I only intend to post blog posts with a one word name (the name of the website), and so I am wandering can I just use my username??

Is this common amongst admin-bloggers to post using their username rather than any chosen name they might pick??

The reason I ask is because I do not know what username I would pick other than the one I intend to post with. The only possible reason people might not do this is for the added security of not showing your username.


One can find the username of post author in multiple ways. For example, yoursite.com/?author=1 may reveal the username. Even though, it is easy to find the username, it is still not recommended to keep the username for posts. However, it is okay to do so.
