Did you just use your name and surname? Perhaps a pseudonym? Or did you use something different than your name as a domain name? Why?
Some background: After working on a couple of business blogs, I'd like to start a personal blog. But since my name's spelling (and pronunciation) can be tricky to remember, I was considering using a pseudonym or some kind of variation of my name. Like Alexis.
Another option would be to use something different as a domain name. For example, if I talk about productivity and music I could call it "theproductiveartist (dot) com". But since the topics may change over time (it's a personal blog after all) I believe the name could become outdated.
I'd like to hear your point of view and how you did it, and perhaps get some ideas from that.
