"Every Super has a secret identity"

There are a couple of things I promised myself I would do if I managed to keep my blog up for one year. One of them was to pay for a nice pretty blog design, the other is to come out and tell friends and family about this little hobby of mine.  (Only Kenny my husband who helped start this adventure and my sister know about this blog)

K Jovus is really not our name. Yeah you knew that huh? When we named this blog we didn't realize how big (not that this site is big) this project would become. We might have chosen something different.

You want to know what K Jovus stands for? When Kenny was a tiny little boy he couldn't say his middle name of Joseph. He said Jovus. He is sometimes affectionately called Kenny Jovus.

So that leads me to this week’s question. Do you have a pen name? Do your friends and family know what you do with your free time? Would you tell the world what you do or keep your secret identity?

Now I am off to save the world with my super reading powers!

Happy reading.

DJ's Life in Fiction said...

I used to just keep my name "DJ", especially because I'm one of those paranoid internet people, haha. But once I received my book deal, I had to start showing off my last name, which was uncomfortable at first, but I'm getting used to it. I did think of using a pen name, but I figured that would make it harder for friends/family to find my book.

I don't use my last name on the blog, but it's probably pretty easy to figure out.

I do have mixed feelings about how much should be out there on the internet. Here's some food for thought from someone I used to work with. When anyone searches your real name on the internet, something is going to come up. He figures that the best way to control your online reputation is to put your name on everything and then make sure that the things you post (the stuff you approve of) comes up first when people search for you.
