What's In A Name?

What's in a blogger's name?
Too much according to DH. He's not thrilled about my blogging but "tolerates" it. Tolerates it means, whenever he sees me tapping on the keyboard he rolls his eyes and can't resist spewing out a mouthful about how blogging takes away our quality time and is a complete invasion of our privacy etc. etc.

He was rather upset about my username, saying if anyone who I knew from RL came across it, they'd know instantly it was me. I have to admit he has a point there. Not that I really care if a reader from RL could identify me - but it bothers him so now my blog name and my username are the same. Still me though =)

A blog friend pointed out something similar to me, so I scrubbed my site (and my email) of too many identifying characteristics. The internet is a big place, and you wonder how anyone could possibly find you, but you never know! ;-)

I hope the name change will mean your DH will be more accepting of your blogging. At least for me, it's been a big release. And yeah, my real name isn't Samantha, the only Samantha in my house is my cat! Sometime I'll have to put a picture of the real Samantha.

I like "Momcaster"! :-)

Mr. Kite is just glad I'm doing something rather than bother him while he's on his playstation.

I'm just glad someone in the family is blogging with me. And I enjoy your blog! I love it. So don't you go away.

Hmmm .. tricky .. My 2 cents is that maybe the hubby just doesn't want you to be vulnerable that way. I mean, we are spilling our guts here. But that aside, I think this is essential to our sanity .. it's like talking to yourself but with a sympathetic audience lurking on the sidelines. Maybe he'll understand later on where you're coming from. Hang in there!
