How To Pronounce My Blog Name

by Christine@TheAums on April 28, 2011 · 18 comments

Mama’s Losin’ ItToday’s post is inspired by Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop, only this time, she included a vlogging prompt: Tell us the story behind the title of your blog. What is it? What inspired it? What other options did you consider? Are you happy with it?


While I actually love the name of my blog, I know it will always be mispronounced. Until now…

I love your blog name! When I was younger, I wanted to get the om symbol on my, get this, neck. Fortunately, I didn't. Great vlog!

Good vlog! Interesting blog name too! I am not familiar with that symbol though. I used this prompt as well.

Your Vlog was great! I did my first one today….you are obviously comfortable in the camera. You made me laugh with how everyone had your name already….too good. Nice to "meet" you and how great to know the pronunciation of your blog name!

You're funny! I like the name of your blog, and I like your vlog. That chant was the perfect ending to it! :)

Hey everyone! I'm so bummed with how Blogger's comment form doesn't let you reply individually. I just want to say thanks for all the positive feedback! I did not start out comfortable in front of the camera, but since I won a gig with "iVoices on iVillage.com" I have been forced to deal with it and treat the camera like a person, sort of. @ Tracy, I bought my "aum" t-shirt at a yard sale and I wish I could wear it standing up. So many of my tops are shorter on me since having 4 babies! This was a fun, and necessary (for me) writing prompt from Mama Kat!

@Jessica…If just one person comes out knowing how to pronounce my blog name, my vlog was worth it, LOL!
@Jessica, this was like the vlog prompt of my dreams! I put some thought into it and went to town with the Sharpie marker!
Thanks for stopping by!

I loved that so many people took Mama Kat up on her challenge to do a vlog. Yours was warm and funny and I'm happy now to know how to pronounce "Aum". I can relate: everyone messes up my name, hence the Queen part – 'cause it rhymes.

@ Queen- Hey, glad to know I pronounced your name right! Thanks for watching!

Great vlog! Wonderful blog! I just love the Halloween pic of your family that you titled "Me and My Aumies"!!! How clever and cute:)

Honestly, I think The Aummess would have been *awesome*. But I totally get establishing your own unique identity and your's is very original! I like that. One day maybe I'll come up with something for mine finally. :-/ Loved your vlog – you had great personality and props and a good story to tell. Well done!

Thank you, Karen! I think 2 Wired 2 Tired is definitely a true to life name although it has me thinking of being so tired that you're always wired on caffeine!
