Why I went Incognito.
I have always wanted to be a part of a community, a group of people I call my own and know I relate to but I have never seemed to find my place in the world, I have a lot of likes and dislikes but my dislikes seems to stay fixed and my likes revolve lie a turbine engine. “IRL” (In real life) I have very few friends, right now at the age of 30 I don’t seem to bother about this, which makes me question myself if this is normal in my generation and the younger generations to follow. I have a family whom I love but is it “okay” to not crave friendship with others?
These days there are a lot of distractions and gadgets like the internet, phones, tablets, personal computers, smart watches, game consoles, e.t.c.
I don't seem to have most of these gadgets but I feel really preoccupied though out the day. As an entrepreneur one learns to depend on himself maybe this is also a result of self dependency, you tend to prepare yourself to meet with like minded people and avoid bias conversations with others whom you once considered as friends.
I used to be popular among my pairs, I guess I still am although I traveled far away from home and now live with my family I still fill the attention whenever I get on social media.
I have developed a passions for everything technology, I want to write, share my thoughts on various topics and insights, develop ideas and work with like minded people without the tension I feel whenever I want to post online. it is practically impossible as most people exploit this type of anonymity online and use it as a source for cyber bulling and shaming.
There is nothing wrong in the fact that I just want to be another index file, with no name attached, accepted for who I am, my work, and my contribution to humanity however small it might be.
When this idea came to me I thought about “Sia” the controversial song writer and singer of “Elastic Heart” and “Chandelier”.
She tried to go incognito in real life by wearing a wig over her head and face, which was quite effective. You could still do a google search and know how she looks but I bet if you should see her at the mall shopping you wouldn't know who she is.
Reducing the amount of unwanted attention.
This is the main reason why I have decided to go incognito online. Now I feel I am free to express my true self and be more creative.
