We all want to be someone, someone to somebody.
A few weeks ago, I had a blogger that joined my blog. On a few occasions, that person would like my post and comment from time to time. No of the comments were off-putting, rude, or worthy of being deleted. That is until one day, the “blogger” wrote a false and triggering comment under one of my posts.
I quote, ” You are a whore; I saw you in a thong on one of your Instagram posts.” And that made me laugh!
I wouldn’t dare do that and for several reasons. One is my children follow me, and the other is my ass doesn’t sit as pretty as it used to, and lastly, Instagram doesn’t pay me to release this rump shaker!
So a long story short, I knew that someone was waiting for me to defend myself so that they could start a conversation. However, that was a conversation that would have been a waste of my time. But instead, it led my brain to wonder. How do we come up with our profile names?
Why did they choose that name
I couldn’t help but wonder why this person would choose the name someone. Do they not feel like they are someone in real life? Therefore they want to give off the illusion that they are just that. Fake it until you make it.
How I chose my name
There were two factors: my Aunt called me Belle, and she made it rhyme with my first name. Secondly, I was a dance minor and one of my instructors that I feared admired and gave my life to impress called me Belladonna. I LOVED THAT! And lastly, my husband said, “you have so many talents that you could share with everyone, and you could shine a flashlight on everything that you’ve been through.
I immediately thought I could show others how I stumbled with my health, fitness, and life. I would do this hoping that others can make better choices than I did. And that’s how Belladonna Flashlight came to life. It fits me, I’m sticking with it, and I love it more and more each day.
Tips for choosing a name
If you are one of many searching for a name, make sure you choose something that will stand out and be rememberable. It always helps if it’s easy to pronounce and sound out.
