personal blog

In your personal blogs do you use your real names or nick names?
I initially used our real names then thought it would be better to use nick names but Damian thinks I should just use our real names and not complicate things. So im not sure what to do...

I use our first names for now - I figure that still leaves us fairly anonymous....I think its all personal preference - some people don't like to even post pictures of their children - its what you feel comfortable with...

I use my name and Brad's name, but not my kids. And I have a private blog for my kids pictures and videos. I don't have any photos of them on my page. I don't know how much that helps, but I don't really worry about stalkers. I'm more concerned with some sicko finding their pictures and reposting them in unsavory places.

I use our real names. If i were creative enough to come up with cute little names for everyone, I would. not for the anonymity so much as for the cuteness.

I use my real name and call my husband Dr. D. I refer to our daughter as Ladybug.

When I started out, i even used a fake name for myself. I'm starting to become a bit less transparent the longer I'm a part of the community.

I know! Spring Break my foot! It is so crazy. I'm new here, so it has been an adjustment for me.

I use our real names, and our last name is part of the blog address (how smart was that, ;(

Anyway, the way I "protect" our privacy is that mine isn't searchable through google, etc. However, when I started, I thought only family and friends would "follow" and now I'm connected with all of you wonderful folks, ;) ;), so who knows who's looking at it! I continue to be amazed at the people who start off with "I was reading your blog"... wow!

I use initials. I wanted to be able to write about the harder times and conflicts without embarrassing R or potentially negatively impacting either of our careers.
I feel through a little anonymity I can be more honest.
That said, I kind of want to post pictures! :)
