This is written by Jessica Beck Blog Juggling: Keeping All Your Online Identities In The Air at Once These days it isn’t unusual for people to have several online aliases. There’s the personal persona, hanging out on MySpace and YouTube; there’s the work persona, reading news feeds and doing online research; and there’s often a third, leisure persona, frequenting specialized bulletin boards and sites for hobbies like crafting, D&D or politics.

Well, that’s not entirely true. Damn it, I’ve begun by lying to you. I am off to a bad start. Please let me try again. I can be a serious guy when it comes to my job or paying my mortgage or when I am in court defending myself against a totally trumped up charge of statutory rape (hey, she showed me her driver’s license, how was I supposed to know it was a fake?)

This is written by Jessica Beck I admit it: I have a love affair with my blog. It started so fast, as these things do. I had a LiveJournal, which was okay as far as that goes, but after three years of friends-only journaling, the spark was gone. It just didn’t excite me anymore.
