Name That Blog
I am intriqued by the name of many blogs that I see. How did the writer come up with that name? What does it mean? Why didn't I think of that? Some, of course, are fairly straight forward like, The (insert name) Family News or Life With The (insert name) Family. Some are descriptive of the writer's place in life or their career or a hobby that the writer loves. Some are fun or funny and others give a sense of artiness or angst. Sometimes the name of the blog and the content of the blog are cohesive and sometimes not. In the long run it is the content of a blog that keeps us going back, but I'm still curious about how some of the names came about.
In my first post I explained the name of my blog this way: At 61 years old I often think back and wish I could remember more about myself or my children or some event or activity....all those years and all those things that brought me to today. .....Why "Living Consciously"? I am, like everyone, getting older and I hope, like everyone, that continues for a long time, so I want to do it the best I can. I feel like one of the keys to that is to live consciously..... Maybe blogging will help me along that path.
I think blogging has made me pay more attention and be more conscious of things going on in my life. It has also joyfully opened up a whole world of what others are paying attention to. It is often those things that others are paying attention to that has helped me to live more consciously.
