Hello, all. I questioned whether to post on this topic but I feel it will save confusion down the line so here goes:
I have decided to use the name Fritzi in the future. Adopting a pen name was quite a decision but here are some reasons why I decided to take the leap.
1. It’s a tribute
Of all of my family, my German grandmother most personified the 20’s. Her golden Marcel wave was flawless. She was adorable! So the name Fritzi is for her. Fritzi Scheff and Fritz Lang were also on my mind when I chose it.
2. It’s a persona
Some people spill their guts on their blogs. I feel that I very much adopt a persona. My goal is to mimic the freewheeling style of 1920’s entertainment reporters. The new name lets me burrow deeper into that role.
3. It’s cute
The name Fritzi just makes me smile. It’s cute and different but not unrecognizable. It’s easy to pronounce and it has a Z. When I started blogging, I was not exactly sure of what direction to take. I slowly realized that I was most comfortable with cute and I feel the name matches this goal.
So, this is the introduction of Fritzi. Enjoy!

I like it! very snappy. Been considering re branding myself actually. Been feeling something a bit more serious is needed.
Thanks so much! Yes, as blogs grow, the brand sometimes needs a little tweaking. Definitely true in my case. Have fun with that rebranding!
Eh, it’s feeling more like a chore. I’ve been messing around with the visual themes, and backgrounds for weeks. Plus there’s a thin line between intelligent sounding, and pretentious. Hmm.
Agreed! It’s difficult. You could always call yourself The Thin Line in response to that 😉 Looking forward to what you come up with!
I like it! It suits your blog very well. I thought about adopting a pen name when I first started my blog, but I couldn’t come up with anything decent. I’ve also thought of changing the name of my blog to something less generic than “The Motion Pictures,” though I don’t think I ever will because it would entail rebuilding my huge index and going through almost 600 posts to remove any reference to “TMP”… that’s a lot of work!
It took me a solid two weeks of work to rename my site (and I only had 100+ posts at the time) so I can definitely see what you mean! 😉
I approve of this. It really does capture the era of the Jazz Age.
Thank you so much! I have been dashing about saying “Fritzi Kramer, girl reporter!” all day! 😉
Ha! That is perfect!
