So, the reason behind my blog’s name.
Well, I registered the domain Spellbound long before I even started playing WoW. I’ve had the domain for close to 10 years now I suspect. Spellbound is a word I’ve always loved, don’t ask me why – and I’ve used the domain itself for many things.
It was originally my personal website, but there really wasn’t much on it other than my personal blog (which is still around, but in a different folder and not the root) and some information and photos/stories/art.
When I decided to start a WoW blog I wasn’t quite sure where I was going. I knew nothing of the WoW blogging community (I discovered it after starting the blog at which point I was awed) and was really just writing for friends.
The original name of my blog was Girls Don’t Play WoW. Not to shout out that “hai ima gurl lolz”, but rather because I always found it a rather stupid statement (since women obviously do play) – and the title on my blog was rather sarcastic/ironic.
However, as I got more used to WoW blogging and my blog wasn’t actually about women in WoW but more of a general blog, I eventually decided to change the name. Since my root domain was pretty much unused – I went for Spellbound.
I’m trying to think of what Spellbound originally was to me, but other than the tentative title of a story I was writing I can’t think of anything. It’s just one of those words that you get attached to (like ‘decadent’) – and since my main is a Warlock is seemed to suit the site rather well.
How did you choose the name for your blog?
