    Default HOW did you.....

    ....choose your user name?

    Pretty obvious reason for mine...it is my name. I could not believe when I registered here and it was available!!

    ...Do you always use the same username at every website you are registered with?
    I generally do not. I am only active scrapbookwise at this site, but registered with several others at which my name has never been available, so I have various nom de plumes. I sometimes have used the title of my favourite linedance at the time, or an old house name, or part of a book title, or my middle name, or various combinations of my initials, such as Jay for J.....

    What is YOUR story?

    heeh cute Jill. It makes me want to know some of you line dance or book title names and how do you ever keep track of all of them?!
    My husbands nickname has been Cake for a long time so after we married and had children I started scrapping and thought MamaCake fitting

    That is such a cute story Mamacake...thank you for sharing, (and shhhhh...don't tell but I keep a little secret booklet with my various nom de plumes listed) Mostly I only go to the other sites to "stickybeak" (an Aussie term for being a tad nosey)at other LOs so I don't have to log in.

    Mine is my initials and birth year - yeah, I'm real original! Haha

    Most of the time use the same as here JMC1988 but if that is not available I use JMC2688 which is my initials and birthday

    My username is a silly story. Sometime around 1997-8, my best friend and I were sitting around chatting. I was telling a story and I guess I was clapping my hands for emphasis. She started making fun of me and calling me Happy Clappy. When I got my first email account, I started using hclappy and the rest is history. I'm generally hclappy everywhere. There might be a site where my username is jen_is_hclappy or something similar. I need to see if I've scrapbooked that story...

    Oh and also my dad has always made fun of my username, saying it reminds him of an STD (the clap) So there's that...

    Caylynn was the name of one of my characters in a role-playing game (yes, I'm a geek *grin*). So when I started joining forums, it ended up frequently being my username. When Caylynn is taken I often pick Caylynn72.

    My name is Tracy, but nobody who knows me well calls me that. I've always been Trace. So when I introduce myself to people, I say it's "just Trace". Rhymes with Face.

    My dad called me Missy my entire life until he passed away. I've never used it as a nickname or any forum name. It's too special to me.

    I have the same name at other sites I visit.

    I have the username Pippin on all sites where I'm active. The reasons for my username are several: I love Lord of The Ring, where there is a Pippin, my hubby most often calls me Pippin and Pippi is swedish for birdie and I love birds.
