Why Do I Blog?

Once again I’m pondering the reasons why I blog, what I want to do with my blog, and specific goals for cyberspace communication.

What is My Real Name?

After reading a couple of blogs today, I had an epiphany (the topic of one of the blogs http://joanneeddy.com/2016/01/06/epiphany-on-the-wisdom-of-the-unexpected/?c=1467#comment-1467) about my ‘real’ name (another blog topic).

The epiphany came when the writer asked ‘what is your real name?’ It’s a question I’ve fiddled around with for many years,… Continue reading What is My Real Name?
