Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.
My blog has gone through several transformations (and will again in the future, I have no doubt). One thing that has changed a few times is its title. I don’t even remember all of the titles I’ve used but here is one header I still have in my files.
As you can read on my About page, I have always been compelled to record my life, so my blog has always been a journal. I started out wanting to record memories of parenting and homeschooling. As scrapbooking and photography became more regular parts of my daily life I wanted to reflect that in my blog title too. A few years ago I googled something like “photography quotes” and this one by Eudora Welty was one of the results.
“A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.”
It’s perfect for me, combining my passions for recording memories and photography. Whenever I write here (or in my personal journal, or take a picture) that’s a moment that won’t run away.
I think I’ve stuck with this title for longer than any previous one. But I’m not sure it’s suitable for a professional blog if I ever become a professional photographer. What do you think?
