Today's Prompt: Tell us about your blog name. Where did it come from?
My blog name, the life in between, came to me when I was trying to escape my previous blog name, tawnimarie. I was blogging a lot more about Jesus than I was about myself, so I felt like having only my name in the title was just a little misleading. Also the tagline said something about fashion, and as much as I love fashion, I'm not a fashion blogger, so... definitely misleading.
I wanted the name of my blog to convey the content of my blog! I do post some personal content, and I write with a lot of voice, so I am definitely a part of my blog. The majority of my posts though are about my experiences and lessons from God, and about how Jesus and the Holy Spirit work in my daily life.
So after a minute or two, the name went from tawnimarie to God, Me, and the Life In Between. I felt like that was super straight forward, and that people would know exactly what to expect when they came here. And I hope that was/is true.
But wait! The story isn't over! The tricky thing was social media. Blessed social media.
What would my new handle be? GodMeandtheLifeInBetween? GodMe&theLifeInBtwn? Way too much.
Okay. GodMeandtheInBetween? No, what does that even mean?
Let's try this: TheLifeInBetween. Yes, there it is.
Wait, this: thelifeinbetween. Perfect. (I occasionally ignore capitalization rules for two reasons: laziness, and style. In this instance, obviously, I was going for style. Sorry if it bothers you. But not sorry enough to change it.)
So now the blag name stands as the life in between, and I really am happy with it. I'm afraid sometimes that new readers or people who stumble across my page without knowing anything about me will be a bit confused, so the new tag line says this, and this is, really, the heart of the matter:
COME HERE EXPECTING NOTHING BUT TRUTH. LEAVE HERE KNOWING YOU’RE NOT ALONE. A BLOG ABOUT GOD, ME, AND THE LIFE IN BETWEEN.
And there you have it! The story of the birth of my blog name.
CHIME IN! What do you think of my transition from tawnimarie to thelifeinbetween? Is your name a part of your blog title? What's the story of your blog name?
