As Daphne (that’s right I said Daphne, NOT Dixie) said on twitter we are out of the metaphorical closet. You see when we starting this blog almost two years ago (WHAT? When did that happen?! July will really make two years?) we weren’t sure if we were going to keep it up. We loved reading other blogs and thought why the heck couldn’t we start our own but we both tend to have flightly tendencies and that doesn’t always add up to success. So since we weren’t sure if we were sticking around we decided to post under alter egos so to speak to protect ourselves from backlash or if we just got lazy and gave up.
Well low and behold we are still here. I’ve been talking to A LOT of people about this lately because I feel horrible talking to our blogging friends under a false name. So as I get to know a new blogger I have to explain the situation. I don’t want any blogger (or blog reader/follower) to feel we lied to them because we love all of you guys and how welcoming you all have been and we want to talk to everyone as ourselves. So with all that being said my name isn’t Maggie, it’s Kristina or as so many people love to call me (and I don’t mean that in a sarcastic way), Kiki. I answer to both so feel free to use them. So let’s laugh and move on like this never happened.
The Blogger formally known as Maggie,
I don’t know why we ultimately decided to post under pseudonyms, but when we were coming up with names, we wanted something southern sounding. I went with Dixie because it was so old-fashioned and obnoxiously southern, but over the course of a year and a half, I really have come to appreciate my alter-ego. I will miss Miss Dixie and she’ll always have a place in my heart. Now I’m just plain old Daphne (which is a great name in it’s own right, but I’ve lived with it all my life, so you can understand that I am a little bored with it). Anyway, thanks for visiting with us and hopefully this will help us to get to know each other better.
