Happy Monday, everyone! Today’s post is going to be short but hopefully fun. There are a lot of great blogs out there with awesome names, and I want to know how you came up with yours.
Here’s the story behind my blog name, and it’s not what you think. Turning The Page isn’t a reference to writing or reading. It’s actually a nod to Bob Seger’s classic song Turn The Page. Why? Because it’s the first song my husband and I ever danced to.
Back in August of 1998, he was still my boyfriend, and we’d gone to the Iowa State Fair with a friend. After spending too much time in the beer tent, we headed across the road to a hole-in-the-wall bar called Gene’s. I knew Rob was too far gone when he wanted to dance, but I was happy to go with the flow. Turn The Page came on, and he pulled me onto the dance floor, something he’d never done in several months of dating. He had two left feet and sang off key, but the look in his eyes as he stared into mine was something I’ll never forget. That was the moment for me. I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him.
When it came time to name the blog, I couldn’t think of a better title. That night propelled me into a new stage in my life, and so did blogging. Granted, one is bit more meaningful than the other, but you get the idea.
