Q & A: Behind the Name
Q: Where did you get the name Two Blue Pillars?
A: A long, long time ago, I promised that I’d share the meaning of Two Blue Pillars. I’m going to blame this one on pregnancy brain, since it seems like everything has been fluttering out lately 🙂 . When trying to find a new name for the blog (which used to be called Amanda’s Adventures, if you actually read it way back when), I wanted to find something that would be easily distinguishable in Google yet easy to spell and not too long. I tried a bunch of cliche ideas, and all of them had either already been taken or they had a ton of Google search results. So I began looking at objects around our living space, and several weird combinations later, I spotted the two blue pillars sitting on my end table. I googled the name, and guess what? There were no real results for “two blue pillars”. There was a blue candle results, and then spam. I knew that if nothing else, I at least had a unique name in case my blog would ever take off, and I would have a problem with legal issues like YHL did with their original name. Sorry that the story isn’t more interesting! But if you look in the header, you’ll see the two blue pillars up there. One of these days I’ll get a much better pic 🙂
