Well hello there lovely people! I hope you are enjoying my brand new blog! I think I spent too much time perfecting the layout, but I am extremely happy with the finished product. I am especially happy with the name of the blog, "Another Little Birdie."
In the initial stages of building this website, I didn't have a specific name in mind, mostly because I didn't have a specific topic for the blog to be about. I wanted the blog to be very free so that I could talk about anything that I felt passionate about at the time. So, while scouting for name ideas and inspiration on the internet, blog title options flowed through my head like an open tap. They ideas I came up with were, however, unrelated to how I wanted my blog to be styled. One thought I had was "Butter Me Up" for a kitchen blog. If I knew anything about making a good meal, I would've used that one. But with my minimal cooking knowledge, I just let that be a future blog name for an imaginary foodie website.
Anyway, I was looking for a pun or idiom type of blog name, and somewhere along the way I came across the phrase "A little birdie." This, of course, refers to the common English expression "A little birdie told me...." where the little birdie is an anonymous person giving out information. I thought that this was the ideal name for my blog. I wanted to be unidentified, and I wanted to spit out random thoughts and opinions I may have for other people to hear. I would be the most perfect "little birdie" one could ask for. This would be just right for the blog.
Apparently, many other people in the world had the same idea, because I looked it up and there were quite a few "A Little Birdie" websites plus the name was taken when I tried to use it. So, I settled for "Another Little Birdie" which was just as good because it implies that I am just one perspective of many and you can choose to listen to my thoughts or not. Whatever you want!
And that, in essence, is what I want this blog to be. I want to rattle off about experiences and new things that I learn. If you like it, you can read it, but otherwise, this is just a fun hobby for me. I hope I can share my passion for writing with you because I really want to get better at this in a fun way!
Thanks for reading!
