Who am I again?

Hi there - let me introduce myself. It's the same old me, g, but I'm changing my name.

It's not easy being a single, lowercase letter in the internet. Some sites don't let you in without a minimum of three digits. It's also hard for people to see you're also a hyperlink.

Plus, there's another, more well-known upper case G in the bloggy world, and don't mean to steal her thunder.

I chose my moniker "g" a few years ago while spending a lot of time on political sites. It's non-gendered, mysterious, cryptic. Perfect for those political arguments where you don't want it to get personal. But not very welcoming on an individual blog. So I've returned to a name I used before "g" - when I first ventured out to explore the wide wide world of the internet. It was my first choice, because I identified with it deeply.

My new/old name is "Aunt Snow" - in honor of my great-aunt, my grandmother's sister. I share her name as my middle name. You can read all about her here.

Uh-oh. Someone's going Hollywood! Please remember all of us little people as you climb over us on your way to the top of the heap.

Or: It's about time you got back to your roots!

Good assertive move either way.
