I was kindly nominated for this award at the end of May by Sharon on her Allotment Life blog, and which I mentioned a few weeks later in this post. I notice that I said on her post that…it may be a while before I get round to doing it but I won’t forget. She replied…it took me more than two months to get around to doing it – you surely can’t be worse than that.
Well clearly I can! So with due apologies and no excuses here are seven facts as much about my online persona as my real self.
My original online name was Flightbuff which I chose to reflect my lifelong interest in aviation and when I first googled it whilst wondering what to use I found, much to my surprise, that it showed no results.
Needless to say fellow bloggers soon starting calling me Flighty, and I’ve been happy to use that ever since. Thankfully I rarely have to point out that I’ve never been flighty, as in being fickle or frivolous.
My Flighty avatar has always been the same one. It’s a picture of James Stewart when he was a bomber pilot serving in the USAAF during WW2. He’s my favourite actor who I’ve long admired, as well as being a distinguished pilot and fine man.
My other online name is Sofaflyer, which is my Twitter name. This originates to when I used to settle down on the sofa at home to read an aviation book or magazine. I’m not sure if it was mum or me who first used it. I sometimes use this book and glasses picture along with the name.
Sofa flying enjoying reading a good book, along with a cup of tea and a couple of digestive biscuits, has long been one of life’s best simple pleasures.
I’m not one for change so this blog has only had one theme change, and that was down to WordPress not me. Being a bit of a minimalist I like a clean, uncluttered look which I like to think this blog has.
I’ve used the same PC desktop picture for as long as I can remember. It’s of Samantha, one of Nikkipolani‘s cats, when she was a kitten. I’ve always liked cats and dogs although I’ve never owned either, which I do sometimes regret.
As usual with such awards I’m not going to nominate anyone.
Have a good weekend!
