Today is the day!!!
If you remember, I announced this on my blog last week. I am hoping that's why you're back here - to play along with us. ;)
The idea of the link-up is that you write up a post telling us why you chose the name for your blog! I know that when I start following a blog, I always wonder how and why they chose their name. I'm curious like that. This is a perfect way to tell your readers the answer to that burning question!
So, get your posts ready and come back here to link up! Also, feel free to visit the other links and learn about the reasoning on their blog names too. :)
1. We’d like for you to put our button on your post for the link up.
2. Please follow your hosts. We won’t make it mandatory, but we appreciate the love!
3. If you tweet about your post, feel free to tag Stephanie, Amanda, or myself and use the hashtag #SayMyName
When I started blogging back in June 2010 (holy crap, it's been almost 3 years!) my blog was first called "A Day in the Life of Amber". It was all I could think of at the moment when I created the blog.
After a few months passed, I wasn't happy with the name anymore. I felt that it was too common and not personal enough. Sure, my name was included but it still didn't feel like a good fit for me and my blog.
I started brainstorming ideas. I wanted something classy, sophisticated, nothing too long, and something that still included my name.
I enjoy cooking and eating (duh, who doesn't?!) and I knew that I wanted to post some recipes every now and then on my blog too.
Then, Brunch with Amber came to me. I loved it! It fit so well. It's short and quick. Easy to remember. I had never seen another blog with a similar name, so I liked that too. I wanted my blog to stand out.
I immediately got a new design (as opposed to the background I found for free online) and changed my blog's name to go along with a new look.
I feel like it was then that I started to take blogging more seriously. I enjoyed it more, and wanted to really grow my blog into something bigger. Once I had the name that I loved and felt represented me best, I knew changing the name was the best thing I could do for my blog.
And so, that's how Brunch with Amber was born. :)
Now, tell us - how did YOU come up with YOUR blog name?? Link up your post telling us!
