I recently received an email that my Cruel Goddess Ana post is going to be Freshly Pressed.
This caused a whirl of activity and feelings for me.
I am honored, obviously. But being that I blog about my personal struggles and mental-health, it is my intent to remain anonymous. So I am also terrified.
I went through my whole blog and added passwords to any entries that had pictures of me or close friends. I think most of you have already seen them, but if any of you would like the password, just contact me. I’m happy to provide it.
That should prevent any real life friends or family from identifying me. There are a couple that would most likely figure out it’s me from stories, writing style, the names of my alters (some being nicknames I’ve gone by). But those people wouldn’t judge me too harshly I think. That and most of them do not frequent WordPress and it’s Freshly Pressed page. So I doubt they’d stumble across it anyway.
I just wanted to be a bit safer. I realized that recently I have been a little too careless with my anonymity. No longer.
