Dawn over a ‘As Sweet As Cinnamon’ has asked the question – how did you get the name for your blogspot and that got me thinking, yep a number of people have asked me a similar question… how did you get the name of your shop, By Hoki Quilts?
My shop and blogspot both have the same name, mostly because as a new shop I just didn’t have the funds to start a website but wanted to get our name ‘out there’. I didn’t realise at the time that blogging would become such a part of my life and I totally underestimated the number of friends I would make, some of whom I have been fortunate to meet and some who are now very close friends that I really enjoy spending time with. But back to the question.
By Hoki is an exclamation really, if I was living in Australia I think the closest would be By Crikey! Plus… Our shop is 6km north of our local town, Hokitika, fondly know as ‘Hoki’. So, taking the exclamation and adding it to the fact that we are BY Hoki the name seemed fairly obvious throw in the word quilts and ta daa, By Hoki Quilts was born, blog and shop.
So there you have it, how did you get your blog name?
have a good day
