How I Named My Blog Day....

Another post without art! Pretty darn boring, huh! So today I'll tell you a little story. Jeanie wrote a post about how she named her blog. She is participating in How I Named My Blog Day, started by Ruth. After reading her story I decided to play along.

If you've been a long-time reader of my blog you know it has had more than one name. When I first began blogging it was named "Just Bee-cause" I chose that name because my little blog was created mostly so I could go around and comment on other blogs I liked. Since my initials are JKB I decided to use Bee-cause as the spelling. I never dreamed that I would actually get readers! It remained "Just Bee-cause" for almost two years.

Then I decided that it didn't say anything about me so I tried to think of another name. I ended up using "The Lavender Loft" but I was never happy with that one. I used Lavender because you all know my love of anything purple. Then I tried to think of something "artsy" to go with that and Loft was the only thing I could come up with....like an artist's loft. That name hung around for almost another year.

Then I finally came to the conclusion that since "The Lavender Loft" really didn't fit either I would name it again! This time I simply called it "Just Me and My Art" which is what my blog is all about....well, most of the time. It's plain and simple like me; straight and to the point which is how I like things; and it's easy to remember. I'm probably going to stick with this name....at least for now!

Names are interesting in all forms. I've written about my name here and then again here. I've often tried to come up with another name for myself but nothing seems to fit....not even Janet! I don't have much in common with this Janet....



Or with this one....

If you could change your name, would you? And if so, what would it be?
