Identity

updated: October 2021

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.

My Anonymity

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 Location

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.

My family

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.
