Is it better to have your real name or a more or less anonymous username for you

    Is it better to have your real name or a more or less anonymous username for your hub pages account?

    Assuming you don't necessarily need/want to remain anonymous, is there any benefit to using your real name?

    I prefer to be more anonymous.  I don't want everyone to know everything about me.  I would like to maintain some privacy.  Some separation.

    A lot of writers use pen names, sometimes several.  I don't see it as any different.

    I've been using "FatFreddysCat" (or variations on it) as an online alias for years now, so when I signed up here it was only natural do use that tag.

    I'm not trying to build myself up as a "brand name" writer so the alias works fine for me.
