Do you write under your own name or a pseudonym?

Anyone who wants to can probably find out exactly where I live, where I go and even what I have had for breakfast.

I write under a pseudonym because my own name is pants.

I've published stories under my own name. If I ever publish a novel I will also use my own name, so that my enemies will see it and gnash their teeth.

I think it depends what you are writing tbh. A friend of mine is a feminist blogger who has been approached by a number of 'real' publications asking her to do articles, and she uses a pseudonym because of the crap that women who write about feminism get ('I know where you live' type rape threats etc).
