Anyhow, adjusting to my new name hasn't been easy. To lessen the blow, just as much for myself as my Facebook friends, I initially changed my name to Betsy Blanchard Jorgensen. After a week of guilty, spineless Facebook visits, I decided the Blanchard had to go. Big gulp.
Good job, Bets. Metaphorical pat on the back. I then decided I'd better ride the tide and change my Twitter username while I still had the balls (er, guts, sorry mom).
And then, the worst thing possible happened. @betsyjorgensen was already taken, never used. Le sigh. It was painful trading my beautiful hard-won username for anything less (call me dramatic, but I take pride in my untainted 'betsyblanchard' Facebook and Pinterest URL claims, too), but I've now settled with @betsyjorg. And I like it.
All my cyber love,
P.S. In the next few days, I'll be unveiling a shiny new website I coded myself! I can't wait!
