My New Name


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.
Molly!

Hi Molly! I know what you mean- I announced my real name on my blog recently too although my profile name remains the same I now sign off as myself and its a nice feeling. God Bless!

Welcome, Molly, I agree, there's tons of freedom in blogging with your actual name (but then again, it's the same thing that gets me in trouble with the liberals at the Archdiocese ;))

Oh my goodness I would have never guessed that you had a secret name. I am so glad you decided to tell us all that your real name is Molly. You definitely seem much more like a Molly. Thanks for opening up!!

I'm forever loving Molly...she is mommy's pretty girl...
Thank you for owning your name, it fits you. That's why I selected it my little Irish sweetheart.
