You guys know that I write this blog anonymously. “Yellow Haired Girl” definitely isn’t what my birth certificate says. Although if I ever become a superhero, I might actually change my name.
Sometimes I find the anonymity a little bit frustrating. It’s nice to be able to keep my work life (in which I’m in the public) and my blogging life separate, but I feel like it is a bit of a struggle to get my readers to identify with me. Sometimes I fear people who visit YHG think I’m a creepy old man or a weird bully of a teenager like Gossip Girl (okay, not so much on the last one), and I really want to be able to communicate with you guys and have you get me.
Other thoughts I have: Do you guys trust what I have to say? Would I trust someone who I’ve never seen? Should I consider just using my first name? Should I show my face? What is the likelihood someone would stumble across my site and then realize it’s me, their local reporter? It’s not like I ever say bad things on the blog (I’m just highly sarcastic), but would I change my perception in the media by having this blog as well?
Ugh. My brain never shuts off. I think about this a lot.
What do you guys think? Are you okay with how I do things on here? What do you want from me? I love chatting with you guys … suggestions are welcome (and I really want them )!
Also, I almost had this entire tub for supper last night. It’s so hot outside. Is it hot where you are?
(Don’t worry, I put it back in the freezer. I had a balanced meal.)
Have a wonderful day!
