In the blogging world we have total control over how much we share with people. We can be totally anonymous (though I bet that's really hard) or completely open to the whole world. We can use silly nicknames to discuss the people in our life, or we could use initials, abbreviations or just their names.
I choose not to share my family's names on my blog because I share my location and our photographs, I think there is such a thing as too much sharing...however I don't look down my nose at those who do. I have mentioned them on both Twitter and Instagram previously, however. My daughter is Moo because, weirdly, that's what she's called at home, or more often, her name followed by the word moo, as if it were double barrelled. I don't know why but I know she's not the only little girl with that name who gets called it! My son is Bear because for the longest time my husband wanted to name him Charlie (which I didn't like) and the only thing that kept springing to mind was 'Charlie Bear' so it sort of stuck.
My husband is simply that or 'Mister Teacup'...because the latter sounds funny!
I, as you know. Refer to myself by name...Clare, I do this because while anonymity is there to protect my family, I wanted to be as open and as honest about myself as possible.
Rambling over now!
