You call it what???


I am a proud member of the Outdoor Blogger Network.  It is a great site that brings people like me together to share our outdoor blogs.  You may have noticed their tag on the right hand side of my page.  They feature bloggers each week, have giveaways, and inspire topics in which to write.  They have asked members this week to tell everyone how their blog got its name.  I have had several people ask me about the title of my blog, so I will be glad to help the OBN this week!

Brave Eagles Hunt with Antique Brownings came about very simply.  I was sitting in my office trying to come up with a name for this little blog and I was not getting very far.  I was not even sure that I could do this blogging thing.  I had been encouraged by my preacher to give it a try and my mother had recently started a blog of her own, so I decided to give it a shot.  Being a marketing major, I turned to an old trick that I learned when you are trying to come up with a unique idea.  I got out a piece of paper and starting brain storming by writing things down that interest me or best describe who I am.  As I was filling up my paper I decided that maybe I could do a little play on words for the title of my blog.

I'm an "All In" type of guy.  What I mean by this is that I am the type of person who is 100% committed to the things that I deem important.  If you are a manufacture and I like your product, then I am definitely your man.  I will use nothing else!  If I am a fan of your team, then I am your biggest fan and will fight for my team until the bitter end.  If I enjoy a hobby then I will work until I am the best that I can be at that particular hobby.  With that in mind I started looking at my scribblings on my little piece of paper and started picking things out.  I found the Atlanta Braves, The Georgia Southern Eagles, hunting and fishing, refinishing antique furniture, Browning shotguns and many more items that I could use for a name but settled on these.  Thus was the birth of...

Brave Eagles Hunt with Antique Brownings!!

I thought it did a pretty good job of describing the things I like.  With almost a year of blogging under my belt I have come to realize that I write about a lot more than just these things, but I hope that you get the basic idea!

Thanks Outdoor Blogger Network for all that you do!

I should have asked some time ago, but it's all clear now. I'm not sure if my blog title leaves anything to be desired... Did join the OBN this week too, looks like a great place to be part of... take care, DEDH
