I don't know if you all knew that I use pseudonyms for my kids on this blog or not but the fact is, I do. Ive mentioned their names on other blogs and comment sections so Im not too strict about it, but it just seemed weird to be telling the world all of these personal details about them and actually sharing who they really are. The problem is that it is really freaking hard to remember to use them. Last week after working on a post, I even called Josiah by that name. His real name is nothing like that, I mean they share one letter. I often have to correct a name before I publish a post because Ive forgotten to use it. The names that I use on here are their middle names which were only chosen in the first place to compliment their real names. Using them by themselves just doesn't work, for me anyway.
So my question to you is how do you handle this dilemma? I know some of you use initials or middle names or even cutesy nicknames. If you do that, what made you decide to use whatever names you chose? Or even better, do you use your real name in your blog or is that a pseudonym as well? Personally, I use my real name. Ive always loved my name and don't want to hide it. I also love my kids' names (well except Michael's, but that's another story) and Id like to share them here but I wonder about it still. Anyway, comment away peoples and let me know your opinions...um, please. ;)
