I had never thought about pseudonyms at all before reading this. Obviously, I knew they existed, Mark Twain and such, but not how widespread their use is.

I do use my own name as a blogger and poet but usually use initials or nicknames for family when writing my blog to protect their privacy. I use my birth surname, so most of the family isn't revealed as their surnames are different; only people who know us "in real life" realize who they are.

If I ever decide to break into a new genre and need a pseudonym, I'll know to whom to look for advice!
