Daily Prompt: Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.
Well the answer is quite simple. I started the blog a few years back on another blogging platform and then moved over to WP. I started because I desperately needed a sounding board. The blog was started when I was in the depths of a seriously bad bout of depression and a friend suggested a try blogging. It was good advice and I have been blogging ever since.
Why the name? Well, “Hope” is for me to remember that no matter how dark it gets, there is always hope. I gave myself a little star for surviving that bad state of depression, but I could not continue giving myself a star every time, so the star is there for every time I see hope through the dark and survive.
“The Happy Hugger” and the “hugs* is because I am a very affectionate person and I always feel so empty just leaving a comment without saying “ok, good bye then” so I decided to leave *hugs* when I leave someone else’s post that I have commented on. Unfortunately the *hugs* aren’t always taken up the correct way, so now I only leave *hugs* on another blog when I know for sure it is not a problem for that person and then of course when you come and visit my blog and comment, you will ALWAYS, but ALWAYS get a *hug* because I luvs ya :)
