You may notice when reading my blog that I have never refered to anyone on my life (friends, family, co-workers) my name. I use pronouns like “my mom,” “my co-worker,” “my roommate,” you get the idea.
I do this because I want to respect their privacy. While most people probably wouldn’t have a problem being mentioned by name in my blog, I know that some people might object to being talked about by name in a public forum. And I respect that, because, really, I’m a pretty private person. I really value my personal privacy.
So, you’ll never see anyone else’s name on this blog. And I plan to keep it that way.
