Last week, a radio presenter read one of my tweets out on air.
Don’t worry, the post isn’t about that: I’m not so bad that I think this is worth bragging about.
But as it was a tweet, he also read out my Twitter Username: @chicknamedherms
ChickNamedHermia was too long by ONE LETTER to use so I had to use the ‘Herms’ nickname a lot of you have given me.
When I heard him say it – actually heard it said out loud – I cringed.
I cringed at my own blog name.
I felt like one of those sad teenagers who try to reinvent themselves by choosing some strange name that they think will make them sound ‘original’.
Or those teenage Angst Girls who name themselves after goddesses because they think it’s deep.
I didn’t choose the blog name all those 2.5years ago so that people would call me Hermia.
That didn’t even occur to me at the time.
I know…how slow am I?
The name came from the lyrics of a song in the film Get Over It.
How could I resist?
It seemed like a good idea at the time: different, a little quirky and gave me some anonymity.
Now I feel less happy with it as a blog name.
So I’m asking you guys:
Should I change the name of the blog to something a little more adult, a little more creative?
To something that sums the blog up better?
And Happy St Patrick’s Day Eve.
