I’ve been contemplating some things over the past few weeks about the blog and where I want to take things moving forward. Everything isn’t set in stone yet but there’s one thing I want to come out and say now.
Dylan Whittler isn’t my real name. I wrote a blog post about that here. I suggest you read it first and then come back.
No, really, go read it. I’ll wait here for you…
Did you read it? Did you understand why I did what I did? Good.
I wanted to go back to writing under my real name because… I miss it. I don’t like the idea of someone else—a pseudonym—taking credit for my words, especially as I’m applying for jobs in the editorial field, especially when those jobs ask for writing and/or editing samples. I hesitated, initially, with this decision because I’ve been published under my pseudonym. Nonetheless, I figured this was the right time and best decision for me.
So, allow me to introduce myself: My name is Rulonda JaBrey. It’s a pleasure to meet you.
