Rustled Pages ~ An Explanation Of the New Name

I've always been one of those people who's fond of a really good name. Maybe good name is not quite what I mean – rather, the right name. Whenever I'm writing, I'll spend hours researching etymology in order to find my characters the perfect name – and, even then, I'm prone to changing their name several times afterwards. Essentially: I like a name that just clicks.

I guess this is why I've changed this blog's name. I came up with the previous name when I was 13 years old, back when the tone and content of this blog were considerably different. And so I've decided to rename this corner of the internet Rustled Pages – and, at this moment, this seems entirely the right name. I can't quite explain why I love this new name, but I'll endeavour to do so. I guess, in all simplicity, this is a blog written purely because of a reader's love for books. And, for me, the rustling of a book's pages is a sound intrinsically associated with all the years I've spent devoted to reading.

Apologies for the brevity of this post, I have a handful of (thankfully more interesting) posts coming across the next few weeks!

  1. Heeeey I really like your new blog name. It expresses what is to be expected in the content of the blog, it's simple, that's all you need. Plus if it feels right for you that's probably the best course to take. Personally, I would never change my blog name even though it's kind of boring, unoriginal and generally not creative. It mostly has to do with laziness and a little bit with attachment. Looking forward to your next posts ;)

  2. Yay I'm so glad you found a site name that instantly clicked with you and your blog! Although I also love the sound of Feed Me Books Now (b/c who doesn't want BOOKS!) I also like the sound of Rustled Pages :D

  4. Oh goodness, I absolutely adore the new name - as much as I loved "Feed Me Books Now" (because real talk here, who doesn't love eating books? ;)), this seems more... fitting, I suppose, to the content of your blog today. And that is always the most important thing. xx
