Day 1 – I’m tempted to include this on the title. But, I decided not to. Why? I just don’t want to include the day number on the title. Period. 🙂
Anyway, I thought of several blog names before I finally decided to choose Kwento Ni Mumay. Some I cannot remember anymore. Here are some of the choices I can still remember:
Lakwatserang Kusinera – because I love to travel (if my schedule and finances will allow) and I looooooooove cooking with the inner depths of my soul; Kidding aside, I see cooking as a good form of therapy. It relieves you from stress, it uses all your senses thus keeping you too busy to focus on petty issues, and the appreciation of the food you cook is soothing. However, I’m neither just a traveler nor a frustrated chef. I’m also a mom, a wife, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a dreamer… If I will be using that blog name, my topics might be limited only on travel and cooking, which I do not like. So I had to scratch that
Lakwatserang Kusinera off my list.
Different header studies for my blog in the past #remisniscing
Happy Mumay – let’s face it, no matter how I wish and try to be happy always…. it’s just NOT possible! Plus, I thought that at one point, I will need to rant (indirectly with sarcasm) on some of my posts so I had to say goodbye to that
Happy Mumay blog name.
Toot-a-doo – way back in college, I attended a writing workshop where we one of the speakers is a creative writer. I remember him talking about this word – “Toot-a-doo” which (according to him) means focus. To this date, I have tried searching the term in google but it never generated a definition or an association to the word focus. I would love to have that as a blog name, yet I too, am confused where such term originated. So, I bid that
Toot-a-doo blog name goodbye.
Finally, I thought of the blog name – Kwento Ni Mumay for the following reasons:
- I loooooove to talk as much as I love cooking. Most people thought I’m introvert. Probably, they’re just confused with me not-wanting-to-talk-with-them silence vs. me being an introvert. Anyway, I feel that I have a lot of stories to tell that some of my friends and most of the people I know are not interested to listen to. Thus, I say hello to Kwento Ni Mumay blog name.
- The world is limitless. I don’t want to limiting my topics based on the blog name that I will use. Same reason why I didn’t push through with the Lakwatserang Kusinera blog name. Thus, I say hello to Kwento Ni Mumay blog.
- Mumay is my warm and friendly name. Mumay is different from the silent Kristene and serious
hardworking KM. So, when I speak or write as Mumay, I can assure you that I tell you unedited stories about myself and what concerns me. Thus, I say hello to Kwento Ni Mumay blog.
How about you? What is the story behind your blog?
I’m so back,
