Who Am I?

I first took the screen name Skittles when I was on IRC (internet relay chat). I used it when I joined Pogo Games. When I started blogging, it seemed natural to continue its use.

It's almost time to renew my domain name for my blog and I've been thinking about changing it to something else.

I was talking about this with my hubby this morning. (He took a vacation day today.) I told him I don't feel like I'm a Skittles now. That I feel removed from that nickname. It's not who I am anymore.

He asked, "Who are you then?"

That simple question made me stop and think. Who AM I? I'm not sure I know the answer to that question. But I need to make a decision soon about the name and URL of my blog.

Any ideas, suggestions?

Garsh... I think I'll always kinda consider you Skittles... cuz that's the famous person who commented on my blog way back when ;-)

Hmmmmm... I'll think on this... in the meantime, go hug your Banana
;-)

LOL! Go hug your banana???? I think I missed something....

I couldn't think of you as anything else other then skittles either...that would be hard.....

My internet handle has been Elijahssong for so long, that i would feel bizarre changing it...I think it has been 11 years...

Misty: Now I have to explain about my Banana and everyone.. I mean.. 3 or 4 people will know. My puppy's name is Hannah "Banana" Rose. :)

Robyn: Maybe I'll stay being Skittles and change the blog's name?

Queen: Ditto what I said to Robyn. :)

Lucy: Good and Plenty huh? My hubby might disagree with the "Plenty" part..

Carolina: I was an Ingrid Bergman, remember? :P

Well, I was able to switch from being "DearestPrincess" to "SilverNeurotic" without too many problems....

Skittles said...

silver: That's quite a switch!

Misty Dawn said...

I still say you should be a symbol!!! YEAH! A really COOL symbol... and make everyone refer to you as "The blogger formerly known as..."

*mumbling to herself as she goes back to packing for the basket now*

Tammy said...

Hey I was just going to say the blogger formerly known as Skittles!!! Misty you stole my idea!!!

It's past my bedtime and I am short on ideas at the moment, but I love that CSI song... I used to think it was written specifically for that show - love the show too!

I like Skittles... but if you're looking to change, it should be something meaningful to you.

Good luck!
