From now on my blog alias is going to be my last name, Conti. There are too many Mike's too count. Nobuddy wants to say "Haha great blog post, Mike." They prefer cool names like Ajax and Penny Lane and Machine. Why would I want to be Mike?
If you shout "Mike" in a crowd, 24 people turn around. If you shout "Conti", I'll turn to you and know you are trying to get my attention. I'll smile and greet you.
My friends don't even call me Mike. No one does, really. I introduce myself to people as Mike, yet 4 minutes later they say "Let me buy you a drink, Conti!" So I'm going with the change.
The reason I didn't start off as Conti is because I was afraid that revealing all that personal info would get me internet stalkers. People would steal my identity. Etc Etc. But I cannot live afraid.
So from now on if you see a hilar (short for hilarious) comment on your sweet blog from Conti, know its from me. The Blogger Formerly Known as Mike.
