Wh...

I wanted to title this post "Why The Blog Name?" But as I started to type it into the little box, my previous entries appeared below...then I realized I had over 15 titles with "Wh..." as the beginning! Why the, where the, when can, who's, and that's not even counting all the how's! I think I'm beginning to see a trend...

Anyway, have you ever read someone's blog and wondered, "why did they name it that?" It's like hearing nicknames, you always wonder what the story is behind them. So in case anyone was wondering, I started calling my youngest child "little miss" because we live in the South. The nickname seemed appropriate for a blogger in Louisiana, so there you go. The actual URL that I wanted was "miles away from here", or something to that effect. I kept getting "miles not available please choose another," so I just went with that. www.milesnotavailable.blogspot.com

Of course, some are blatantly obvious...but for those of us who are wondering, what's your story?

  1. My kids call me Momma - not Mom, Mommy, mama, mother, Just Momma.. and I have 2....so - Mommaof2 was what I went with. When Big Guy was little,our neighbors at the time were from the south... and she called me Momma when talk to Big Guy about me... and it just stuck... he calls everyone older than him - Miss first name, or Mr First name... it's a little formal for Iowa - but I kinda like it.

  2. It is so funny you posted that. Everytime I go whippin' through the blogs I think that VERY thing. "Hmm, I wonder why they called it that?"

    Mine is named for the favorite way my two like to argue. "Mommy, he took my green crayon!" "Na Uh! Ya Huh!"

  3. i chose lifeisnuts because i had just gotten back from my final work trip... after traveling for three-straight months. i came home and the house was showing signs of neglect (as was my husband)... and we still had to take a friend of ours to Yellowstone National Park and I just couldn't catch up. plus, i wasn't feeling particularly creative when i set up the blog.

  4. My name is just me, because usually when I call someone I say it's just me... then the message. And my web address is bloggingatwork because that's what I do blog at work.

  6. I'm the manager because that's what I do ... not only at work, but at home. I manage.

    My name, LoriLoo310. Very obviously because that is my name, plus my nickname (everyone in the family calls me Loo, not Lori) and 3-10 is my bday.

    Neither creative or fun ... sooooo boring sometimes.

    Ha! My word verification is:

    Who is Hana, and why does she need to be fed?

  7. Overjoyedgirl comes from a song title by Jars of Clay. My Blog title "From The Outside of Everything to the Inside of You" stems from a song lyric by Counting Crows. My favorite band, and the line just seemed to fit for an online journal.

  9. The title of my blog is "On the Stage" because I love being on the stage performing and my address is theatretenor.blogspot because I love theatre and I'm a tenor because I love musicals the most.

  11. Kiki is my nickname. No one calls me by my real name, only when my mom got mad at me. Real exciting. My blogs name is because I love reality TV :) I also call my daughter Little Miss or missy and when I'm mad ma'am!

    Thank you for the nice comments you left on my blog.

  12. My blog title, Sermon on the Mount (of Laundry) is meant to describe my everyday life as a SAHM, while simultaneously referring to my Faith. Plus I kind of get this mental picture of this frazzled mom-bitching from the top of her pile of laundry, wich is kind of what my blog is all about.

  13. There are some odd blog names that are a mystery why they were chosen.

    Good blog BTW.

  14. Lady Luck~The name came because I wanted it to get attention. When I look at blogs, if the picture doesn't attract me, the blog title will.

    I love St. Patrick's Day, I love green, I love symbols of Luck-especially 4 leaf clovers.

  15. Thanks for your visit, after seeing my comment in Holli's Baby Faith blog. It's always fun to have new visitors :o)

    I started out as "Peace, Love and Sanity for All" - because that is what I really want. I get torn up when people, especially children, are hurt or have horrible lives.

    But I evolved into "Crazy Momma", because my kids call me Momma, and sometimes I think I may just go crazy. Sort of fit with the first name, because I am CRAZY and seeking PEACE, LOVE, and SANITY.

    Convoluted, no? Great question, though!

  16. Thanks for visiting me too! I'm BJ's Blunders and the name just came into my head. First and last initials of name to start with and then the blunders -many of those in life.

    What a great question!
