Someone asked me the other day why my blog is called The Glamour Sauce, and how I came up with the name. Although my blog has been on WordPress now for just over two years I had a blog for about a year on blogspot. Please don’t go look for it – it was awful. But, I had settled on the name a long, long time before. Pre-Mesh I had a little store called Saucy where I made system layer clothing. I liked the word ‘saucy’ which find fun and flirtatious with the promise of a little edge sometimes. Saucy became a bit of a nickname for me in Second Life and, in fact, was my display name for almost a year until I met my ex. Very early on he made it very clear he did not approve of the name. In hindsight, all the thinks about me that my name represented, that he claimed he loved, were in fact things he hated. Fun, freedom, that touch of sass…a year later I would hardly recognize those things in myself.
I moved my blog, and started to blog seriously, when he left SL and I was free to do so. I thought about changing the name of the blog…after all, it wasn’t an established blog at that point so it would have been the best time. Keeping the blog name as The Glamour Sauce was, I realise now, part of my sticking two fingers up at him and reclaiming my identity.
