What's in a name?

Andrea is...explanationing while killing bugs

The link for my blog is "ultraviolet lining". I wanted 'silver lining' but it, and any derivatives I could think of were taken already. UltraViolet was my internet nickname from back when I was in my teens...

Excuse me a minute, there is a spider creeping ever closer to me, so now he must die! Oh god, I just looked under my desk to find a forest of cobwebs. Yuck!

Where was I...I think UltraViolet was pre-my weather obsession, and primarily since I loved purple. I never knew how fitting it would be.

UltraViolet Designs is now the name behind the bags and other craft items I attempt to sell.

The blog title "UltraViolet Observations", is because I am a weather observer (observing all manner of things weather related, not just radiation!) and was sunburned at the time I needed a name!

On blogging...
I think my mum was very excited when she was informed that I was considering blogging, and I would just like to take this moment to apologise to the people in dorm 11 at the Kimberly Klub that night when my mother tried phoning and messaging me at 11.30.

Why is she so excited, do you ask? Well my mother (aka Sueblimely) is a superior blogger who blogs about...well, blogging. Strange as it sounds, she has a very popular blog, has won numerous awards and ranks among the top bloggers in Australia. Her blog is very technical and web-developy and unfortunately I can barely understand a word of it.

I would like to point out that I had a blog long before my mother discovered blogging, so I am not following in her footsteps! The blog is probably still out there in the wide world of net-land, but I cannot remember the name of it!

Thanks for the lovely comments. I too think it strange that I have a popular blog, who'd have thought it. You are right about our timings too. You were first with your blog - thanks for setting a good example to your mother :-)
