Why I Changed My Display Name
I recently changed my display name from Jack’s Shack to just Jack. On a different post I was asked what prompted this change.
The history of Jack’s Shack has a number of layers to it, each of them having to do with memories of special times and places. One of them was a bar that I used to frequent on and off. The Shack was a lot of fun and I carry it with me to this day.
However in the 2.5 years that I have been blogging I have learned that there is a less than savory definition tied into my former name. I feel kind of naive admitting this, but prior to blogging I was completely unfamiliar with it.
I am many things, but prude is not one of them. This blog travels in many directions some of them coarse and crude but that is not the focus of it.
Anyway, I changed it because I was irked by the association and images of the other name.
