How do you refer to your SO/FI/Spouse? I’ve been blogging for a little over a month now and refer to Mr. Menard by his first initial. I hate how it reads though because his first initial is “A.” Sometimes it just looks like a typo. He says I can use his name but I don’t know how I feel about it.
Do you use a nickname? initials? their real name?
What about yourself? Do you have a nickname or do you use your real name? initials?

I use our real names. It is a blog that mostly close friends and family members read though. But when I speak of other people–even if it’s a sister or a student–I always use initials. I feel like it’s okay… no worse than Facebook or anything. Those publish wayyyy more info. And it’s not like I blog about my address and phone number!
I do love the Bee style of using their “avatars”! I just wouldn’t do it on a personal blog.

I use both of our real names. His name is RC so it’s already broken down into initial’s 🙂 but I read lots of blogs where they refer to their SO as the first initial.

I use my real name, but I use a nickname for my Fiance. He wouldn’t really care if I used his first name, but I started doing it and I feel like it stuck.

I use nicknames for myself, my fiance, and virtually everyone I mention in the blog. I’m Minutiae, he’s MinMan, etc. There’s no reason readers should know our real names, and I don’t want anyone google snooping.

Everyone gets a nickname, I don’t refer to anyone by their real name.

i’ve been using a nickname for myself so far.
@Minutiae: i definitely worry about google snooping. mostly from his crazy ass family. his name is common & i don’t mention last names but my name isn’t common at all.
i guess i should come up with really cool nicknames for other people (:

I refer to him as his real name – my name isnt on the blog and I also dont have any reason to refer to myself in 3rd person!

I like to use nicknames because then I can add a little humor (like seeing Crazy Naked Man on the corner again, or having to avoid Bad Breath Worse Tupee Boss all day).

Before blogging for the ‘bee, I used initials for myself and Mr. Spaniel, and nicknames for other people (which ended up becoming initials if the names got used enough). After I became a blogger here, I went with the avatar name for both of us (though if I’d picked Cola, which I considered, I would have had to have called Mr. S., “Mr. Bottled Water” because he won’t drink soda ;).
