Online/offline selves

I've been a busy bee these past few weeks, I thought I'd share a little bit of what I've been working on. In addition to doing my assistantship/internship/school, I've also been in graduation mode and have tried to be proactive in updating my online portfolio (which is here if you're curious). I know I've discussed blogging privacy and my hesitations with linking my online self with my personal identity, but I think I am finally at a point where I'm comfortable merging the two. Part of it is because it's so important in the adpr/social media industry to have an online presence, and part of it is because I no longer feel like I have to hide or make light of my hobbies from people in my real life. I've introduced my online self to my real-life friends -- so now online friends, here is a peek at my offline identity. I don't really think there is too much of a distinction with online/offline identities anymore because of social media. 

P.S. If you want more talk on blogging identity, the comments on this past post are pretty insightful.

  1. Congrats on working towards graduation! I haven't merged my online and regular selves yet - but I can def see how for you doing online media stuff, it is a great way to show you savvy.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
