Well, this is my first non-tag post of June! And I decided to share my story of my blog name. My overly long, wordy, and convoluted blog name. The story of how I got into blogging is another post, likely for my one year blogging anniversary in two months. Anyway, here’s my story:
As many of you know, I self published a book called The Melting Pot back in November. While it certainly isn’t my best work as of late, I don’t regret naming my blog after it.
You can find my book here! While it isn’t the best, I do think you can download it for free.
Anyway, I was thinking, as I created my blog name…I don’t want to just blog about The Melting Pot. I want to blog about other things too! Books, Webtoons, TV, anime, movies…I want to blog about all the things I like! And so I decided against just calling my blog something like, The Melting Pot Book. Boring! But I thought, Melting Pots and Other Stuff, or Melting Pots and a Variety of Things didn’t sound good. But then it hit me. The word, “calamities”. Now that was a fun word.
(Maybe not if you’re a Noragami fan, but hey, I hadn’t even heard of that back then. Sorry, Yato). Anyway, I put it all together in one sentence: Melting Pots and Other Calamities. Now that sounded cool, I thought. Definitely something you didn’t hear everyday. Kinda weird, kinda funny, but an inside joke just for me.
On another note, I’m thinking of changing my USER NAME to something like KDreader02. It’s easier to type out than meltingpotsandothercalamities. But, maybe not. I don’t know if I like that idea. Here’s some advice to make it easier: my name is Kate. If you want to tag me or mention me, just say Kate! It’s way easier to spell than…well…my blogger name.
And that’s how I got my blogger name! Maybe it’s not as interesting as you hoped, but hey, I still get questions to this day about it. I hope this was equally informative and fun for you guys to read. 😊 Do you have an interesting story behind your blogger name? I’d love to hear it!
