    Re: Brand Yourself, Brand your Forum Nickname and Brand your Business Name

    I really don't remember when I read it, but when I joined MOL I was always impressed that Mike used his real name, that ment I always knew him and made all his post kind of personel. It impressed me so much that to this day I always use my real name on all forums. Being that my name is such that it is, sometimes its good sometimes not so good, but I promise that I did not use steriods. HEHEHE. See what I mean. Mike I think its a great idea, and you convinced me a long time ago. Oh and being that I'm 58 years old I was him before he was.

    Re: Brand Yourself, Brand your Forum Nickname and Brand your Business Name

    Good read Mike! I don't post by my real name but if this was my profession then there would be no doubt it is the only way to go. As it is I first picked a nickname back when xbox live came out. I'm not really busy on the forums and Autogeek is the first one that I frequent. So anyway when Xbox Live came out they requested you create a "Gamertag". Now therre were a couple reasons not to use my own name on there. The first of which there are some real suspect characters! Better safe then sorry! A little bit of risk and absolutely no reward (for my situation at the time) Anyway, I just decided to use a name that some guys that I worked with in my youth had given me and the rest was history. After reading your article and thinking about it I suppose on this particular forum there isn't any reason I shouldn't have used my real first name but as you made reference to I am leary of putting myself out there unless there is a reason.

    As always-Thanks for the read!

    Well my last name is Raskovich and I've always gone by the nick name Rasky. I started out on a Yamaha forum when I had my R1 and I've always just kept it as RaskyR1 on all the forums.

    Mike, thanks for including my Shop in your outstanding article. Even after 8 years we still get compliments on the "cleverness" of the Brand. Most importantly, it is very memorable.
