Hey all, if you read this blog you know I was previously posting under the pen name Odelia Emmanuel (which was a tribute to my mom and dad, but that is probably TMI). After much deliberation I decided to use my real name for my writing.
- I’m proud of my writing. As such my real name should stand behind it.
- It’s exhausting to maintain two online personalities, i.e. email addresses, Twitter accounts, etc. Managing one brand just makes life easier.
- Like a lot of you, I was worried about privacy. But here’s the thing: I can be a writer, use my real name, and not broadcast details about my personal life. And let’s be real: there aren’t that many people who are interested in my private life. With celebrities galore I am just not that interesting and I’m okay with that 🙂 Plus, with the advent of the internet there aren’t many things that are private anymore.
- When people see my book out there I want them to know it was me who wrote it. I guess it’s an ego thing!
