Incognito: Yes or No?

Been having a lot of personal debates since starting this blog.

Tumblr or WordPress? Anonymity or “Real”-ness?  And all the other little debates in between.  Let me share how I finally settled them.

Tumblr vs. WordPress

I started a Tumblr vs. WordPress discussion on my personal Facebook and was amused by the ensuing discussion.  Most of the respondents stated WordPress as a serious blog and Tumblr as a blog people just maintain for fun.

While I want to be “taken seriously” in this blog, and be a credible resource and deliver honest, useful and reliable content, I still want fun and lightness to be the prevailing feel of the blog.  That and sheer laziness have led me to the conclusion that Tumblr is better.

Seriously though, I think a lot of customization can be done with Tumblr (though I’ve yet to fully customize — I don’t see a real need yet), so yeah, snaps for Tumblr!

Incognito: Yes or No?

While I can continue writing anonymously, I will.  This has been quite a stressful debate for me as my efforts to remain anonymous will limit the details I can include in my personal posts here.  It’s a good and bad thing, I guess.  But having this blog open to the public really lends itself to a lot of unavoidable exposure or openness.

I imagine that over time, I will eventually be dropping more and more details about my business, so certain people who know me will eventually guess that I’m writing this blog.

—-

But anyway, this whole thing really is supposed to be for me (though ironically, having a public blog presupposes writing for an audience).  And if I so happen to amuse others or help others with this, then cool.  But I should remember that this is for me, and the last thing this should be is a cause for stress.

GAH.  So that said, I will go all new age-y and breathe in…breathe out…and let it go.
