I read lots of mummy blogs during my pregnancy, and I decided that once Marianna was born I would set up my own. I'm too superstitious about counting my eggs before they hatch to have been able to blog during the pregnancy itself and, then, I had to wait until she was discharged from hospital at three weeks old for the same reason. Finally, I had my baby at home and I was ready to begin blogging with the name I had already decided on: Baby and Me.
Except I knew that would be a nightmare to get as a username, so I followed the advice my dad gave me many years ago, back when I was setting up my very first email address... I used the Welsh language version instead: Babi a Fi. I googled to check what came up and, aside from a couple of baby and toddler groups, I was in the clear.
|This old sketch helped me settle on the blog name.|
I do have wobbles about it, mainly because the lack of English in it is probably off-putting to people if they just see it in a list or something. But, overall, I'm really pleased with the name because it can cover all the weird and wonderful things I want to write about. It's a blog about our lives, and all the random interests which make them worth living. And it's definitely an improvement on some of my previous online monikers -
drygionus, ssquirrel, aeronwyn, mererid, plastigffantastig, starrrz...
