A large proportion of the time I spend at my computer is spent on Blogger. I just love the amount of creative people who's musings and styles I can gaze at/read about everyday. Clicking through comments on favorite blogs, almost at random, has led me to find some fantastic blogs that I am glad to have found. I subscribe to far too many blogs, so many that it justifies the amount of time I spend on here otherwise I'd never catch up with them all! Still, there comes a point when I look down the list of blogs I subscribe to and can't remember who some of them are, which means its time for a tidy up.
One thing that got me thinking though, as I read down the list was how many different directions people have gone in with the names of their blogs. Names are so interesting - what a person chooses to call their blog tells so much! And there are so many pretty, interesting and lovely names people use. Which got me wondering what they were thinking - what was behind their choice? - I'd love to ask them.
Well...lead by example! My blog title is hardly groundbreaking, but this is how I got it anywayyy..
'This is my other face' is a quote from here, Cassie's therapy video diary from British drama Skins.
This is my face. And this is my other face.
I used to be toooootally obsessed with Skins, and more specifically the character of Cassie. (Used to be..ok fine still am gahh. Last week I bought all four series of skins on dvd. And I really want some over the knee socks and a silkslip now haha)
She was genuinely a bit odd, not just that faux-kooky-but-really-quite-normal kind.
I don't remember when I first saw this video but I know why - at the time (couple of years ago?) youtube video bloggers were bigger than they seem to be now, and I loved mememolly who did this version, which is cute.
So when I needed a name for a blog I was setting up I thought it would be a nice reference, but if nobody got it that would be ok too because they are sweet words in a sweet order, and that is enough.
So now you know! Ta-daa!
PLEASE! Do a post of your own, telling everybody how you chose the name for your blog! Tag other bloggers, get other people to do a post too! On some level it is probably just nosiness, but I reckon people have some genuinely interesting reasons.
Also, I hope the first week of 2011 has gone by without any hitches for you all. I am slightly sad because all my friends are slowly disappearing back off to uni, but I am happy because I went to the pantomime last night in Birmingham, and earlier this week I finished my first Diana roll! Good times.
