Priscilla, just created a new blog in an attempt to take the blog world by storm. When asked to pick a username for her blog she at first struggled but eventually she found the perfect name.

ExpressionsByDuck, it was so simple but yet it was also so profound. People all around would think, “A duck wouldn’t blog, who’s this genius… who is ExpressionsByDuck?”

I felt on top of the world, and more important I felt like the queen of the blog world. My first step in being the new queen of the blog world was to create an elegant greeting to my future minions… oh I mean followers.  Before I was done writing my message, I heard the ding of receiving a new message thtough the chat I was using.

“Hey! Did you get your blog setup yet?”

It was Amina, I responded as quickly as possible. 

“Yes I did, here’s the URL! Check it out.”

“Why is your username ExpressionsByDuck?”

“Uh because ExpressionsByMe was taken and ExpressionsByDuck is awesome!”

 “Why didn’t you use something that involved your name?”

“Amina, we both know that my name sounds like a very old British mans name…”

“What no it doesn’t?!?”

“Um yes it does… it sounds like I should be writing a blog about things that only happen to old British men…”

“Hahaha well that sounds like an interesting blog, but I still disagree…”

“Well we’ll agree to disagree I guess, but wait did you ever come up with your blog name?”

“Nah I’m actually have been having trouble thinking of one… got any suggestions?”

“Yeah make it something that you like so that your followers can get an idea for what your about.”

“So bibliophile be a good username?”

“Um….”

“What…”

“What is that… it sounds like pedophile...”

“What!?! No it does not."

“Uh yeah it does.”

“No it doesn’t.”

“What is that even…”

“Bibliophile- a person who loves or collects books.”

“Oh… but how many people actually know what that is off the top of their head?”

“Well, most likely people who actually read… ;)”

Suddenly I heard my mother yelling for me to come down for dinner, so I told Amina that our argument was not over and I went down to eat. 

ExpressionsByDuck an old grandparent whose friend like books… alot

Priscilla, just created a new blog in an attempt to take the blog world by storm. When asked to pick a username for her blog she at first struggled but eventually she found the perfect name. "ExpressionsByDuck", the blog world wouldn't even know what hit them. Unfortunately though this username confused Priscilla's friend named and this generated a whole a debacle over the internet.
