Might as well strike while the iron is hot. In my case, might as well write while I’m perked up. As the twitterverse is buzzing with #100factsaboutme, and I am tempted to join the bandwagon, I have to stop myself and focus on my blog.
But my post is still about twitter. It has been days now that I have been mulling over the thought of really changing my twitter name. I have been using @wandering_eneri for two years now but there are quite a number of reasons why I wanted to rename myself:
1. It’s too long. When I actually came up with my name, it was because this was the name people got to know me in a forum for RX931’s TMR listeners. I decided to retain it for the sake of name recall. And people had a hard time remembering how to type it when they’re using @tweetitow and even pronouncing it. :D.
2. Somehow it connotes negativity. At my age, I think I should not be “wandering” anymore. I believe there is a need for me to own the things happening to me at the moment and those that I want to happen in the future. Suffice it to say, I’m getting tired of my wanderings.
3. I know it’s unique but it’s boring. Okay, so maybe it’s not that boring. Maybe it just lacks the “oomph.” Whatever.
4. Having said that, I need a name that will clearly define me, that when I read it out loud, I can confidently say that “that’s me.”
So now, I’m on this mission of finding the “perfect twitter name.” Any suggestions?
