Why the name “Hometiculous”

If you happen to read my “About Me” page, you might have a glimpse of why I chose the name.

But since I put the question out there, I don’t want to be too assuming.

Let me give you a bit of a back story.

This is not my first name choice.

I had a light bulb moment of my prime pick weeks and weeks before putting my plan together.  Then, I found out that there was already an existing similar domain tackling similar niche.

I was a bit discouraged.

But, it was my bad!  I did not check quite meticulously on that!

There was no trademark conflict nor complaint or whatsoever, it’s just the possibility of issues that may arise in the future.  I consulted experts and they seconded our concerns and thoughts. Hence, we decided to change.

A part of me was a bit hesitant to settle on this new name as I felt it was a bit over the top or might imply a disapproving impression.  However, I focused on the positive side. After a lot of thoughts, I finally convinced myself to say yes to the name “Hometiculous”.

I felt relieved and thankful.  

It was a blessing in disguise.

It felt quite a fit!

If you noticed, it is a playful blend of 2 words – home and meticulous.

I hope it’s obvious.

The core topic of this blog will revolve around home. How to achieve a simplified and inspired life of homemaking by paying attention to little things and making reasonable choices suitable to everyone’s position.

If there is a word that I can fully illustrate the work required in running and sustaining a home, I think of the word METICULOUS, which also happens to similarly describe part of me as a person.

The word “meticulous”  /məˈtɪk.jə.ləs/ according to the dictionary is defined as “very careful and with great attention to detail”.

Other online word application tools refer to and/or relate to it as:

  • Organized
  • Conscientious
  • Crafty
  • Economical

These sum up the very essence of this blog.

I created this website as our family’s online journal which hopefully will help fellow busy mothers and all hardworking homemakers to live a life they deserve while attending to all the concerns of living and managing a home.

Adopting the Aussie slang way, you may stumble across the term homey or homeys from time to time. We refer to this as a homemaker in general.

Anyhow, that’s in a nutshell the answer to why I called this blog its name.
