In this day and age, there’s real life and online life. Often those intersect. Lately I’ve been trying to consolidate things online. I’ve changed my personal email and am currently in the process of migrating things over. Eventually the goal is to have everything related to my writing career’s public life on the domain-specific emails I’ve set up and everything personal attached to my new personal email.
The only problem with that?
Over the course of a decade or more of the internet being prevalent, there’s a lot out there, some I’m sure I’m forgetting. It might take me a year to get everything sorted out. Sigh.
My advice to anyone reading this is to start now, if you think you might ever need to change things around. I’m trying to consolidate my life and hopefully thus make even more time for writing.
The other bit of advice in all of this is to set up your blog under the name you want to write with and not some random thing like I did. Because I’ve been paying for that decision since the day I made it.
Consolidating emails and sorting out the tangled online web I’ve created is not an easy task. Save yourself the work and start out now.
