I would like to change my username. I started hubpages with the wrong intention which was to promote only. However after I got to know the live community and quickly realized hubpages is different from all other community I thought again as to the purpose of me being here. So unfortunately I am stuck with the name.
Reena, I can claim no special cleverness. When I started here, I was under the impression we were supposed to choose something other than our real names for our user names. I came up with this play on my name and my email address. You can call me Red (used to be a redhead, now back to natural blondness, pun intended, lol) or Elf - either will do and are close to my real name.
Hi Reena! I am new here, so it is nice to met ya! My "ONLINE" Names all are mostly taken from my given name, which is Carrie. I first got online in the early 90's. I was given the name SWEETPEA by the first friend I ever met online, but after 2 months time, I realized that was just "NOT ME" lol Late one night (More light early one morning, it was after midnight), I was bored, and went to shower and happened to decide to dye my hair. After the process was done, I blew my hair dry to see my exact NEW SHADE . Well, right there and then, my online name was born! I looked just like a CHERRY .... and I said OMG DAYUM THAT WORKS LOL CherryCarrie! It has served me VERY WELL. I can not even begin to convey how much gentlemen seem to be willing to give a girl calling herself "CHERRY" help /the benefit of doubt when things go wrong, etc etc!! *Snickers* lol I have a ton of online persona's but this is by far and away the one I am attached to and use most. Though I do use other variations (IE: CarriesNOCherry, CarriesSOCherry, CaliforniaCherry). And then ... sometimes my online pals simply are lazy, and just call me CC lol
Our Hub name is 2Patricias because there really are two of us, and we are share the name Patricia. In daily life one of us is called Pat, and the other Tricia. We write a website together, as well as writing Hubs. We are not very prolific Hub writers because we do a lot of other things as well. Our intentions are always good - we truly mean to produce more Hubs. Some of our Hubs are collaborative and others we do as individuals.
Rofl, Frogdropping, I remember a thread where someone kept saying "frogdroppings". =x Everytime I see your name, I envision frogdropping as a sort of a fascinating... dance? Drop like a frog? Perhaps that's where the drunkenness came in. One can only guess what you were doing while drunk at the time.
Bad Company, I just came across numerology not long ago and have some sites on that bookmarked. I'm still trying to figure that stuff out.
getpaidtopost, I understand that. I thought I'd use a pen name, but looking at the creative names on here, I wish I stuck with my usual "thisismyhappyface" or "Happyface" ones that I use on a lot of other sites or messengers.
That's my story right thar, Reena. How about yours? Pen name or real?
Jen is my actual name, and black sheep has two meanings: One is the common meaning of being a 'black sheep'; the odd one out. The other meaning is that it is the name of a squadron of stealth planes that I particularly like!
well...my inner jew means i wish i was jewish but since i can't be i have to just think i am jewish on the inside...i love israel and love the israeli people and i want to live there...so my name reveals and doesn't hide
I have seen a great many magnificent nicknames on the various sites upon which I post but I have always resisted the temptation to use one.
Why? Because particularly in the wake of Credit Crunch, online work is my business and I need as many search results to tie together as possible.
One of the best and most original nicknames I have seen - and it took me a long time to figure it out! - is the one used by he who posts extremely regularly by one pseudonym on Hub Pages but something quite different on Squidoo.
Great topic. Lots of creativity behind many hubbers' names!
I already had the name Mighty Pen for my business. When I joined Hub Pages I intended to write exclusively on family issues (actually, when I joined I could only think of one topic and it related to family). But "Mom" and "Mighty" seemed to go naturally and I tend to like alliteration.
Little did I know I'd soon be in good company with the likes of Laughing Mom and Triplet Mom and Gwendymom and MotherHubber!
I'm not sure why I chose this username other than the fact that I'm a girly girl! I originally tried girly_girl, but it was taken. I don't use this name on any other websites other than twitter and a few blog catalog type sites; everything is related to my online writing. Other than that, it's completely untraceable to my typical usernames on the internet and my real name. I never thought to use a pen name, but looking back, I wish I would've...would have been cool! I desire anonymity and my username provides that.
It is a description of me and was given by Big Issue Cymru magazine for the homeless in which I used to have a column back in '98 when I was living in the Ely council estate in Cardiff. That I was a Bard was correct because I write and perform songs and poetry. It became my stage name and I use it elsewhere because it is now well-established and because it was an accurate description when I was given the title.
thanks. its just that when i started hubpages, i thought it was going to be a fake get rich quick website. I didnt know I was going to like it, and so I didnt think at all about my name. Oh well!! Its fun to be here anyway!!
My nick reflects the fact that I'm a writer obviously, but it also hints at my political affiliation as well. I consider myself to be very "right-winged". By right-winged I don't mean I lean toward Fascism, as I don't consider Fascism to be a right-winged philosophy but rather just another style of leftist Socialism. I believe in very limited federal government. In fact I'm writing a blog about the whole "left-wing, right-wing" thing right now.
Moonchild is because I am a Cancer, and we are also called "Moon children" as that is our "ruling planet" as it were. Additionally, I have always had this love affair with the moon, this strange connection to it. I bought a beautiful painting while I was in Hawaii of a woman standing on cliffs by the water with this amazing full moon and I myself love to paint the moon reflected on the ocean. I own about 5 crescent moon necklaces. 60 is the year I was born. Thats about it.
Mine is simple enough. One of my hobbies is playing the tuba. As an undergrad at NU (the University of Nebraska) I played tuba in the marching band each of my 5 years there. Thus ... nutuba. (I still play tuba in our church orchestra and sometimes in local concert and brass bands). Cheers all, Joel
I wasn't even sure I would like this forum or any for that matter. So I used my dogs name Nikko and his propensity to snitch stuff and my interest in gem stones. I felt safe because no one I know would ever know it was me except they might be suspicious of the sarcasm. I think this is a great forum and enjoy all the opinions and would never intentionally hurt anyone except my son who makes fun of me and runs and I can't catch him! I guess thats what they make rocks for. Peace.
