I’ve gotten the question, What’s fairlyliterary mean? or Why are you fairly literary? quite often. In the past I’ve covered what it means and how I came up with the name. To simplify the story I’d just chalk it up to the deliriously yet imaginative mind I had (still have just less delicious of course) circa 2011.
As some of you may know, I’m a big fan of onomastics -the study of the origin, form, meaning, and use of names- which stems from my love of etymology– the source of a word or the study of the source of specific words.
Prior to starting this blog I had countless others. I wasn’t really serious about blogging or connecting with other bloggers until 2012. I’ll just say 2011 was a wake up call for sure. The first blog I ever started was on a now defunct site called Xanga. I’m so glad I printed out all of my posts prior to the shutdown. Thanks to that, I get to look back on what kind of a writer I was, what kind of things I was into, etc.
I wanted to start a blog, something fresh, something blank that I can draw all over with my thoughts and ideas. That freshness reminds me of Mondays. How fitting this post is up on a Monday.
I recently created a naming blog called How We Came Up With Who. In starting it I realized that I could’ve just kept this blog and added names to it but I think I wanted a change.
Shameless plug aside, I started this blog to express my other interests which include reading. Also, I plan on covering my affair with reading next. That may or may happen let’s see where my ADHD mind takes me 🙂
Oh the point of this post was to explain the meaning behind fairlyliterary.
- Literary- pertaining to literature
So I keep the blog posts varied so sometimes you may see literary posts and others you may see a gallery of pictures.
As always, thanks for stopping by. It was wonderful to have you.
