Written in response to the Daily word-prompt ‘Later‘
Occasionally I look at the sites of fellow bloggers and I wonder if everyone is who they appear to be. My overactive imagination kicks in and I proceed to give people a number of new identities. So who are you?.
When it comes to profile pictures some of you prefer to remain anonymous and choose a cartoon character, a flower or even a view of the ocean or a mountain. My profile picture was blank for a number of months because I was nervous about showing who I was. Nowadays I’m more confident and I use my own photo. Or do I?
How do we know who the real person is behind the bio, behind the picture, behind the mask. I might be certain you’re a man, but how do I know? You could be a woman masquerading as a man and vice versa.
As for personal details the ‘About Me’, some of you say very little, others say a little more whilst some have nothing to say.
What about the main event, the ‘Posts’? There’s such a varied selection to choose from. Fiction, lifestyle, journalism, personal journals and much more. The personal journal for instance is another area where we have an opportunity to write about ourselves and say who we really are. Some folks give little away, whereas others give a little too much! As for myself and my own blog, it’s frequently lighthearted because I’m not a very serious person and I often give away little snippets of information about myself within a post. Or do I, is it really me speaking?
So perhaps the time has come for one of us on here to own up, to stand up and be counted and be honest about the person they really are! Sooner or later we have to do it.
Yep, this is me, the real me!

The History of April Fools’
On this day in 1700, English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition of April Fools’ Day by playing practical jokes on each other. www.history.com .Although the day, also called All Fools’ Day, has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, its exact origins remain a mystery. April Fools’ Day spread throughout Britain during the 18th century. In Scotland, the tradition became a two-day event, starting with “hunting the gowk,” in which people were sent on phony errands (gowk is a word for cuckoo bird, a symbol for fool). …..
