This month is my turn to act as “managing editor” over at the Arkansas Women Bloggers site.  In the process of organizing and linking to about 100 blogs in the past two days, I’ve noticed that a lot of bloggers have assigned aliases to their family members.  Perhaps just for fun, or maybe to protect anonymity, or maybe because everyone else is doing it.  For example, my friend “The Park Wife” blogs about her husband, “Big Buckaroo” and her two “Little Buckaroos”. This is actually a witty play off of the family name, which I will not reveal. Kim at What Am I Going to Be When I Grow Up? calls herself Kim, but her husband is “Burly Surfer Dude” (or BSD for short) and her daughters are “Big Ballerina” and “Little Ballerina”. Over at Chasing My Bees, the author’s daughter is “Ladybug”. I’m assuming that’s not her real name, at least.

So, this is a blogging practice that I have not followed, partially because good nicknames for my crew don’t immediately spring to mind.  And I was just wondering – do you have any good ideas for blog aliases?  I will think on it too, and get back to you…  I don’t think Craig would appreciate “Dish Pan Man”, but it has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
