Title says it all. I’ve debated dropping my psuedonym for quite some time, but now that I’m taking a temporary hiatus from work to go back to get my Masters, it seems this may be the best time, if ever, to do so.
Pros: Likely increased exposure, credibility, get to have my quality (and inevitably, those lacking much quality) posts attached to my real name.
Cons: Potential employers (particularly of the more conservative, up-tight variety) will likely have an issue with my liberal use of colorful language/attitude, opening myself up to inevitable ad hominem attacks, possible exposure of personal information against my will by a scorned acquaintance, etc.
So, friends, what do you think I should do? Please leave your thoughts in the comments.
