Sherrinda It Is

Is anyone having trouble seeing the title of my blog? It wasn't showing up for Katie, so we shall see if it magicically appears today. If you can see it, what do you think?

I thought putting a poll on my blog would clearly show what title to use for my blog. Boy, was I wrong! If anything, I was more confused. All my cyber friends gave me so many things to think about and there were several great ideas.

Kristi, everyone seemed to like your idea and I thought it was very ketchy...er, catchy. But I decided not to use it for two reasons. One, I don't know that I will use a pen name. I suppose I will wait to decide when I get some professional advice. Who knows...maybe my big ol' name will be okay to use. And two, to make Ketch plural might be confusing. It would look like my name is Sherrinda Ketches. I'd hate to introduce myself and everyone go..."What? What do you catch?" Funny, huh?

So I decided to just go with Sherrinda with a tag line. I felt "Her Write of Passage" really spoke to my heart and symbolized where I was on this writing journey. Most rite of passages involve some kind of ritual ceremony that marks a person's passage from one status to another. I feel like I have passed through another phase of my journey, having written a full length novel.

I know there will be other passages I will travel through and each one will mark yet another stage in this writing trek. I'll celebrate each and every one, and invite everyone to party with me...cyber-style.

What passages have you gone through and how have you celebrated?

  6. Good for you!

    I'm not seeing the header title, either. I missed it the other day, as well, but just assumed it was a one-time glitch. :/

  9. Weird...I can see your name when I go to Home, but I can't see it when I go to a specific blog post.
    I really like Write of Passage, too...but my favorite part is your name!

  10. I can see it fine - love the name. I think my write of passage came when my husband first called me a writer. What a milestone. I only celebrated in my heart, but knew I was going to make it.
