q & a: the story behind my username, content creator career pipelines, freelance pros and cons
what is the meaning behind your username vivthemole?
I believe in not over-explaining the names of things because I think it can undermine the charm of its oddity/mystery! I like when names of things aren’t overtly literal or make perfect sense. I like the idea of people receiving it as it is, allowing it to develop an organic sort of legitimacy. That said, I picked mole because of its clever triple meaning, each of which I feel some kind of personal connection to. Moles as in facial markings, subterranean animals and espionage agents. (But not the chemistry standard unit mole). And since the molehill is where the moles go to live, so that name was easy to pick out :)
