Today, I finally bought the domain name of my blog! Yay!!!
Thanks to a creative and productive brainstorming session with GL over dinner, I got the idea to combine my name with a meaningful word for my blog name! GL had initially suggested "maryvelous" - the combination of Mary and Marvelous... while I do agree that Mary is Marvelous ^_* that word combination sounded too much like a tongue twister...
So, after more brainstorming by myself, I came up with the idea of "Marylicious"!!! The combination of Mary and Delicious is just perfect for my blog, since I will be blogging mostly about food! Plus, "Marylicious" can be used as an adjective to describe my adventures while traveling!
While I was thrilled with my own creative genius, I knew I had to contain my excitement until I am the owner of the actual URL... So, I went to godaddy.com and started typing "marylicious" into its search engine... Imagine my happiness when the list came back and showed that "marylicious.me" was actually available!!!
Sure, I was a bit bummed to find out that "marylicious.com" had been snatched up already... but since I am writing a personal blog and not starting a business, the ".me" extension actually works much better! So, obviously I bought "marylicious.me" without hesitation! Woohoo!!!
I was so over the moon that I immediately announced the purchase to my siblings, and of course GL ^_^ Everyone was in agreement that "marylicious.me" was a genius idea! Although, Pharbs did indicate that using "marylicious" alone could lead readers to think that the site is an adult-material site... that's a valid concern... but I think the content would clear that up very quickly ^_*
So, now that I have a great name for my blog, I really need to get started with the actual blogging...
Let the Marylicious blogging adventure begin! Woohoo!!!
