Beneficial MPD (or Why I Hate Facebook)

No, this isn’t going to be a post about the happy side affects of Dissociative Identity Disorder. It’s going to be about why using a fake name on the internet is not a bad thing. In fact, I believe it is a good and healthy thing to do, and I recommend it to everyone.

Readme: Me

So, for those (as yet hypothetical) folks who have found this blog who don’t know who I am, here’s a little information:

First, my name isn’t actually Bobby Archer. It’s a pseudonym I’ve been using online for a while. The story behind it isn’t terribly long, but it’s kind of an inside joke and I don’t think it’d be all that interesting to someone outside it. In any case, I like the state of near-anonymity that the internet allows and I prefer using a pen name (keyboard name? blogonym?) when going around the internet. I might go into more detail about the whys and wherefores of that, but for now I’ll leave it at that.

Hello World (because that’s how I roll: with originality)

Yes, this is a blog.

No, I have no idea what I’m doing with it.

Basically, starting a blog is something that I’ve been saying I should do for a while now. I have various thoughts and ideas that I feel are best inflicted on a wider audience than I am typically able to reach on a day to day basis.

I haven’t had a blog or a journal or anything in years, and I’ve found it’s kind of hard to tell whether an idea is good when it’s just rattling around in your head. It certainly doesn’t help that my attention span is short enough that I’m not really thinking about these Great Ideas the next time I’m talking to someone who might be interested. Usually I’ve forgotten them by the time my fiancee’s done asking what I’m thinking about. Hopefully, having something like this will encourage me to hold on to these ideas and develop them into something.
