Just a very quick note, a recent epiphany –
If you’re planning to be around here as a regular reader for the long-run – please, call me Jane (or Jan).
As much as I am Jandoe, totally don’t mind being called that and have been since the day I debuted my presence in the World Wide Web wherever that I leave footprints, it feels rather awkward and strangely impersonal around here when we’re potentially brewing a friendly courtship. You’ve probably seen my recent sixth anniversary entry – that pretty much confirms I am sticking around here… indefinitely. Possibly forever – whatever that’s defined by.
Maybe we’ll be friends in the long-run, you know? Or strike blogger-reader affiliation, that’s cool too. Cooler even – strike random, possibly thought-provoking and or spazz-worthy conversations. I love two-way interactions.
So if you’re sticking around and will – if not now – let your presence be made around here, let’s shake virtual hands? This isn’t my real name – that starts with N and the spelling and pronunciation are bizarre and don’t match, to say the least (long story) – but I’ve always been fondly known, respond to and go by Jane :) Or Jan, as my mum loves to call me because those are the last three letters of my real name.
If you’re not gonna or still feel more comfortable – or have simply gotten used to – calling me by my pseudonym, well… I’ll respect that. We can still be friends, I’m sure!
Cheers, Jan(e)…doe? Kidding. Jandoe, Jan, Jane – N, ha. Okay, I’m weird.
Have a lovely Thursday!
