Its been close to a whole month since my last post, a whole month! I am really sorry about that. Journalism is not an easy course. With all the production projects I have had this whole semester it was a bit tricky for me to put up a post. It ain’t easy but I am LOVING every minute of production! I am back with a post all about my name title, “Blondie Bliss”
So anyway, I’ve had questions about how I came up with the name Blondie Bliss for my blog title. “What kind of name is Blondie Bliss”, or “Why don’t you just put your name and make it a brand rather than having a name you’ve pulled from a hat?” People have gone to the extent of asking me if I hate my name or whether I came up with it when I was bullied.
No, I don’t hate my name. I love it so much that sometimes I think if I’ll ever get married I might end up hyphenating the names. No! I didn’t come up with the name to make me feel safe because I was bullied. (I thank God I never experienced any bulling).
The name came up back in high school, in my last year if I can remember. Back in high school people used to call me a blonde because I would literally get jokes days later. I am not even kidding you. This one Sunday the pastor made a joke at the service and everyone around me spend close to 5 minutes laughing. “What’s so funny?” I was seated thinking to myself. Wednesday, I figured out the joke and started laughing in the middle of the class, all by myself like a crazy person and that’s where Blondie came from. My friends calling me a blonde was not in any way offensive.
Bliss means perfectly happy. Perfectly happy does not mean to be happy all the time. To me its finding some sort of happiness in whatever situation you find yourself in. That’s what I try to do. I’m a happy person, that’s what people tell me. All through out school my teachers and lectures (apparently they are different) would and still refer me as the girl who laughs in class or the happy girl. One teacher in high school said to me, “you are a blissful person, never loose that” and I try not to.
When I was thinking of starting my blog in 2015 the name Blondie Bliss just clicked in my head. The best part of it is that it describes who I am in just 2 words. Basically I am a happy person who does not get jokes as fast as every one else. Heck my humor is quite different from everyone else. But I LOVE it! and I would never have it any other way.
So for everyone who was wondering that’s how I came up with the name, hope that helps.
