To Pen Name or Not to Pen Name

Here are some interesting thoughts on using a pen name.
A pen name also allows you privacy. You can choose who you want to know about your "secret identity."

If you are going to keep your identity secret and therefore reap the benefits of having a pseudonym, you can't publicly announce who you are to everyone on your Facebook page. (Read entire post.)
