Online Self-Portrait

July 30, 2011 · 3 comments

There is a fine line between privacy and openness online.

I struggle with wanting to simplify my various handles (Fizgiggery, flaurena, Shyhound, Lauren X) into one, versus keeping them all as separate identities.

To me, being all these things is being Me. But is it confusing to people who don’t know me offline?

Regardless of whether we know each other offline, or have exchanged emails, or just visited each other’s blog, or nothing at all (!), I’m curious: do you have multiple online identities or just one handle? Do you use your real name online? If so, why? If not, why not?
