Thanks to Bekka for asking me! It is a great honor and I join some smart, dedicated people.

One question I get often is "How do you say your name?" I used to say something ambiguous but, honestly, I now say "it's Johne with a silent vanity 'e.'" (My family and some of my oldest friends still refer to me as 'Johnny.' - you can go home again but you can't outgrow your nickname.)

Hi Johne, it is great to have you in the moderator team! I am not sure about being a Green Bay fan, but it could be worse. Could be Dallas  I am a Patriots fan myself.  😄 Its all good!

I understand. My birth name is very formal. As a child, most of those who knew me who were my age called me a shortened version of it. As I grew older, they used my birth name. In college, everyone knew me by that nickname from my childhood. Now, I am on at least my third go around with answering to the childhood nickname. 

 

Congratulations on you appointment.
