What's in a name?

I've thought long and hard about the decision to begin writing a blog. I've had several (at least 2) in the past and all (both) fell totally flat. I think the failure was in large part due to my own lack of focus and questioning what to share. In this day and age, anonymity, especially for children, is a pretty big deal so I don't want to infringe on their rights or lives. In addition, I wonder whether I have anything to say that hasn't already been said, anything to share that hasn't been shared.

I think I do.

I have things to say, things to share, that might not have been said or at the very least someone out there needs to hear. So I delve, yet again, into the blog world. This time hopefully with a sustainable idea and one that I am so very interested in and passionate about.

But what do I call my little space in the blogging universe? If you remember the beginnings of this internet phenomenon which resulted in picking an email address. This was the coolest thing my young self had yet to do and what did I choose? Space dragon. Yep. Totally true. Later I came to my senses and chose something much better. Briar Rose. (my name is Rosie so it makes so much more sense). But this space. This space needed a name that could not only be a little blogging corner, but also (in my wildest dreams) potentially a business name. Something I could fit on a label if needed. Something catchy yet subtle. Something that embodied me and what I wanted to accomplish. These are lofty goals for something that might not even last a month. And I'm not even sure if I've chosen the right name. However, this is it. Wish me luck!

Welcome to Rose & Toast

.... I am so glad that you're here!

  1. My first impression was: That is the coolest blog header! Good luck on your endeavor. Blogland can explode and sometimes be totally silent. Just remember why you're doing this, and if you are pleased with yourself, that is good reason to keep on going.
    Thank you so much for your kind words on my latest post. You've been very encouraging to me!
