So, I'm doing this one in English. Why, you ask? Because I absolutely love the language, I find it easier to express myself, and I just realized that there might actually be English-speaking people reading my blog. Who knew, right?
Before creating this blog, I did som research (a very small amount if I'm to be honest) and read up on how important your blog-name was. It's meant to be your brand, the thing that represents who you are and what your blog is about. Which I noticed can be an incredibly hard thing to decide. But I still had some sense of direction, so I just went with that.
I knew that I wanted this blog to be a part of my continued evolution as a person, a place where I talk abut mundane things, as well as difficult questions, all things that I imagine a lot of people are thinking about.
But you also want your name to be aesthetic and appealing. So I tried to combine all those things into one, and that's how I came up with Kaleidoscope.
If you don't know what a Kaleidoscope it, it's a toy that you can look into, like a spy glass, and when you twist it, you can see the different coloured glass pieces inside shift and make different patterns. It's really quite beautiful, and they always gave me a sense of magic when I was a kid, and somehow that feeling stayed with me.
Did you know: The kaleidoscope was invented in 1816 på a physics professor named Sir David Brewster. (See? I even did some fact checking for you, how nice am I?)
So I thought, what better to represent the ever shifting nature of a human being, with all it's beauty and flaws, than a kaleidoscope?
Well, there are probably a lot of analogies to make, but this one suited me, and honestly, I also just really like the sound of it. And that's the most important thing really, you have to like the name you pick, because you're probably going to be using it for quite some time.
Now you have the story behind my blog-name! How did you come up with yours? Is there a story behind it or id it something you just like the sound of? I'd love to hear your stories if you want to share them with me!
