I Am Who I Am

Moses fled Egypt and lived in Midian for forty years when God appeared to Moses in the burning bush and told him to go to Egypt to lead the Israelites out of slavery.  In response, Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you’, and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’  Then what shall I tell them?”  God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.  This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you’”.  The name of I AM is how God chose to introduce himself, and I am probably committing some type of sacrilege by writing this post.

I worked as a spy for the CIA for many years and now I just want to be me.  Sorry, I was just kidding about being a spy.  Blogging anonymously would not change who I am, so I don’t see the point in hiding my identity from anyone.  I don’t have any fear about being judged and I maintain my privacy, by writing about topics that interest me.  I am not a well-known celebrity, nor do I care to be one, but I accept myself for who I am.  I am not saying that I am an autosexual person, one that is sexually attracted and erotically aroused with being with myself, I just don’t want to wear a mask that hides who I am and creates a false appearance of me being pretentious.

  1. I don’t think blogging anonymously is “wearing a false mask.” In fact, blogging anonymously allows me to express myself more freely than I might if my actual identity was known. Do you really feel that anonymous bloggers are pretentious?

      1. I don’t care one way or the other if someone blogs anonymously or blogs under their real world identity. I don’t judge the blogger or the blog using that as a criterion. I do judge the blogger and the blog based exclusively upon what they write in their posts.

  2. You obviously don’t carry around the same fears about ID thieves that some of the rest of us do. I’m more open than I used to be about my on-line information, but not a great deal. Stalkers are real too, and real nasty. I said this on another person’s response to Fandango’s question today “it’s what the blogger is comfortable with that counts” and I believe it. I’m glad you feel able to be so free!
