From people’s faces, I can always tell they are having internal debates on whether or not to ask me why I named my blog FODREAMY.
If I am being honest I am glad that no one has been upfront with the question because there’s really no fancy story to tell.
Yesterday as I was scrolling through twitter, I stumbled across a tweet by a blogger trying to get advice from her followers on whether she should change her blog name cause she feels the one she’s currently using is too “plain”.
I began reflecting on the name of my blog and questioning whether I would ever change it to something else and how I came up with FODREAMY. Just to clear things up, FODREAMY is not a real word! What I mean is you will never find it in a dictionary, Bible or any reference material. Its more of an acronym that I got from a mantra I frequently use “Forever A Dreamer”
In 2015, I made a decision to start my blog (which was also among my big dreams) but I wasn’t sure what to name it. I didn’t really want to use my name and I felt forever a dreamer was way too long.
I felt stuck. I really wanted the name of my blog and the message of my blog to represent who I am as a person. I spent most of the day figuring out what content I strive to put for my readers and it all came down to anything fun, positive, inspiring as long as my true to myself is kept intact. That’s when FODREAMER came to mind ( It took a lot of scribbling while in the toilet lol) but I wasn’t feeling FODREAMER at all so I decided to sleep on it.
The next morning, I was having breakfast then I thought why not remove the “EA” in Fodreamer and replace it with “Y”? I wrote it down and said it out loud and I liked the sound of it.
I had to check if it was available for usage first but that’s pretty much how FODREAMY came to life. And to answer my own question, NO! I don’t think I will ever change my blog name to anything else.
What’s the story behind the name of your blog? Would you ever change the name of your blog?
