Friday Five - What's in a Name?

1. So how did you come up with your blogging name? And/or the name of your blog?
Well, my blogging name, MezzoSF, is a combination of my location and voice-type. As for my blog name "Random Laundry" ... it came from my very first blog post, which I just went and re-read - and DAMN! It's quite the tirade, if you ask me. Thankfully, in many ways, I am very different from the girl who wrote that entry almost four years ago, now.

2. Are there any code names or secret identities in your blog? Any stories there?
I try to use - or I've tried as of late - to use nicknames and initials when talking about other people. I have a couple of codenames for certain people (ex-boyfriends and the like). A lot of times, though, those nicknames are actually used in real life. For example, my brother and I really DO address each other as "Sibling" instead of using each others' actual names. It's pretty funny.

3. What are some blog titles that you just love? For their cleverness, drama, or sheer, crazy fun?
I'm partial to the title of yesterday's post, actually. It cracked me up when I wrote it. And puns...anything with puns or very pithy titles I love.

4. What three blogs are you devoted to?
Hmmm...how about let's do three categories of blogs I'm devoted to:
Real-life friends (see sidebar); Milblogs (again - sidebar); and further down, total strangers, whose blogs hold a strange power over me (can you guess? sidebar). I have a few updates to make to my sidebar. But probably not right now.

5. Who introduced you to the world of blogging and why?
AZ got me hooked to the blogging thing. I'm not sure why. Maybe she wanted someone to link to? Or to link to her? Whatever the reason...well...I've had fun thus far. Especially this year - the blog 365 thing has been more challenging than I thought it would be.

Bonus question: Have you ever met any of your blogging friends? Where are some of the places you've met these fun folks?Other than the people I was friends with before-blogging who now also have a blog...I have not! But I'm sure they are all quite wonderful people!
