The meaning behind my blog name. #Blogtober16

I am taking part in Blogtober16 and will be writing posts with various themes/prompts throughout October....


When I first started blogging I had a blog called Kimmer's World....That is long gone....I felt a bit meh about it and wanted something to do with the kids so I came up with Northumberland Mam.....

There is no great story behind it....Not much imagination went into the name....I am a mam and I live in Northumberland.....lol Voila! Northumberland Mam was created! People say why not Northumberland Mum? Easy, my kids call me mam. I think it's a northern thing. If they do call me mum I always seem to look at them if they are speaking a foreign language. hahaha

I checked on Google if there was anything similar.....There wasn't.....Phew! That's the great thing about living up here there are less bloggers than down in the south....I can have where I live in my name without treading on anyone's toes....

As the kids get older it will be fine....I will always be a mam....The only time I will have a problem is if I move out of Northumberland.....Then I will look like a right idiot! Trying to explain that yeah I used to live in Northumberland but don't anymore....It's a good job I have no plans to move....hehehe

What I find funny is that I am contacted at least once every fortnight being invited to an even in London or somewhere too far for me to travel at short notice. It sometimes makes me wonder if people actually click on that Northumberland is the place where I live....Do know where Northumberland is? It's way, way up here in the North East of England! Bordering on Scotland. lol

  1. My dad is from the North East so I totally get that you say Mam instead of Mum. I do quite like your old blog name Kimmer's world as well though. I love the idea PRs think you will pop down to London at the drop of a hat!

      I always think it's funny when they offer traveling expenses too when they don't realise where I'm from...lol

  3. Yeah you would look a bit silly if you moved haha I think it's a bit odd that it's so obvious where you're based and unlikely to make a quick trip down South to go to an event for a couple of hours! #Blogtober16

      I think it's obvious where I live....It would be nice to be able to just pop to London but it would take hours...lol
