Split in Two

Real Live Preacher has a dilemma. It took me years to get to the point where I accepted that my online and offline lives would merge. It is largely the case now that they are. There are still those in my private life who know nothing of my online writings. There are still lots of folks online who know nothing about my life and career. But these 2 groups are slwoly being merged.

I have often thought that an important crossroads in each persons life online is when they come to the realization that there truly is no such thing as anonymity online. Welcome to the club RLP!

Yeah, it is a bit stressful. In my case, I find it easier to tell true stories than make them up, so I don't have to worry about my mom finding my blog and leaving a comment telling everyone that I'm actually a 14 year old girl.

I think honesty is the issue. It's hard not to write for your audience, and if your audience contains people you know, it's even harder to stay honest.
