I’ve been approached about speaking at BlogHer Nashville. I think I could share an interesting perspective, as could most of us, but I wonder about shedding my cloak.
There’s no rule that says I have to use my name, but I’m out there for all to see, to judge.
As bad as a comment might be, it’s forgotten, maybe deleted. If someone says something to your face, it would be much harder to forget.
Am I brave enough to come out of hiding? It’s one thing with you, you read and comment, or email, and we have a connection. Those whom I’ve met or spoken to, I trusted you enough to do so. Revealing myself to a larger audience is both daunting and exciting.
Do the benefits outweigh the consequences? Or would participating mean I’m just indulging my ego?
