Welcome && The Reason Behind the Name




Welcome, I suppose, to Archipelago. I intended for this blog to be... a bit different than some. It is mostly to record my thoughts day to day. Nothing private, just my deep thinking. It is going to be used as a mechanism to relieve stress in a way. That isn't the best description, but it is the best I can do.

The reason behind the name - Archipelago - is my way of thinking.
Quote:

Noun: archipelago (archipelagos,archipelagoes) `aa(r)-ku'pe-lu`gow

1. A group of many islands in a large body of water

That is what WordWeb Online has defined it as.
I was thinking about what to call my blog or website, so I was exploring different words, and the word archipelago had been in my mind for the past few days/weeks. So, I then looked up the definition, just to be 100% sure that I was thinking of the right thing, and I had a sudden inspiration.

If you think of it this way, Archipelago is a very fitting name. The group of many islands is the group of many web pages that make up the website, the archipelago. And the large body of water is the Internet, infinitesimally large and made up of millions and millions of websites, blogs, and the like. So, I thought, it was a very fitting name indeed. And that was how I decided upon Archipelago.
