I’ve posted previously about remaining mostly anonymous on the blog and social media and my struggle with that decision. I’ve also been open that my name used on these resources, Anne, is not the name I go by, it is my middle name. Not to confuse everyone about my identity, but I need to start going by my first name, which is Tracie. I still don’t plan on sharing this space with my circle of friends and family (other than my husband), but I also know that if someone stumbles across this or my other social media accounts, they may figure out who I am. I’m in a better place about owning my story these days and while it may be difficult if that should ever happen, I’m more prepared to handle it.
With that, I apologize for any confusion if you are reading any of my posts and see a sign-off by Anne, that is still very much me. However, from this point forward you will see me as I really am – Tracie. Thank you for following along, despite the confusion!
