I guess my sweet mother finds the name of my blog questionable. I actually had a hard time figuring out what to name my blog that wasn't a snooze-fest. To give you a sense of the nerdiness that is Addie, I will reveal to you that I actually Googled "naming a blog." It wasn't much help. I wanted something that gave a hint at my personality in a gently fiesty way. Here were some other names I considered:
Addie's Blog (or variations on this theme)
Wish You Were Here 2
Eat Sh!t & Die
So, the first one was a snoozer, the second two are unoriginal (visit my links to the right to see why), and I think the third gives off a much harsher sense than I'd like to convey. Plus, Blogspot probably wouldn't have allowed it. "the softer side of cynical" was a nice compromise, in my opinion.
