Friends and family have asked what The Talk With Moi means and how I came up with it. The Talk With Moi literally translates to “The talk with me” which at that time was the feel I was going for for my blog. I started “blogging” in 2012 with a Social Studies assignment. I talk a lot more about my blogging journey in the Meet the author page. Basically from 2012-2015 I blogged a couple of times.
I don’t even remember what my domain name was, but the main reason I created the blog was for people to come and talk about their life without feeling like they were being judged. Most of my blogs back then were basically a summary of my day. In November 28, 2015 I decided to take on blogging as more of a serious hobby. I decided to blog more often and add a variety of blog posts. Before I could publish my blog, I needed to give a name. That was when The Talk With Moi came into my mind.
I had taken French for 3 years and loved the language, so that’s where the “Moi” part comes. “The Talk” part comes from my old blog format which as I discussed earlier had a comment section where people can be anonymous and post about their day. I really liked this feature at that time, because I was going through some hard stuff and I knew a lot of teens battled with depression, so I wanted to create a place where people can vent without having reveal themselves. I knew it was really hard for me at the time to talk to people I knew. The main reason being I didn’t want to be judged. My co-authors and I tried to incorporate this onto the new blog.
Most people really do think I have a special meaning behind my blog, but it’s not true. It was a name I came up with in 5 minutes, so I can post the blog. I had every intention of changing it later on, but it grew on me. Do I regret making a snappy decision when it came to my domain and blog name? Nope! Because I know if I really thought about it, I would drive myself crazy.
I know you were probably expecting an epic story on how I had a dream about my blog etc. etc. but yeah not everything can be so action packed. Let me know in the comments below how you came up with your blog name? If you don’t have a blog, you can just tell me how you came up with one of your usernames?
