Gavin Richardson over at The Methoblog asks that question.
I had for a long time put off starting up a blog, even though I had been reading them since The Corner debuted in 2001. Then, on a whim, I decided that it was time to create a blog. It was 11 PM and I was already in bed, but I got up, pulled up Blogger.com, and started to work.
I needed a name, and I wanted mine to be derivative of the Bible. But all the good ones were taken. If I had it to do all over again, I would have chosen Strangely Warmed in reference to a John Wesley quotation. That would have served a theological purpose as well as been weird enough to reflect my personality and interests to those unfamiliar with the phrase.
But alas, I didn't think of that one at the time, and all of the good names were taken. So my wife, trying to get some sleep, called out "How about Locusts and Honey?" That name was not taken, so I selected it.
Thus my media empire was born.
How about you? How did your blog get its name?
