Name of the Blog
Originally, I chose the name “Stroke Survivor” deliberately, because I am, well, a stroke survivor. The original purpose of the blog was to maintain a diary of my recovery.
Over time, I have come to write less and less about my health and the content of the blog had morphed into a far wider range of writing. Therefore, in May 2020, I changed the name of the blog to Mister Bump. I felt this was a more abstract reference to the stroke, but still a reference.
It’s not a big thing, but I’d prefer to be anonymous. I feel that allows me to write on the broadest range possible, with less fear of upsetting family or friends.
My nearest city is Salisbury, UK, but for the same reason, I guard my exact location.
I describe my exact location (omitting the names) is a little more detail here.
I have a wife and a daughter, neither of whom has agreed to be in this blog, and I protect their identities more than I protect my own.
