Everyone in the blog world knows me as Rita, but my real first name is Molly. Rita is my Confirmation name. When I first started this blog I thought going by Rita would be like a new identity. Don't get me wrong, I like who I am, but I now realize that I've been hiding behind the name Rita when posting, insofar as it allowed me to state opinions without making them my own.
So from now on I'm going to step up, & step forward, as me.
