Who am I?

Fandango’s provocative question this week is

Do you blog anonymously? Why or why not?
When I started my blog in 2013, I was ‘anonymous’ and didn’t mention any names of my family, friends, Hubby or myself.
Since then, I have acronyms for close friends, family consists of Bro, OB, Sis or a smattering of Nephews or Nieces, Hubby is still Hubby, but almost everyone knows my name is Di now, which is fine by me. There are some readers who prefer to call me Pen, or Pens and I like that too, but as for my surname? No. Not here.

I try to be honest in my blog posts and when voicing opinions. I’m not a business or professional writer, I blog for fun and enjoy the interaction between fellow bloggers, many of which I consider personal friends now, some even extended family.
I read that someone put their personal details on Facebook and were inundated with unwanted messages, callers, and strangers turning up. I don’t want that as I value our privacy, and in the virtual world of blogging, first names are friendly as are nicknames like SWMBO. It’s personal or professional choice if you want to go one step further.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Youโ€™re right it has to be a personal choice.

    It sometimes shocks me how carefree some people are with their personal details on social media. The wide world doesnโ€™t need to know more than your family doctor or the inspector of taxes! ๐Ÿ˜
