Because the Kimchi Mamas community has grown so much over
the past year, I’d like to take this opportunity to re-introduce myself. I am
Twizzle, an online moniker I’ve used since the early nineties
when I first started using email. While I think frequently about outing myself
and using my real name on this blog (and on my personal one), I always get cold
feet and decide against it. Why must I hide behind a thin cloak of anonymity?
Primarily to protect my family. I suppose if I were to blog only about myself,
I would feel more free to use my real name; however, because I write so
voluminously about my daughter, I feel that I owe it to her to protect her
privacy, as well as safeguard her from any malefactors who might
comb through Asian American mom blogs for whatever perverted reason.
