Not putting Real Names as Screen Names - Justified??
Modified Description -
I wanted to start this thread to check what are the trending reasons people choose a nickname/screen names while being on social websites...
Reason: Modified Description
I believe maximum of us blog to let others know of ourselves, our feelings and out creations. If we hide our names from others, will it serve the true purpose of us? Now, If we just want to write what we want and hide behind anonymous names; writing a diary would be better than blogging.
For those, who write stories, poems, recipes and other forms of creativity, I strongly feel that others should know their real names. If someone intends to write a book or novel, he must reveal his name in order to create a Brand Value of his name, which will reep him benifits of it when his book is published on account of its already earned popularity among readers.
Asking with simplicity, why to hide our names and produce another identity in the mind of our followers when we have a real name? Most of the people who are famous in the world are known by their real names.
Writing with pseudonyms has always been a trend, even when blogs did not exist. For few people, it just might be a style icon and for few others, it might be some compulsion. For example, their company policies.
At the end of day, its just a personal choice.
I am using this nickname since 11 years of age. I am...25/26 now. People recognise me with my nickname over my real name. I use it because its cool. If one is using a nickname, he doesn't use it to hide his "real identity"- he does it simply because its cool.... Why is it wrong to use nicknames??
Sorcerer - It may seem to be a philosophical questions, but how do you define 'coolness' of your nickname?
How can coolness even have a defination? If you like something, you like something. Not everytime you should have a reason to like something. I like calling myself as The Sorcerer.
Well !! I find no offense in using so called pseudonyms .
Come on its just ok !
I don't know whether this is justified or not, but I'm against keeping nicknames.
