Where did this hardly unique name of mine come from? You probably can guess it! I am kind of embarrassed about it now because I strive to be somewhat creative, but here’s the story.
Creating My First Blog
I have adored writing since I was younger. I decided to take my love of writing and create a blog a few years ago on WordPress. I wanted to share my experiences and hopefully help the world. It was a dream come true!
My first blog was on WordPress and then a few months ago I decided to expand and use Medium as well! I truly love being able to blog and having two amazing platforms that allow me to do so.
As with most new things, I tend to do a lot of research beforehand. I would research anything, and everything related to blogging so that I could gain as much knowledge and understanding as possible.
There was so much to do and to think of, it was a lot to take in, but very exciting nonetheless. The first step was coming up with a name!
Days Went By
I kept a notepad handy and wrote down any names that I could think of. I thought long and hard, I had a very long list of possible names.
I remember reading about a tip online to have a name that people could easily remember and one that is related to writing, for easy recognition and I took that a little too literally! I laugh at it now.
My first name starts with a “J.” I’ve been mistaken for a male more times than I can count, I think because people think of “Jay.” I am a female and although I currently write anonymously, I may change that in the future. We shall see!
I long to change my name into something more special and unique, but it has been with me for a while now and it doesn’t feel right to make that change. It would feel like I was starting over. I suppose I will have to learn to live with it and hopefully one day embrace the name. It’s not likely that I will embrace it, but I can try!
Share with Us!
I know some people use chosen words, pen names, and their actual names. How did you come up with your blogging name? I would love to hear your stories!

I like your blog name! It’s nice and short unlike ours that is way too long. Obviously, we didn’t put as much thought into having a long web address – but it’s too late to change it now.
