The truth behind the name...

In case you haven't ever done it, the absolute hardest part of starting a blog {for ME, anyway}, is choosing a name for it.  I didn't feel comfortable with using "mom" or "mommy" in the blog name - and most of my first ideas were incredibly sappy or cheesy.

I surfed and searched to the ends of the earth interwebs for inspiration.  

Once again, my dear friend, One Rad Mother, provided the answer:

I know I like to read other people's blogs because it makes me feel as if I have snatched their diary from under their mattress.

I read blogs for the same reason.  I like to have a peek into someone else's life.  So there you have it.  It's not creepy.  It's not dirty.  It's just your opportunity to peek under my mattress and make off with my diary.

You know you want to...  we're all nosy.


  1. So true! Well said, One Rad Mother, well said! And for the record, that is exactly what your blog title made me think of when I first saw it! And I have discovered that naming anything is incredibly powerful, and incredibly difficult. Whether it is a blog, a bakery, or a child - the name is something that people know about you before they know anything else. What a great opportunity, to be able to name a child.

  2. You were my namer - so I guess it's only fair that I'm yours!! :)
