Well, do you write as "Jenn" or as "Jennifer" Brozek? I'd make that the determining factor for which to use if you change the journal name.

Keep this LJ as it is and create a www.jennbrozek.com website with some kind of pro blogging software like wordpress or something. Have your pro blog set to crosspost stuff to this LJ so that your friends can read both. That way you can post here for personal, there for professional.

Just my two cents. :)

YUP I agree with that idea, I think you'll be glad you kept both seperate if you do this.

for the second poll i chose to say other as a means to give you a space of time after you made your second lj before determining whether or not to abandon the gaaneden we are all familiar with so far.

for the first poll i suggested jlbrozek, since it never sems too wise to be overly precise in giving out information about yourself, especially on the internet. Yes, it's as a means of professional contact, i suppose, in which case i'm a little out of my depth, i must admit, but being strangely imprecise can have it's merits against those who don't care what your carreer is, only that they get enough vital information from you to establish your identity in their endeavors.

peace.

2 things:
I like the one where the name is separated. Doing this, from the perspective of someone that is dyslexic, helps in tracking the name so it does not look like a run-on word. With the "_" between the names, I can tell that there is 2 names there.

I think that some times there is just some personal things you would not want a fan to know about your personal life. This will help in keeping your personal life personal and lessen the "creepy fandom" people. Having 2 separate LJ's sounds like a great idea. Having some of your friends involved in both LJ accounts can be a benefit too.
