First Generation American:
You say you want to be famous on the internet, but would you really like fame in real life? Why or why not? Ie..if your blog hit the big time, would you want to be outed?
#1: I am famous… not a household name among normal folks, but people in my career area know who I am. Which is kind of disconcerting. But it is nice being respected in the field– I do good work and I’m getting a little credit for it. Or at least getting credit for sticking around (which is probably 80%, right?). If our blog hit the big time enough to be outed I would totally disavow it. #2 wrote the whole thing. Famous on the internet is fun when it’s anonymous, because it’s fame you can turn on and off. Stalkers, not so much with the fun.
#2: probably not, because then I couldn’t bitch about work
Would you like fame in real life?
