I've had conflicted feelings about this. About my blog's name. At first I wanted to name it something like 'my ebbs and flows with infertility' but that seemed too long & cumbersome and the only thing that kept sticking was my infertility woes.
What I didn't like, though, was the negative aspect to the word 'woes'. I even did synonym searches on it and it seemed to be defined as: anguish, affliction, sadness, despair, misery, wretchedness. Not fun.
And while I couldn't figure out the right creative way to describe my ebbs and flows, and I was just eager to start blogging, I chose 'woes'.
But I'm conflicted because overall, I'm a positive person. And this 'woe' word really doesn't describe me. And I was worried that people wouldn't be attracted to my blog because of its downtrodden name. But I've decided that 'woe' is what we feel a lot of times - and why we've sought each other out. If everything was joyful, we probably wouldn't be blogging.
I still love seeing blog names like:
