You know, my real name isn’t attached to this here Gratuitous Rex blog. I don’t want the things that I write traced back to me.
Even when this wasnt about my lady friend or my job search or anything intimate. Even when it was just comedy-type writing. I’m in the corporate world (when I’m working) and it wouldn’t be right. Maybe. I don’t want to chance it.
Now, early on I did tell a few select people about my blog, told them the name and everything. I haven’t mentioned it in ages.
I occasionally here people say “oh, I read that in your blog” or “I have to catch up.”
I gotta say that I think that’s really cool that some people I know are still reading.
(One friend in particular said that he never leaves comments because the other comments are serious and his would be just goofing because that is the type of relationship that we have. Which is fine. I like that. And I appreciate his not “disrespecting The Bing.”)
Do these people now know more about me than they used to? Absolutely. I’m glad I haven’t publicized it so much but these few are ok in my book.
