"What’s in a name?"
"That which we call a rose By any other word would smell as sweet"

Ok, I pumped it up enough yesterday. Sorry about that, lol. I had some company Saturday night -cough cough- and I wasn't sure how I felt about writing about it initially since I knew I would be read.
But, I am going to get off topic here for a sec. See the thing is, my anonymity has recently been slipping slowly away. You all know that 'Kate' isn't my real name. It's actually my daughter's middle name, but that is beside the point. The point is that since I have been online, I have always been katehope and with the birth of my youngest daughter katehopeeden (all of my daughter's middle names). For many years, no one knew my real name but lately my real name and online name have been crossing paths a bit.
When I decided to take over the San Antonio single parents group, I used my real name. It was new for me to be addressed by my real name online. Then when I went to Dallas, people who had known me for years as Kate, suddenly knew me by my real name. Now
Steve has asked me if it would be ok to use my real name for his site .
Steve first asked me if I would be interested in writing for games, I told him my real name and his response "Hmmm - you don't seem like the kind of person who hides from controversy - you certainly fooled me :)" Is that what I am doing? Maybe I have security issues, I don't know. I guess I may have been keeping my real life and my online life completely separated in an attempt for... what? Privacy? Safety? Security? I'm not sure. I mean, what is the big deal? I am not hiding from anyone. Granted I do post some things on here that I wouldn't want broadcasted all over my place of employment or the PTA meetings (like I go to those -snort-). But what is so wrong with using my real name?
I know that about half of my online friends use their names and the other half do not. What do ya'll think? I would love to hear your opinions about my coming out of one of the proverbial closets...
Oh, yeah, if you have been waiting for that bomb I mentioned yesterday... wait no more. :P I had the best sex I have ever had in my entire life Saturday night. Ever. Don't ask, you already know who with. :P
Off to conquer the pile of SHIT on my desk.

Who: katehopeeden
Where: San Antonio, Texas Yeah, so I am all that you see here. I am friendly and kind, crazy and bitchy, playful and flirty... sometimes I am funny but mostly I just write the first thing that comes to mind and then stop when it ends. I love life and I am lucky to be living the one that I am. Want to know more?

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
