I’m having an identity crisis! Sighs, it was kind of inevitable.
I was playing around with new e-mail addresses over the weekend, as soon, the e-mail addresses I currently use will be bearing Wrong Information. It’s in a name that will no longer be mine to use.
So, I set up a new one in my own name. I’m not starting using it properly yet, but began changing over to it for various sites I’m registered with. The BBC news, the various church-y things I get information from on a regular basis. Then ground to a halt.
My own name is way too unique! I still want to maintain a level of anonymity in the blogging worlds I meander about in, certainly for the time being, and there are three places where I’m known by different internet names. I didn’t quite mean for this to happen!! I registered with the Ship a long time ago, but only recently have begun to be more active there. I am praying for a name amnesty, so I can change my Shipname to Japes! That’s because the name I go by there, (No Socks) is related to a very, very long, but incredibly minor on-going saga of the life I’ve been leading, and again, will no longer apply. Maybe it will? Possibly. I probably will still go around in bare feet and wear sandals a lot, and still have people coming up to me in church, especially if I’ve been playing the organ in bare feet, asking if my feet aren’t cold without socks on?
Then, there’s the Other Blog! It was my first venture into the world of blogging, about three years ago, and I found myself choosing a name that was somewhat unwieldy. At the time, though, it was a very accurate choice. Now, it is no longer representative of who I’ve become and am still becoming. Yet, I’ve made some really good friends there, and don’t want to lose that blog. Just the name! It’s a really important place for me, as here is, and I will keep both going, as they satisfy different parts of me.
Japes, as a name, somehow, transcends the lot, and is much more applicable to the whole of my life, as it has been, and is becoming. But for now, whilst I’ve got other identity crises going on, I think I’ll keep them all going in the names they are in!
But, I did set up a new email address, just for blogs! It seems to be working….
