Identity: the distinguishing character or personality of an individual
So I was looking at my profile and it doesn't really seem to fit me any more. I call myself a jewelry designer. I even have a store where I sell my jewelry. But I haven't sold anything in like 6 months or added anything new to the store. I haven't had a piece in any brick and mortar stores in longer than that. And everything I make I just end up keeping for myself.
When I decided to stay home I said I was going to make a go of this jewelry thing but it hasn't happened. So I don't think I can really call myself a jewelry designer anymore.
So what do I call myself? I'm a blogger, but so are 500 million other people. And only 20 people seem to be reading this and no one really comments so I really can't call myself a blogger.
I could say I'm working on a novel. But then again isn't everyone who blogs? And given my readership do you really think anyone would read a book about a stay at home mom turned zombie fighter? Probably not.
I'd love to say I was a trapeeze artist or something cool like that. But circuses kind of creep me out and I'm afraid of heights. So no.
So it seems I am in flux right now. I don't have anything to put on my profile or on a business card (but maybe I shouldn't have a business card because whenever I get one, I leave my job within 6 months).
Since I am out of ideas, I've decided to run a contest. Whoever can pick out the coolest identity for me will win a pair of earrings from my store. It doesn't have to be realistic. It just has to sound cool on a profile or on a business card.
I'll keep the comments open for a week and the winner will be announced next Friday.
Author's note In honor of the contest I will actually be adding new earrings to the store.
