Facing An Identity Crisis Head On

It still befuddles me a little that I made up a Twitter name one day — @JPlovesCOTTON — to show my personal connection to agriculture and give off positive vibes, and years later that is how many people know me. It wasn’t part of a master plan — I wish I was that smart back then! For me, JPlovesCOTTON was a way of capturing my name, a bit of my personality and the part of farming I was passionate about.

JPlovesCOTTONSomehow, along the line it became a way of capturing my identity. And with the fun-loving friends I have, I have had a series of suggestions for me to change my Twitter handle — Brent has long suggested I should be @JPlovesALMONDS, a certain tech dude created a @JPlovesWOOL Twitter account that sometimes chimes in about another natural fiber or something else of witty origin and today I got this suggestion via Twitter.

That sort of leads to a bit of an identity crisis and yet it shows that I’ve got a lot of things that I think about awesome in the world! So, what I want to know is if you could fill-in-the-blank for me, how would you have me defined? @JPloves______! That’s what the comment section is for!

I am fine with ideas to change but have to admit that I sort of like the moniker I already have! 🙂

      Hmmmm…. the last one makes me sound… hmmm like I get around too much, especially combined with that lead in but you may be onto some that truly represent me anyway! LOL

    Sorry – no change – I love JPlovescotton.

    But if you have to – travel would be my first choice :-). Ag my second.

      Glad to know I have support for my favorite fiber!

    Oh, you said “loves” … Right …

    • Janice Person March 13, 2014 at 11:51 am #

      BAHAHAHA I at least like the smell of coffee…. And I don’t hate it, I just don’t like the taste. I understand it has a perfectly good spot in the world though!

    I don’t see changing it…. but if you did, I’d vote for JPloveAg

    • Janice Person March 13, 2014 at 5:11 pm #

      🙂 I think I’m staying… love my ambassadorship for my favorite fiber!

    Because your life encompasses travel, bbq, cotton, agriculture, people, social media – so many things. And it rolls off the tongue fairly well.

    • Janice Person March 13, 2014 at 5:10 pm #

      and did you know that’s the name of my YouTube channel? IT IS! 🙂

      • brandibuzzard March 14, 2014 at 11:48 am #

        I actually *didn’t* know that was your YouTube channel but I’m giving myself a pat on the back for the intuition!

  9. Meg Kummerow March 13, 2014 at 6:22 pm #

    Jploveslife is my pick!

  10. PythagoreanCrank (@PythaCrank) March 14, 2014 at 1:42 pm #

    JPlovesPeople hand down. My contribution though might be JPlovesSelfies. 😉 I mean hey, it works with the former!
    But no, don’t change a thing!

    • Janice Person March 14, 2014 at 9:55 pm #

      LOL! So far, I haven’t had anything too compelling and I really like JPlovesCOTTON but I have to say JPhasacomplicatedrelationshipwithSUGAR does make me laugh hard!

What are you thinking?
