Picking a name for this blog was tough. There were so many choices and so little inspiration.
My first, and final idea was Das Bloggen.
I first thought up the Das part. It’s German. Germany is cool, right? I thought that just by having a German title my blog would automatically become more cool. People would arrive on my site and go, “Woah, this English blog has a German title? This dude must be really cultured! I bet he speaks German and wanders around Europe having loads of crazy adventures.” Those people would be wrong. I can’t speak German and the closest I’ve been to Germany is eating a Frankfurter.
But still, the German angle worked, so I stuck with it, trying to think up a second word. Something equally German sounding, and appropriate. But I was bored, and lazy. So I just thought “well, this is a blog…”bloggen’ sounds German…I’ll just use that!”
Thus Das Bloggen was born.
Months later I stopped being bored, and lazy. I checked online to see if the term “das bloggen” had any meaning. It does. It means “the blogging” which may or may not make sense. I’ve no doubt German people come to my site, laugh at the terrible German title, then leave saying “he can’t speak German, he’s so uncool!” They’re totally right.
My name is Dan. I enjoy writing from time to time, and sometimes that writing ends up on this blog. Now and again others contribute.
