~~The Meaning Behind Your Blog Name~~
Actually, you might just find it a wee bit interesting…
When I started blogging back in 2005 I barrelled on ahead without doing any research or reading up on trends or how-to guides, I didn’t try to find out which would be the best place to blog (Blogger, WordPress, Typepad, etc) and I didn’t Google “how to start a blog”. When I realised I could do it for free, I signed up immediately and as a result I gave my blog the kakkest, most cliched blog title ever – “Angel’s Mind“.
A classic rookie-blogger mistake.
Once I realised just how much I disliked my blog title, I was already heavily focused on building a readership and I didn’t want to change that focus yet, and the longer I left it the harder it became to switch.
Then at the beginning of 2013 I decided I needed to get my blogging mojo back, and that a new name would be a part of that project.
Several names came to mind and my Glugster suggested a few – I’m not terribly clever when it comes to that kind of thing – but I settled on my current title: “Being Angel“.
It is what I do and it is what I am.
It feels right.
It feels like a far better fit than “Angel’s Mind” ever was.
It feels like me.
I did say you MIGHT find it interesting…
