The Story Behind the Name
I have linked up with Garden Faeries Musings where she wonders how different bloggers chose the name for their blog. There are quite a few weird and wonderful names for blogs out there and I have often pondered about their origins - Bumble Lush for one.
I have only been blogging since May of this year, and being a late-comer to this computer lark, had no idea that there was so much gardening going on in the blogosphere. I joined UK Veg Gardeners and found a site of like-minded people who just wanted to talk about veggie gardening, which was my greatest love. But it wasn't enough, I had got the bug and wanted more.
And so my blog was born, or should I say, sweated over. My technical computer knowledge was nil, it took me hours to set it up, with lots of swearing and frustration, it nearly didn't happen at all.
But what to call it. I hit on the 'Rosebank' part as that is the name of my house, the Ramblings came after trying all sorts of combinations Rantings, Ravings, Ruminating, Rural - anything beginning with the letter 'R'. And Ramblings from Rosebank it became.
My first post on Sunday, 15th May, 2011 was called Garden Allsorts I don't quite know why I called it that as I didn't actually say anything about gardening in the post at all - but I kinda wish I had actually called my blog by that name. And here we are, 186 posts later, still rambling on.
