Would a blog by any other name smell so sweet?
Imelda, the GreenishLady, has mentioned a giveaway by Peta of createcraft. Peta is giving away some goodies including a scarf "just in time for winter" (she's an Australian blogger rather than a slow knitter) to a randomly selected commenter to her "what's in a name" post provided they leave a link to their explanation for their blog's name. So here are two for the price of one:
My name is Caroline. When I first started to live in shared accommodation and had to label things as mine I normally just wrote Caro on them. So it wasn't a huge leap to think I might call my blog Caro's something... something to do with writing and drawing... how about Lines? :-)
Jim started a blogspot blog in April - he's called it JimPulse. He decided on the name by looking at words that started with im- that he could put a J in front of. He decided that both impulse and the Pulse part were rather good... certainly better than JimpLied or J-imPoster... though he did rather like Jimpact too.
If you want to join in write up the reason for your blog's name on your blog and then post a link to it over at Peta's.
