Day 2: Meaning behind your blog name
My blog is named: Hallee Bridgeman, Novelist…author of edgy Christian romances
This may seem like it will be a short post, because I’m Hallee Bridgeman and I’m a novelist. However, there’s actually a story.
I have a blog called Hallee the Homemaker. I actually just named that on the fly as a placeholder until I could come up with something more clever. But, everyone loved it and it stuck.
When I was setting up this blog, I contemplated using Hallee the Story Teller as the title of the blog – as a spinoff of Hallee the Homemaker. I talked it over with Gregg and we designed the site. But, when it came time to publish, the more I looked at the title, the more I didn’t like it.
My thought was, anyone who knew Hallee the Homemaker would think that was a very clever title. But someone just coming to Hallee Bridgeman’s blog who knew not of Hallee the Homemaker would wonder why such a title was being used. In a way, it felt very silly.
Consequently, the day before we published, I changed it to “Hallee Bridgeman, Novelist”.
My friend, Donna McDonald, is the one who came up with “author of edgy Christian romances.” We thought we coined the phrase, but come to find out, “edgy Christian” is actually a genre, and there are tons and tons of writers groups, forums, and blogs all falling under the heading of “edgy Christian.”
