully holding back from posting here. This is the first blog I’ve had where my actual real name is attached to my writing. Prior to this, I’ve always written under a pseudonym and that means freedom of expression to this quasi-introvert.

I think I just need to disabuse myself of the notion that I’m less accountable if my legal name isn’t attached and that I need also to be absolutely flawless if my legal nameĀ is attached.

I still need to spend some time mentally navigating the terrain of how public or reticent I feel comfortable being. It’s a tricky path. …and I think the best way for me to figure things out is to DO rather than THINK because I’ve already been doing a lot of thinking about this and that hasn’t really created more posts.

Anyhow, that’s where I’ve been.
