Hi all, though I am quite attached to my name and think it has a nice ring to it (I know, I’m totally biased), I decided it was about time to give my blog a name of its own.
“Why?”, I hear you ask. Well, I don’t think it’s very self-explanatory what the blog is about, nor do I think it reveals much about me – and, to be frank, I hadn’t realised just how easy it was to register a domain. So, after doing much research and checking to see what names have been taken (it’s a lot!), I came up with a short list of three:
1. The Gin and Tonic Diaries
2. Dreaming of Tea
3. Thyme for Tea (love a good play on words!)
So how did I come up with these names? Well, if it helps put it into context, my favourite things in life are: a good cup of tea; a crisp G&T (thanks to my Granny for this one); chocolate; vintage and antiques (I have a minor addiction to charity shops too); cats; baking and a good book.
Having discussed the shortlist with one of my best friends we decided the tea ones were not only more apt and also had a nice ring. The G&T one could suggest a predominate alcohol theme to the blog which is definitely not my intention.
Out of these three, the only domain that wasn’t taken was *drumroll*: ‘Dreaming of Tea’.
My plan is to upgrade the look and feel, and introduce more posts on my other interests i.e. vintage shopping. I will still be chronicling my food and drink endeavours.
I hope you all like the name. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
