Howdy readers!

Just a quick update. For reasons far too many to list out here, I’ve decided to pursue an anonymous blog in addition to this one. This blog fills a niche and I’d like to maintain that intact as I continue to post things of interest here. Furthermore, there are many topics that I frequently ruminate about and that I’d be more comfortable writing and discussing about anonymously. I’ve come to understand that this blog, a tool that’s meant to caress my intellect as much as it does yours (come on! admit it! :-P),  is unsuitable to fulfill this important role in entirety.

If you’re a close friend or a blogger who knows me personally, then you know how to find me and would probably recognize  my anonymous presence when you see it. To you I make just one earnest plea: try not to blow my cover 😛 ! My friend, Jaffer of Maniaravings, had a pertinent example of how the privacy of bloggers can be adversely affected by the slapdash behavior of people known to them. Sometimes unintentionally. Always keep in mind some relevant guidelines for bloggers set forth by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (a privacy group) here.

Alrighty then! Until we meet again, cheerio!
