Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.
My blog’s title, amateurxpress was selected after many discussions with my mum and my sister who was already writing a blog for over a year. Amateur literally means: a person inexperienced or unskilled in a particular activity. I settled with this term because writing had never been my sort of thing since grade 1. After 7th grade when I was applying for one of the biggest schools in my city, it was my sister who got me prepared for my English test and even until 12th grade, my essays were much of a joke (between us two sisters). But in 6 months vacations after college my siblings convinced me that my writings are not that bad I should give it a shot at blogging. But still, My writings are that of an amateur.. Aren’t they?
As for the ‘xpress’ part, It is dual meaning in my blog
1) to put (thought) into words (That’s what I do on my blog)
2) Train of thoughts.
And that’s how this blog name came into existence 🙂
