The Story Behind the Name

The other day I was chatting with Bren and realized I didn't know what the BG in her BGgarden blog name stands for. We got to chatting about social media names and how it would be interesting to learn how everyone came up with their online identities.

Bren shares her story here. As for me, I came up with the name Garden Faerie in 2002 when I began gardening for clients. While they were busy at their job, I was busy in their garden taking care of things and making everything look nice, so when they came home it was like the Garden Faerie had been there! I picked that spelling of faerie because I've always liked how it looks. When I started blogging, it seemed the perfect name to use. I didn't realize until much later that the name might make people think I do fairy gardens or am petite, neither of which happen to be the case.

What about you? How did you pick your blog or social media name? Blog about your own Story Behind the Name and link to your post below! (If you've written about it already, just share the link!)
