I was chatting with a friend one day who’d asked if I was on some website or another. I said that I was and that my username was such and such. But I realized later that I’d given him a username I was using on another similar site.
After a quick email to sort things out, I took an inventory of my various online personas and was shocked to find I went by no fewer than half a dozen different usernames. I had names from when I’d first gotten online, names from before my cartooning career, names after, names in various social media… It’s a lot to keep track of.
It didn’t take long after that for the above cartoon to occur to me.
