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:
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.
