(This post is dedicated to Britney Spears, who has chucked her hideous husband, the self-proclaimed superstar and idiotically monikered K-Fed. May his star wane, and yours shine on, girlfriend.)
… I posted. That’s three times in one day. You can just tell my husband’s away, can’t you? So’s the Pomo, he’s gone off to his cave to beat his nasty little head against a wall. And no, I haven’t been drinking, but I may, just may, be on a bit of a chocolate high.
I’m loving the NaBloPoMo Randomizer – every day it takes me to new blogs where I have a nose around, hang about a bit, comment, or enjoy and move on. It struck me how many different kinds of blogs there are – some are mommy blogs, others are hot mama blogs, others are litblogs, still others are diary blogs or photoblogs. When I started blogging a few centuries ago in February, I didn’t know what kind of blog I wanted, just that I wanted one. I knew I didn’t want a genre blog, because, while I am a mommyblogger and a litblogger, and sometimes even a bit of a hot mama blogger, I didn’t want want to be cast in one mould. I wanted to be free to write about whatever struck my fancy that day, to be a hodgepodge and a web.
So of all my NaBloPoMo Randomizing thus far, here is my favourite find: Belgian Waffle. She is Irish, funny and living in Belgium with her husband and three small children. She has a great line in dialogue, as well as a brilliant blog name. Treat yourselves and have a read. Anyway, through Ms Waffle, I came across Don’t Mention the Skiing, a hilarious blog about learning to live in Switzerland. It’s subtitled “Heidi Would Have Been Proud of You”, and has recently won a Swiss Blogging Award. The great news is that Ms Heidi is shortly moving to Germany and has given her new blog the superlative name of Gin and Teutonic. I mean, how clever is that?
This got me thinking, if I had decided to give my “living in Germany” theme a stronger slant in my blog, what kind of Germanic name might I have chosen? Here are some possibilities:
- It’s All Sausage to Me
- Small Beer
- I Only Speak Station
- Ich Bin Ein Bloginer
- Shoes Off Please
- Anyone Feel the Draught?
- Ein Blog Bitte
Please feel free to make suggestions … and nominate your favourite. I’m tending towards “Ich Bin Ein Bloginer”, though “It’s All Sausage to Me” has a certain ring to it.
