When I started my blogger account I thought it was going to be a breeze. Just fill in a small form and in seconds you have your own blog. However, one question on the form stumped me: on the Display Name: it stated, “Required: The name used to sign your blog posts.” To my horror, it occurred to me that I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use my real name. There isn’t any specific reason why I cannot per se; but I have a somewhat uninteresting name. I decided that I was going to use a pseudo name. However, making a decision was difficult. Pseudonyms can have various meanings, interpretations and connotations. I had not given it enough thought. Like an impulsive superhero using a bead spread for a cape, in the heat of the moment, I chose the moniker “Brain Fry.” To my demise though, some people took too much poetic license with it. Rather than focus on what I was stating, they focused on my moniker. In addition, I noticed that, due to our natural human condition of ‘typing lethargy’; Brain Fry was frequently gutted down to ‘BF.’ Thus, I just chopped it down to its applied acronym.
However, apparently “BF” can be an acronym for several different connotations (I will let you use your imagination). Some have chosen to make the inference known. Moreover, I have grown bored with my current moniker. I was considering unmasking your phantom blogger, but I thought I might give one more try. I came up with Beowulf.
There is nothing particularly special about the name; nothing that has some story behind it to link to me. Even the epic poem doesn’t have special ring to it other than some Christian connotations. In short, I just chose it; I don’t know why and I reserve the right to change it again. Nevertheless, it’s changed.
As everyone is aware, ‘typing lethargy’ demands condensing of the name. Thus, if you wish, you can refer to me as “wulf”, not to be mistaken as wolf!
