Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop
You can participate here.


This week on the Book Blogger Hop, we are asked:
Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?

A: In May 2010 I knew I wanted to start writing outside of academia... but I wasn't sure exactly what, or where, to write. Fast forward to July 2010, and my good friend had convinced me to start up a blog. I needed a topic. I needed something I could write about with passion. And, then, I recalled my love for literature and coffee. Once I had logged onto blogspot.com and was asked for an URL and title for my blog, I knew right away that it would be Coffee Tale Reviews... almost.

I originally set out to create Coffee Tales. Blogspot wouldn't allow the url and title for one reason or another. I still love that name. Sometimes I daydream about changing my title.

Coffee Tale Reviews is a bit longer and it doesn't quite cover the full essence of my once strictly literature and recipe review blog... but I began with Coffee Tale Reviews, and I shall see it through to the end.

  4. I think it's a nice name. It bring up the image of someone reading and reviewing books while drinking a relaxed cup of coffee.

    Do you know there are a number of book bloggers that have "coffee" in their blog name? :-)

  8. What's in a name? Everything! A name is a label, a description and a promise. I'm very happy with mine - "Howard Sherman, Implementor" but it was quite a journey to get there.

    Hop on over to my blog and find out why - http://www.howardsherman.net

  10. It's so weird that blogger wouldn't let you use the name you wanted and that you had to resort to a slightly longer name but it still works!

  11. I have to agree. Coffee and literature go hand in hand with most writers I know, so your blog name is perfect!

    I hope you'll take a hop by mine. http://www.literary-magic.com
