The next Blogging 101 assignment is to take control of your title and your tagline.
It always takes me ages to think of a blog title…mostly because I think my blog title should also be my blog address. I must admit that it can be a frustrating exercise because when you think of a title that is completely you and you find out that someone else has thought about it and the domain name is no longer available, it can be frustrating and very disappointing. I’ve always known that blog titles should be snappy, unique and memorable. I am thankful, however, that my father named me the way he did. My name makes for interesting blog title permutations! Toda rabah Abba! Oh and no, he didn’t name me Yelly or Welly! Ha!
A blog tagline is certainly as important as a snappy title. I’ve gone from not having a blog tagline to having an über long one, to have a sort of acceptable one, to the one I have now. I quite like the one I have now. It focuses on the things that I am enjoying at the moment – food and photography, hence “bites and snapshots”. My blog really is a place where I talk about the absolutely ordinary life that I lead and the things that make me smile (a great recipe, good food, a great read, a breathtaking photo – all of which don’t have to be mine!).
I’m happy that people are coming to visit the blog a wee bit more. I’d love to be able to chat to people on the comments section of the blog though. Please leave me a few words in the comments section! I’d love to hear from you!

I can soooo relate, sissy! My original blog site was soooo long and difficult to spell. I guess when it comes to naming your site, how you feel at the moment matters, too. I like yellywelly – it’s easy to remember and it is indeed you. 🙂
Awwww! Thanks sissy! It is important that my nearest and dearest approve! Haha 🙂 xx
