Have you ever sat down and actively tried to think of a cool username? As some of you know, I use the name liberty4all on twitter. It’s great and all, but I use it in other places too and I run into two problems. The first problem is that someone else also uses liberty4all as a username. This means that I sometimes I have to think of another username, which increases my chances of forgetting it and never logging in again by about 80%. The other problem is that people refer to me by my username. This drives me nuts for this particular name. I don’t know why.
Here are some names I’ve used in the past:
sugrhi27 (my first name on AIM, don’t remember the pwd now)
mysecretelixir (my favorite name on AIM)
edgarwarhol (and variations of)
secretelixir (and variations of)
passionaterain (and variations of)
With all these and more that I cannot recall at present, none have ever felt like one that I could truly embrace. None were ever applicable for every use. For some reason, I decided to go ahead and open usernamecheck from my twitter toolbar. This was a bad idea. I am now obsessed with finding a username that I can have that is completely not taken in any form.
This could take a while. I’ll let you know when it’s finished…
