One of the most important things when starting a blog is choosing a name (…obviously). After all, the name will be the first thing people notice and read when they come to your blog, it’s like your blogging identity! Whenever I think or talk about a blogger, instead of using their real name, I normally use the name of their blog. Maybe this is only something I do, but whether it is or isn’t, the name of your blog is very important and should be special to you. Today, I’m going to share with you how I decided on Absolutely Olivia as my blog name, and the deeper meaning that it has slowly evolved into.
I knew I wanted my name in my blog title, so I started by trying out different word combinations with my name. They included Just Olivia, Only Olivia, and Olivia’s Style, but Absolutely Olivia just had that certain ring to it and was too perfect not to use! Initially, I chose my blog name off of what sounded best, but lately I’ve been thinking of the deeper meaning behind it.
Absolutely Olivia means that everything on my blog is absolutely and truly me.
Everything I post makes me happy and shows who I am and how I want you, my readers, to see me. The name of this blog reminds me to be genuine, honest, and not afraid to share silly things and sayings throughout my posts. Also, sometimes I’ll be hesitant to post something I’ve written (like Seeing Past Your Privilege) because it’s a something I’ve never done before or something I wouldn’t typically post on this blog. Yet, I’ll always put it up because even though the writing may not be fashion or lifestyle related, it still represents me in some way, and I think that you should see that.
I love being connected to the name of this blog, Absolutely Olivia. When people say it out loud, it makes me so happy! I know this was a short post, but it was something I wanted to explain. It always interests me how other people came up with their blog names and the special meanings behind them, so let me know in the comments your name story and feel free to leave any questions or blog post ideas you may have for me while you’re down there. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
