I’ve had twitter for god knows how long. A good few years I know that. Over time I’ve changed names and even complete accounts. For a while I ran a personal account which was protected and a “blog” account which meant that anything blog related went on that. However although I thought I was pretty careful about who I had on that protected account there were clearly some backstabbing twats because stuff kept getting out. So I decided to delete it. But then I had no where to write.
So I decided to go anon. Undercover. I used a random name generator and came up with something and then I found new people to follow and new followers who weren’t in any way related to my old account so there was no way of them knowing who I was.
And now I can write what I like about whatever I like and who I like and no one knows its me. It feels so good.
Its a space to be free.
Now I know thats what a blog is supposed to be but I never thought about what would happen if family or friends read it back when I started it so I didn’t go anon. Over time family and friends have found it and most love what I have to say and are avid readers *waves at family*. And although its rare I moan about them I can no longer do that on here. I can no longer get things off my chest if my friends have bugged me or if someones upset me. So thats when I turn to my anon account.
Its good having an anon account. Its a secret part of me where I acn be myself and there are no repurcussions for it. No one gets upset by what I say or do.
Do you have an anon account? Do you blog anon? Do you wsh you had?
