Todays Blogtober is all about my blog name and the meaning behind it. Well, you can read a bit about my blog name here if you like. In short, my blog name doesn’t actually mean anything. When I started blogging it was Adam that came up with the original name. When I bought my domain I only wanted a short URL so I took candyflossdreams – I then found out that was another, pretty unused blog to be honest, so I changed the name of the blog to Candyfloss & Dreams after speaking with another blogging friend.
It doesn’t mean anything and it doesn’t make any sense but I absolutely love my blog name. I love that the name is pretty niche free so it means I’m free to talk about whatever subject I like. I think, for me, it’s important to have that kind of creative freedom. Because of the name I describe myself as a lifestyle blogger because I talk and blog about so many different things. Whilst I do blog about parenting and being a mum my daughter now has her own Review corner which is a regular weekly feature. This is where the more child friendly stuff is going to come from to be honest, because it’s something we can work on together but show her love for things and her life rather than me writing about what it’s like to be the parent of a six year old. I’m sure if I had more children then my pregnancy would come into it but this is never going to be a parenting blog.
For me, Candyfloss & Dreams means a place where I can put all my thoughts and lovely things, life experiences and things I want for the future. I can share our top tips, reviews and holidays and have a place that I’ve created to look back on over the years. I don’t know what the future holds but I know that right now Candyfloss & Dreams is a huge part of my life and I can’t wait to see how it will develop.
