melaniexeinalem blooms

I have wanted to start a blog for years (yes, YEARS), but I was perpetually stuck on a name. I thought that the title of my blog was the most important part. The one time I thought I had come up with the perfect name, when I went to register it, someone had already claimed it. I was devastated and once again put off my little dream of starting a blog.

Recently, while looking through my photo stream on Instagram, I realised that all I really wanted from my blog was a place to share my day to day life and things I love. I didn’t want to wait any longer to start working on something I had wanted for much too long. I finally decided to use the username melaniexeinalem that I use on most of my social network accounts. I don’t know why I didn’t just do that sooner!

The lesson is, don’t put off your dream until the conditions are perfect – you have to start somewhere, and {today} is as great a day as any to start.

Some people have asked me if Einalem was my last name. In case you didn’t realise it before:

melaniexeinalem is my name, { Melanie }  the letter { X } and then ‘Melanie’ spelled backwards { einaleM }  (pronounced i-Na-Lem )

I hope you enjoy what you read and see here. Please feel free to comment and let me know where you are reading from. Wherever you are in the world, I would love to hear from you.
