A Little List Of The Little Things In Life – How I Found My Blog Name

The Little Things In Life –
Why I Chose My Blog Name 

Here is a post all about the little things in life!

I dont usually post today, and this topic is a little bit different, but I thought it may benefit some of you, and hopefully a lot of you can relate!

So it is about time I posted a quick one about my blog name. I love reading about the meaning behind other peoples blog names, and how they found it. Here is mine. Also containing a little nice list of the little things in life that I enjoy. (So when I finished this post, I realised the list is not very little…)

Figuring out and finding my blog name was probably the most stressful part to creating it! It took so long, to find a name that was so ridiculously simple.

Back Story On How I Found My Name, Why I Chose It;

Right, my first thought was to turn to the internet, I searched and searched for fancy words, pretty words, colours, name generators, I followed loads of different steps, spider diagrams, lists, creating my own word, using foreign words…
None of it helped at all. I was going round in circles and coming out with really crap names.

Finally I stopped searching the internet, and reading blogs on how to find a name, and I just began to think about what I like. I decided what I like the most, was the little things in life! I then came up with Charlotte’s things, Charlotte’s little things, and so on, and all of them sounded a little bit wrong…

So I went to bed, still thinking about it, and I thought about the name Lottie, which can be a nickname for someone called Charlotte, I then realised that Lottie sounds and looks a kind of like little, and I added them together! SIMPLE and extremely frustrating that I didn’t think of it in the first place…

And there was born ‘Lottie Things’ A simple personal and lifestyle blog, and I loved the sound of it. I then bought the domain immediately, and changed my social medias so they all matched, and that was it!

My TOP TIP for finding your blog name has to be –

Do not over think it, it will always be something super simple. Don’t waste time looking for words or help, you will find it yourself.
