WHAT'S IN A NAME?



As Sweet as Cinnamon has been wondering about how our blogs got their names.

Mine is pretty simple.  I like alliteration, where successive words start with the same letter (like Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers).  My name is Pat, so Pat's what?  Patter means chatter.  My blog is where I chatter about my quilting and occasionally other things pop in too.  So the name of my blog is Pat's Patter.

But the link is PatsPattering.blogspot.  Why?  PatsPatter was already taken and pattering is just another form of the same word.

If you'd like to join in this fun, post about your blog's name, and link it with Dawn at As Sweet as Cinnamon for a chance to win a drawing.

I like your blog and its name.
Very nice!

I saw that on Dawn's blog. I too like alliteration, thus Marilyn's Maze, much like my random thoughts. ;-)

Hi Pat. I am making my way through the list and I am having so much fun. I love the spool flowers in your header as well as the name of your blog.
