Story Behind My Blog Name



Thinking about how I got my blog name during my first time involving with Blogger make me feel want to laugh out loud. I still remember the moment when I decided to make a blog for myself. It was so funny, okay! If I can turn back the time, I would never pick Apple Mints as my blog name but use my name instead. And now, it's 2016. What can I do with that? Just let it be. It's already happened anyway. Right?

So, back to May 2011.

I literally did searching the proper and great name for my blog for few days or maybe months before I officially created my blog. Regarding the blog name, I also did open some newspapers, magazines, and google-ing the 'perfect name' for my blog. And when I opened SOGO catalogue, there was Applemints's apparel on some page of that catalogue and on that time I said to myself that Apple Mints could be great to use as my blog name and I did it.

Yes, I did it.

For ones who already follow my blog during the time I used Apple Mints, they might be noticed this changes. That's the reason why you can see syaza-applemints.blogspot.com on my link blog until now. But, after few years using Apple Mints as my blog name, I decided to change it to my name which is Syaza Raihanah until now. I also want to change my blog link too. Unfortunately, I cannot change my blog link. Sad. After asking a few bloggers about changing my link blog, I'm not going to change because there might be some error or problems after changing that. Since I don't want to take any risk, I just let it stay like that. Hmm. I have thinking to have a domain for my blog too, but not for now. Might be in the future. Wait for it, okay?


That's all my un-interesting story behind my blog name. Do you have any experiences about this? Share with me in the comment box below. Would love to hear that!


This coming 26th May, my blog gonna be 5 years old. Yay! I'm so happy and glad that I still here, as a Blogger.

  5. hmm.. before ni my blog was call duckandrun. as in DUCK and RUN. tunduk dan lari. hahah tapi dah lama2. tukar ler ke Ztie Shr. Nak pakai nama penuh sendiri macam nama tipikal sgt. hence the ztie and shr is my father's initial name. mmg macam tu lah kanbila dah meningkat dewasa ni. Dulu pernah terfikir nak tutup blog atas alasan tertentu. Im glad I didnt last time. semua tu memori kan. im proud to be a blogger since 2009. walau pernah hilang utk beberapa tahun

    1. Waktu buat link tu tak fikir panjang sangat. Asalkan nama sedap dan rare terus buat link. Bila dah lama baru rasa menyesal. Tapi takpelah, benda dah lepas kan? Hehe

  7. hahaa.. sama la dengan saya dulu.. start blog akhir tahun 2011 masa tu form 5.. tapi sebelum guna blogspot ada je guna platform2 lain bnyk tp mcm tiada dah semua tu..

    Nama saya pilih dan masih kekal TheNewMinded.. cuma logo je sudah tukar.. Bila fikirkan balik mmg kelakar juga la masa tu pilih TheNewMinded ni.. haha.. Sampai ada satu tahap tu apa yang thenewminded nye pasal blog ni..

    Tapi dgn pilihan nama blog yang betul ia dapat motivate saya dalam membantu & mencari dalam aspek SEO semua tu yg kini dpt bantu blogger2 lain..alhamdulillah..
