I have been asked a gazillion times: “is it Julie or Julia?” And I was recently told [by the very confused, considering how darned smart he is, Jon Box] that I should blog this. So here is the answer.
I am “Julia on paper” - birth certificate, business cards, bank accounts, credit cards and every where else that I try to give the impression of being a grown up. It's my real official name.
But I have been called “Julie” my entire life. So that is what I refer to myself and what I am used to being called.
If you saw me on the street, or perhaps across a crowded room at PDC and called “Hey, Julia!”, chances are that I won't even turn my head, as it won't even register that someone is calling me.
