The internet is a weird mix of public showmanship and anonymity. Some throw open the windows for all to see via social media sites like Facebook. As for me, I’ve always been more of the draw-the-shutters type. I’m far more private than public.
Until now. See, I’m going to share my full name with you right now. Here, online, for all to see.
Hi, my name is Melissa Smith.
No, really. It’s Smith. Good luck Googling me. I have one of the most common last names, as well as one of the most popular first names of the ’70s. Even if you tack on where I live, I’ll bet you end up with thousands of hits, without a discernible way to figure out which one’s me.
