Pandering to the Mental Illness

I love that Blogger lets you 'pick' an identity.

When I leave a comment it asks me to pick my identity. It's my turn to decide who I am. Do I use my real name, make one up, use my URL? The options are limitless. Of course, it goes without saying that if I plan on commenting frequently on the same blog it's probably a good idea to be consistent.

Also, I can be a different person on each blog if I so choose. All roads lead to Rome as the saying goes because clicking on my name leads to my profile, which in turn will lead a curious seeker to my blog.

I am sorely tempted by the possibilities. Who doesn't want an alternate ego once in a while??

Blogging already affords the creative person with the joy of anonymity if they so choose, but allowing space for different identities really is icing on the cake.

Just one more reason I love my blog....it caters quite nicely to my undiagnosed multiple personality disorder.

We know exactly what you mean. Inside every blogger is a sane person trying to get out who is being beat into apple sauce by several frustrated personalities competing for space.

K- I am so happy that you get that the sane person is the one hidden inside being beaten into submission and that the ones in charge argue with each other frequently. You'd be amazed at how many people just don't get it.
