someone I know once asked me why bloggers have other names.
Why do we use words other than our names to depict who we are?
Rather harsh in his judgement, he asked what we all are trying to pretend to be and why we have to divulge personal thoughts and details of our lives under pseudonyms and nicknames to the whole world. I tried explaining that more often than not, it has nothing to do with blurry anonymity because we mostly know who each one is and we write for various reasons but his decided lack of comprehension explained something that i knew all along- you can’t explain the blog world to someone who is not open to the idea.

So despite the evil forces of the universe not understanding this new way of shrinking our planet and encouraging some semblance of creative thought, this saturday at espresso, the blog world of nicknames came out alive as names got faces and faces got personalities in a meetup I cannot really do justice by writing about it- suffice to say, you just had to be there.
