I’m starting off my 30 Day Blog Challenge with the meaning behind my blog name.
I have started many blogs over the years and never found a niche or idea I like; usually I’ve managed all of about three posts and given up. I also only write what I thought people would want to read and wasn’t particularly honest.
When I was on maternity leave I used to read lots of blogs and they really helped me through some tough times. I never thought of writing one myself, never really had any desire.
Well I say I didn’t have any desire – I have always loved writing and always dreamt of writing stories and maybe even a book, I just never new where to start or thought I could make something of it.
What would I write? I had lots of short story ideas and ideas for long books but what I really needed to do was get my own thoughts out and written down.
I had a few sessions of therapy in November 2016 and my therapist told me to keep a diary; which I did for all of about three days and couldn’t be arsed.
I came across a blog on Facebook about PND and thought about how blogging could be my outlet, could there be other people feeling like me?
One evening in December 2016 I decided to set up a free WordPress blog and just write whatever came into my head.
I remember sitting with no idea what my blog would be called until I got to the point where I had to enter a domain/blog name.
In my head I wanted to have a name that showed who I was; it had to be witty, funny, sarcastic, and reflect my constant stress as a parent and person.
I always say in times of stress “is it wine time yet” and I’m a bit of a Prosecco whore. Into my head popped Pass the Prosecco. Earlier that day I had been teaching the mancub how and when to say please and thankyou, and the whole day had been “pass mummy the remote… PLEASE” and so on.
So I typed in ‘Pass the Prosecco… Please’ and it felt right, just like when you find your favourite cheese, the love of your life or any other similar soppy shit.
So there you go – Pass the Prosecco… Please – there is a reason behind it, I’m not just a pisshead 🙂
