Day 1: Your blog’s name

I wanted to include as many stickers as possible; I don’t know why and I know it’s somewhat childish, but I dig it! πŸ™‚

Okay, so the name of my blog is La Petit Muse. I probably told the story behind the name a few times and this is going to be the last time that I tell it, so listen up real good.

I discovered WordPress at a time when I wanted to talk about football… wait, wrong story. Right. So, when I first signed up for this account, I wanted the word ‘muse’ in it (to reflect my writing) and I also wanted the name to sound somewhat Frenchy (to reflect my love of the French language). I came up with La Petite Muse because it’s proper French and it’s feminine, but nooooo, WordPress told me that it was already taken. I have no idea what or who La Petite Muse is for I’ve tried searching for it and nothing.Β

You lied to me, WordPress! How could you? I had toΒ butcherΒ the French language in order to come up with La Petit Muse. Now, here is where French comes in handy when talking about the blog title no matter how much I butchered the people’s language (as I do the English one at times all in the name of creativity). So, the word ‘petit’ can also mean simple, petty or insignificant where it concerns the law, so I like to translate my title as The Insignificant Muse or even The Petty Muse. 😜

French people will disagree…

…but what’s done is done. Sorry, Frenchies. 😒

I should check and see if La Petite Muse is available now, but I’m already accustomed to Petit. And that, ladies and gentlemen,Β isΒ how I got my blog name.Β

  1. Great story! It’s interesting because I have a similar story. I wanted my blog to be merely Madame Writer, but it was already taken so I had to go with Madame Writer Blog. And, like you, I have yet to find a blog on WordPress called Madame Writer. I think what happens is someone creates a blog and then deletes it, but WordPress still doesn’t allow for repeats. Just a thought…but it’s okay. About butchering French, I did too. I’m not married, and yet I chose Madame instead of Mademoiselle (mostly because it sounds more mature and because the latter is really hard to spell). So I totally relate to this post!

    1. I guess it worked out well for us in the end after all. I thought so too about repetitive blog names. I like Madame; it suits the name of your blog well. Mademoiselle is one of m favorite words. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

      1. Yes. Everything is great. Just swamped at the moment, so I’m getting behind on blog reading too. That’s just how it goes sometimes. Hopefully people will forgive me. πŸ˜‰

      2. Don’t fuss, Mandie, we all understand how it is. I’m happy to hear that everything is great, though. πŸ™‚
