Well, the “How do you pronounce my name?” survey hasn’t gone as I expected, nor the way my M-Network buddies would like it to have gone either. Lynnae over at Being was even going to send all of her readers over to vote for “Gibble”…my new nickname thanks to them! I’m thinking of recruiting another blogger to help me write articles…Their pen name will be “Bits”.

Seriously, when I chose Glblguy, I never really gave much thought to how it was pronounced…I just selected it as a short hand for “Gather Little by Little Guy”. Which leads me to something I would like to clarify for everyone. I often have people wonder why I blog anonymously. Some people are more direct about it and others just make indirect comments. I blog anonymously, not because I have anything to hide but because I work in the financial industry and I am concerned about my blog being seen as a conflict of interest by my employer. So while I don’t use my real name (no it’s not really glblguy or Gibble) nor do you know exactly where I live, all of the stories you read and information you have learned about me is 100% true.

Anyway, whether you call be Gibble, Global Guy, Gather Little by Little Guy, or whatever your brain reads glblguy as, I’m just glad to know you. I am also honored by the fact you visit my site and read my ramblings. Thank you.

    Even though the wrong name came out on top in your poll, you will ALWAYS be Gibble! :) My brain just can’t get that first “L” in there.

    Thanks for the links!
