Let me say this: I admire the way a lot of you have given interesting names to your blogs. And I wonder how you came across them.
I started off a little over two years ago, with Blogger. In those days, I didn’t even know what my blog was going to be about –I still am not sure it is about something.
When I created my first blog, I was asked for a name, didn’t know what to write, but as they said that I could easily change later on, I think I started off with my blognotes. Then, googling that, I saw that if was far from being an original idea, and changed for Blogging in Paris, thinking: OK, I’m blogging and I’m in Paris. At least it’s true. And I can always change later on. I even tried to create some sort of logo, or image that would have my name or maybe the Eiffel tower in it. Miserably failed! Oh well, I can take photographs, but logos? They’re beyond me.
And it turns out I never changed later on, just for lack of finding a smart name! I came across some really interesting names, like Time Goes By (whose timeline I shamelessly stole, with Ronni’s permission), or Some Final Thoughts (why didn’t I think of that?), even learnt some new (to me) words, like Endment, discovered an interesting concept in a title like The Other Side.
Once somebody wrote in her blog (a French blog), that I was a sixty-year old blogger (at the time, since I’m almost sixty-two) and that my Mom also had a blog. I was thrilled to be mistaken for Millie’s daughter, quite honoured in fact, although she was too young to be my Mom –or me too old to be her daughter! Some names get me puzzled, like Off on a Tangent –what’s a tangent anyway? But a good puzzling title. I could go on forever…
But here I am, still Blogging in Paris, still wondering what this is all about, but having fun. May be I should add a new category to my blog: Babbling? 😉
- I took the photo of the Reading Room at the British Museum in April 2005. An amazing place. I should probably have looked up for a good name in one of those awe-inspiring books.
