    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 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 ;).
