Naming a blog

Naming a blog is hard! All the good names are taken. You want it to be an interesting name, profound, be creative, and yet, have meaning. I read a lot of blogs, I read blogs on reading, sewing, cooking, knitting, gardening, fashion...just about everything. I didn't want my blog to be about one thing in particular, mainly because I couldn't live up to the pressure of having something worthy to say about just one of those things everyday. I read about a book a week, and usually about all I can say after I finish a book is "it was good" or "I liked it". I finish sewing something about once a month. I do cook everyday, but it's not always blog worthy. So, the way I see it is that if my blog covers all of my interests, I should have something to say on a regular basis.

So, I begin this blog with why I named it Sidewalk Shoes. First of all, it goes without saying that anything with shoes in it is good for me. But I tried to come up with something meaningful, my husband tried to come up with something meaningful, my cats were no help at all. So, I stood in front of my husband's vast album collection looking for something catchy. I really liked "The angels want to wear my red shoes", but that's kind of long. My husband pulled out "Sidewalk Shoes" by Ed Snodderly. Never heard of him. But I like shoes and like I said anything with shoes in it is good. So, there you have it, Sidewalk Shoes.

Well, you did it! You even imported the picture. It took me quite a while to figure out how to place pictures where I wanted them.

All the good names are not taken. You just found one. I have no idea what the album is like, but I can think of many directions you could go with "Sidewalk Shoes". It could be a travel log or go various other kid-oriented directions.

Sidewalk Shoes is a fantastic name! Wish I'd thought of it...

Hi Pam

Would you ask your husband if he'd like to sell his copy of Sidewalk Shoes? I played on it and don't have a copy!
