A weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books.
This week's topic is from Jen B. @ I Read Banned Books:
Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?
In short, not really. I wonder sometimes if my frilly blog template is mismatched with my funny title, but I don't know what else I would call it without losing that unique quality it has (if I do say so myself!)...and I like purple :) Here's how my nickname & the blog's name came to be...
When I first started the blog, like I'm sure many of you did, I wasn't sure what to name it. I just wanted something different besides the typical titles--possibly a one-and-only title that no one else had claimed (good luck with that thinking!). I was reading lots of material about current pedagogical philosophies in which teachers are no longer Aristotelian lecturers but are learning at the same time from their students as they teach. I sure am! Hence the nickname "Teacher/Learner."
As for "Whatcha Readin', Books?," I remembered when I was on a prep period, and a student came back to class. He/she (can't remember which) saw me reading, and, with a hilarious laidback tone, asked "Whatcha readin', books?" Well, I certainly wasn't reading the encyclopedia :D
What about your blogs? How did your blog name and/or nickname come to be?
Have a terrific weekend :)
