Blogtober16 - Meaning behind my blog name

Almost half way through the Blogtober challenge, and time to tell you the story of how Planetjodie came to be!

It is a relatively short story.

I decided to write a blog about 3 months ago, after failing to find something to entertain me after being unemployed for a while. When starting up, I remembered I had set up a blog called "Planet Jodie" and only posted one thing. I deleted the post and started from fresh. It seemed perfect.

I chose not to write about a specific genre, and write ideas that came to me. An opinion I wanted to share, review, diary of travel, just anything that came to mind. My Dad always jokes that I'm different and from Planet Jodie, so I think the name sums it up there!

Look forward to seeing you tomorrow to show you the timeline of my day as part of blogtober.

    1. It is a pretty ace name. Does your name ever get confused with Judy/Judith?

  3. Sometimes the perfect name is just there waiting for you to come along and use it. I like the idea of you being uniquely different and individual.

    1. Thanks! That's so , yeah it was strange how it came about. Had blogs before and they haven't lasted longer than 2/3 posts for different reasons...

  7. I think it's great when blogs don't have a specific niche and just write whatever they want.

  13. It's good that you had the name already, it's always good to have a generic name which doesn't attach you to a particular niche incase you decide over time to change x
