I Need Your Help in Defining Me

I just read a blog post about being consistent with my author persona when I'm online. The blogger/author, Anne R. Allen, suggested we ask our friends how we come across to them. It's hard to see yourself as others see you. So I'm asking you, my myLot friends, to help me define my public persona. I'm probably more myself here than anywhere else, though some of you also know me on other sites. Maybe if you know me on more than this site you can tell me if I'm consistent from one site to the other. Please be honest. It won't affect how I feel about you. I want to know how you would describe me to someone else who didn't know me. If someone asked you what they could expect from my posts if they followed me, what would you say? How would you describe my interests (besides writing), my personality, my characteristics, the tone of my writing to someone who did not know me? How do I behave when I disagree with someone? Is what I wrote on my profile here consistent with who I seem to be in my posts? If not, what differences to you see? How would you expect me to treat you if we met in person? I hope a lot of you will express your opinions because I have been advised that I should write publicly in a way that's consistent with my persona. Do I? To follow that advice, I need to understand my persona. Please tell me who I am online. This post was inspired by this post by Anne R. Allen: https://annerallen.com/2019/05/whats-your-author-persona/

I'm afraid I'm not very good about taking care of the house. I'm more likely to be taking care of the garden. Taking care of my husband takes a lot of my energy, even though it's not exactly a caregiving situation most of the time. I really do love to write, read what others write, and interact with people.
