Puddin’ is a nickname that my Dad calls me. When I was growing up, he began calling me that name. When I was a teenager, I asked him to stop – because, I didn’t like it. He did – for many years. Then, he started using it again. I realized that I wasn’t going to get him to stop because it was just something that he liked – so, I got used to it. When I decided to start this blog, I needed something unique in the title and the nickname “Puddin'” came to mind.

I retired late last year and I bought a used, white, Ford Econoline cargo van in early January.  I’ve been reading on the internet about others who travel and have trailers, vans, trucks, and busses. They named their vehicles and I decided to give a name to my van. I thought that the name “Vanna White” described her enough that others in the social groups would understand immediately ‘what to look for’.

So, now the blog name became Puddin’_in”VannaWhite” – but the wordpress naming conventions wouldn’t let me put in the uppercase letters, quotes and underlines. At the time of creating the blog, I decided to use the name without the quotes and underlines.  Using the wordpress creation tool, as you put something in the name, and there is an immediate feedback as whether or now the typing is valid for the product.
