Titles and taglines are the tiny labels that let our readers know what our blogs are all about. The more specific they are, the better.
My blog title is Scribbles@Arpita, and I love it, basically because it reminds of the random ideas I would scribble down as a child in my diaries and copies. I believe that habit has somewhat nourished the writer in me. Plus, the title got a bit of Twittery feel about it, too!
The tagline however was not something I was pleased about. Earlier it was:
Musings of an Aspiring Author
But it was too generic and I was tired of seeing the word ‘musing’ everywhere. So, I searched awhile for a quote (did I mention that I absolutely love quotes?) that might reflect the theme of my blog, and voila! I found it. Now, my tagline is this beautiful quote by Kelley Armstrong:
Storytelling is my passion, and it rises from a love of reading.
It’s totally in sync with my feelings. I love reading and writing and each exists because of the other.
