I called this blog “The Ramblings of Rachel” because that’s what I do. I ramble when I write and I ramble when I talk, and I love to suddenly switch topics, and occasionally my train of thought jumps the tracks. So it’s a perfect title for this blog.
In retrospect I realize that, while perfect, it’s not a very clever name. I actually realized this the first time I spun for Jen and there was a long list of participants (all of whom I am now hooked on which is no good, no good at all!) and most of them said things like Casey over at Half as Good as You (no matter the origin of that name I'm still a fan), and HeatherPride over at Riding the Short Bus . And there, on the list, sticking out like a sore thumb, was The Ramblings of Rachel. It just didn’t fit in. No "Rachel of A Cleverly Named Blog”. Apparently nobody uses their actual name in the title of their blog except for me. This was a bit of a wake up call.
So I’ve been thinking, what else could I have called it? And a list comes to mind…
The Adventures of Tweedle and Lillibit
Burning Up (and other things one does in Florida)
Tales of a WoW Widow
The Podcast Hunter
Creatures of Habit
An Eggless Life (it occurs to me that most of you aren’t going to get that one since I haven’t done any posts on this. That’s okay though, there are so many mysteries in life, what’s one more?)
Two Toddlers Each Day Keeps my Sanity at Bay
Death by Children's Television
and my favorite:
All pretty decent, all going unused. You can bet that if I ever start a blog in another life it's going to be wittily titled.
But in the meantime, I'll just keep on rambling.
