Question about personal website-- should I use my full name as my domain/ dotcom?
I'm just recently getting into the online realm of illustration and art. I'm creating a web comic and want to link it to my personal website/blog, BUT I am only an amateur at art and illustration. I make no bones about that-- in the "about" section of my web comic I claim that its chief purpose is to allow me to grow as a web artist. After a year of updating/adding to it, I feel I will be ready to begin a new, more serious and personal epic of a web comic.
At the same time, I'd like to have a personal website chronicling my adventure in development, little tricks I learn in photoshop, local art venues in my city, cool links I find, and so on. The only thing though-- for the personal website, I am unsure if I should put my full name as the domain. Namely, www.myfirstmiddleandlastname.com.
The reasons why? As I'm only a noob, most of my creations are obviously the work of an amateur. I fear in a few years when I am finally good, my old stuff will be derived/made fun of. I'm also a little worried about that now; anyone from my aunts to people from around town to old girlfriends may look it up and roll their eyes at what they see. There is certain comfort that comes with anonymity.
I've actually created a website with my full name as the domain, but I'm afraid to use it. Tis brings me to my first point:
Can I blog and have it both personal and impersonal? I fear of putting too much of my personal life onto it. But having a name to my personal journey might make for compelling reading. What do you guys think?
What do you think of the fantastic gigididi, creator of the fantastic web comic Cucumber Quest? She's running successful kickstarter programs, all with anonymity, and little personal blogging.
