Today’s Daily Prompt asks:
When I first started my blog – many years ago – I called it “Alley Katt’s Blog”. This was because I used the pseudonym Alley Katt because of my name and shortening it, but rather than having Alley Cat, I chose the alternative version. When I was playing a game online, using the same pseudonym, someone asked me if I was male or female which disgruntled me.
After that, I changed it to Mondrak. This was a name I used in a role-playing game “Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play“. I used this name for years, and then three years ago this month, I had to change blog places again, so this time I chase a mixture of the two plus a play on words. You have the Katt from Alley Katt, you have the Mon from Mondrak, and put together in the form of Catamaran – Kattermonran.
I was also hiding who I was so there were no photos of me anywhere. In September last year though, I changed that. I put an old photo of me on, and I dropped the pseudonym to show who I really am and used my real name.
That’s how I chose my blog name and what it means to me.
