I didn’t spend a lot of time picking the name of my blog. My original idea was Go Big or Go Home which sums me up perfectly. Unfortunately, that was already taken like most of the good ones are! The only criteria I had for a blog name was it to be a Dot Com and not a .net or any other internet address except one ending in .com. I also didn’t want it to be too long or something hard to remember. The next idea that came was a suggestion by my husband for this one. I liked it immediately due to what it stands for (which I’ll explain in minute). I was too naive to bother to see if anyone had anything similar. I just put it into Go Daddy and saw it was available so jumped on it. It took me 9 months after acquiring the domain name (an entire pregnancy) to get up the nerve to write my first blog post.
I have since learned that Almost A Kiss is a song from New Moon–one of the Twilight movies. That is what comes up for several dozen pages of a google search. Almost Kiss is a Kiss Tribute band. I knew none of these things when I chose my website name. Ignorance is bliss or I’m sure I would’ve picked something else.
My husband and I are as busy as anyone else out there but we always make time for each other. In the mornings, he is busy getting ready to leave for work and I’m tending to the dogs and eating breakfast, etc. We always kiss hello and goodbye when one of us leaves. I don’t know how we got in the habit but it has stuck. Sometimes we’re in such a hurry we both move towards one another and our lips get about 1/4 of an inch away and we almost kiss. We usually say, “That was ALMOST a kiss!” Sometimes we try again with more success and other times we’re in too big of a rush to make our lips actually meet. No matter what we have on our schedule for the day, we should always try to take time to give love to those who are important to us!
I should’ve called this Almost A Blog (alas, it’s taken! I just checked) because with how infrequently I write, it hardly qualifies as a real blog. I’d like to hear how everyone else chose the name for their blogs. 😉
