One thing I don't understand about your site: why the anonymity?

Actually I have a lot of friends and relatives who read my site who know EXACTLY who I am.

As for everyone else, I shield much of my info because:

1) MrsDuck is a executive/director at a large Fortune 200 manufacturer. I don't want to jeopardize her career if it should be discovered that "Oh, you're married to that nutcase with the silly web site?".

2) Generally being protective of the Ducklings.

3) I do occasionally bash my current employer. Some of my co-workers are aware of my site, none of my managers are.

I may be paranoid, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I understand it would help to promote myself if I went totally public. But at the moment, I have more to lose than to gain if I disclosed too much. (MrsDuck would kill me anyway.) Besides, with anonymity, I can be as brash as I want and say more of what I think. Not that being an @$$hole is a good thing, but what I mean is I feel like I can spout off what's on my mind easier with anonymity and get my point across without overly worrying about repercussions.

Maybe if I make enough articles and get published (dreaming, dreaming...), then I'll let all the covers loose and hire a PR firm.
