Mine is "celiacprincess". I still use it. It's part of my email address, the ID for my Facebook as well as the now obsolete MySpace, my Instagram username, my tumblr address, and a version of it (celiac_princess) is my twitter handle… the normal version was taken.
Yes, I did come up with a more "adult" username, and I have an email address with that in it, as well as using it for most of my school logins and things when anyone outside the GF world will see it. It has my name in it, so that makes more sense.
However, I continue to use and love my celiacprincess username. It's so much a part of who I am that I refuse to give it up. I justify this by saying that anyone that gets that email address KNOWS what celiac is, so it's really not an issue.
However. About a year ago, I created a new gmail account in the far too optimistic hope that I would make a YouTube channel (spoiler alert: it didn't happen). That's where cassidylikescupcakes came from. I wanted my name, but also something catchy. And I DO like cupcakes.
So with that in mind, I created this blog. Recently, I've thought about switching over to a gluten free blog, but then I'd want to switch my username/web address… kind of keep everything uniform. Ultimately, I might still do that, eventually, but for now, I'm going to keep this blog as it is and any GF blogs I type up will just have "celiacprincess:" in the title (until I figure out how to move them to a subsection). They'll also be tagged both "glutenfree" and "celiacprincess". Fair enough? Cool.
That said, it won't be a strictly GF blog. I'm way too indecisive for that. There are things I want to say and if this is the place to do it, then I don't want to be limited to just GF posts.
That's all for now. I'm going to go work on my first actual gluten free blog post - one about my recent road trip to Austin for the Gluten Free Allergy Free Wellness Expo. I'll see you around!
*I don't know of anyone with that username. If it's you, good job. Also, I'm sorry.
