Summer Blog Challenge - Day 4 - Meaning?

Meaning behind your blog name.

This is an easy one...  Lets go back in time a little bit. I started blogging (privately) about 5 years ago. And just had it named "The Mommy Blog" and it was just a journal about my pregnancy and being a mommy. Then I was going to be a mommy for the second time and after having a difficult birth and a hard time financially I thought I would share my story and that's when I went public and created a "Live" blog. It was stilled called "The Mommy Blog" and I called it that because that's just what it was. A blog for myself and for other moms to read my stories. Of course with copyright and all that legal stuff I had to change it about a year ago because there was another big main stream blog that had the same name and that's when I changed it to "The Mami Blog."

The Mami Blog adds a bit more personality and story behind my blog. It actually means two different things....  "Me and My ideas" and it also bring my background into the name. I'm hispanic and the word Mommy is Spanish is Mami, which is actually pronounced the same way! Hubs always says that I have so many ideas that I just need to cut my list in like tiny little pieces and just do those instead of trying to do them all at the same time. So he says "You and you're ideas!" So those two "meanings" just blended together to create "The Mami Blog" and it didn't confuse my readers much and this is actually the first time I share BOTH meanings of the name behind my blog.

  1. I think this is really nice and self explanatory. I like how you kept a journal of your pregnancy and becoming a mom. I wish I had thought of that when I was having my first. What I did do was a collection of poems about things he did.
    Following you from the hop, I hope you can follow back.
