Editing places near my house without being doxxed

Hi, I’ve seen stuff around my local area that hasn’t been added to OSM yet. I decided I would sign up here and edit the map to add them; but then I would be doxxing myself.

How can I edit places near where I live without doxxing myself?

Should I simply just not make such edits?

Should I make random edits all over the world (like tracing random houses from public-domain aerial imagery) so that the edits to my local area will blend in with all those other edits?

I really want to update the map; but my personal safety and privacy comes first.
