Explaining the name of my blog

Today I have the honour and pleasure of hosting the Thursday Writer's Post Blog Hop #4 and I'm also sharing this post for the letter E at ABC Wednesday.

Initially I thought I would ask you all to write your thoughts on love, but everywhere I turn and every prompt this week seems to be related to Love.

Instead I will ask you all to write about something you love ... your blog.

Share with us why and how you chose the name of your blog and what it means to you.

When I started blogging publicly in 2011, I found it really hard to choose a name for my blog. So many names bounced around in my head, Suzy's blog, Suzy's thoughts, Suzy's ramblings, Suzy's notes - most uncreative and very dull. But nothing really came to mind that resonated with me.

And the more I racked my brains to think of something, the more elusive and hard it got.

Whenever I blog, I listen to music as it always relaxes me and helps the thoughts form in my head and so as I listened, the song "Someday Somewhere" floated by.

Someday Somewhere
You said hello
And walked into my life

"That's it" was the thought that came into my head. And that's how I named my blog.

It's the perfect name as each one of you who drops by my blog says hello and walks into my life. Some for just that moment in time, some now and then and some for much longer with whom a lovely friendship starts to form.

This song also has a special place in my heart as it reminds me of a time long gone when love was young and sweet.

As always I am convinced the Universe sends the answers our way and for me more often than not it comes through a song.

So write your post, link up here with the linky below and share with us the beginnings of your blog. I look forward to reading your post.

And while you're writing and sharing, enjoy the song ... Someday Somewhere




Have a joyful and love filled day.

Drop by my facebook page Suzy's Ilation and if any of your posts needs some tlc, add it to the goodwill thread there and I'll drop by and give it some love.

Warm Regards

  6. Why am I not surprised that you chose a song title for your blog name! Strangely, although I've heard so many of Demis Roussos' songs, I've never heard this one, Suzy. Very appropriate, indeed and love the prompt! :)

    1. oh lol Corinne, you know me well. Glad you liked my post and the prompt. Demis Roussos sang some awesome songs. A lot of his songs trigger a memory or inspire a post - more on that someday!

  8. Naming the blog after the song you love , is a good idea. One has to choose the name carefully as it reflects the person behind the blog.

    1. So true Kalpana. The name of our blog does reflect our person. Perhaps that's why the Universe sent Someday Somewhere along for me as I'm such a dreamer!

  9. Good idea to name your blog after a song. I named mine because of my writer's cramps, lol ! I'll try to participate in the Thursday Writer's Post Blog, with another theme "Alphabet Thursday" which I do for years.

  10. This is a wonderful idea for a post. I have actually been thinking about writing an 'About' page for the blog, so maybe I will do that, as a part of this exercise! Great idea and I love the name of your blog. It has that sense of exploration , so nicely built in.

  15. I read few posts on the prompt given by u ! Really a lovely idea and feels good to come over here after a gap !
    hope u remember me ;)
    and ya some day some where is a unique name - really !

    As I am here just want to know rather than posting a new post on blog. I chose Pensive just becoz of harrypotter . Wanted to store all my thoughts in my pensive just like dumbledore does
    Pen-sieve (HP) and I just changed it to Pensive ( people spell it in both ways).
    I just kept a hyphen between Pen and sive recently. Not sure if it is too cool but I liekd it :)

  17. I'll also just say it here.The name of my writing blogs is Storypot. When I started the blog, I wanted to create a place where I could talk about the writing life, the writing process, things that inspire me to write, events in my life that influence what I write about. As the years have gone by, I have increasingly felt fortunate that I was able to choose this name, because I want my blog to be that warm kitchen where you can sit down, have a cup of coffee and chat while you cook. Only I'm cooking up the stories while my visitors keep me company and share with me about their lives.

    BTW, I came by way of Corrine from Everyday Gyaan.
