Book Blogger Hop (28)

Yes, that's right...time again for the Book Blogger Hop! This awesome meme is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books and this week's question is, "Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?"

Yeah, sometimes...but I've never really come up with another name that I thought would work better. Sometimes people forget there's an "A" and just call it "Tapestry of Words," and in alphabetical lists it can end up as "Tapestry of Words, A" which looks kind of odd. I also think that having your blogger name/alibi in the name of your blog helps people make the connection between you and your blog, so perhaps I should have had "Danya" in there somewhere!

There really isn't a story behind why I named it "A Tapestry of Words"...I was just thinking about how books are words woven together, and I also like creative writing so I thought it worked on a couple levels.

  5. I like your blog name! It sounds like a book blogs name, but isn't too obvious.

    Happy hop!


  6. I'm already a follower! Just hopping by!

    For me, I won’t change my blog name. For me, the blog name holds the identity of the blog and the blogger. I’ve been blogging for more than a year now. I’m used to it.

    Here’s my post: http://shusky20.blogspot.com/2011/02/book-blogger-hop-15.html

    I’d like to invite you over to my blog as I share the love with YA giveaways! They end on Feb. 28. I hope you drop by!
    Thank you and have a nice weekend!

  7. I think your blog name suits you. You like fantasy books and I associate tapestries with all of those pseudo-medieval worlds in those kinds of books. Or that could just be me and my convoluted word association :P

  8. Newest follower via the Friday blog hop. I am a new contemporary romance writer and a reader of almost anything! Hope you stop by and check out my blog.



I love comments, so post away!
