I’m glad to announce that I updated my blog name to Lemmas and Submodalities.
I’d say that setting a blog title has been the most challenging thing that I did for this website. I’ve been thinking of catchy yet meaningful words that would personify this site ever since I decided to blog. Believe it or not, it took me five months to come up with this name. In fact, it was only through a spark of the moment which ignited my brain cells to verbalize this thought. And to be honest, I don’t even remember how these words surfaced on my subconsciousness. But, I didn’t really mind if I had to wait forever till I come up with this name since I always knew what I wanted. I just really needed to be patient enough and dug deeply into my innermost thoughts.
What does it mean?
Lemma (Greek λήμμα; from mathematics) is a proposition proved or accepted for immediate use in the proof of some other proposition.
Submodality is the smallest building block of our thoughts something that helps us remember what we have seen, heard, felt, smelt, and tasted both externally and imagined.
So why Lemmas and Submodalities? After five months of blogging, most of my writing is all about proving my points and insisting my ideas no matter how profound or shallow my thoughts were. Also, my themes were usually taken from a small content, and then explored and amplified based on my understanding of the world and my senses. Hence, Lemmas and Submodalities is a perfect quintessence of how I perceive this blog–my thoughts.
So, looking forward to this Fall Season, I’m planning to have some minor changes on my blog. I’m not going to stick with my Saturday schedule, although I will most likely publish a post on that day. Also, I’m challenging myself to have at least seven posts a month. I may sound ambitious, however, I realized that if I’m going to do the same routine, I will just get bored. Thus, changing my old habits will make me innovative and will pump some creativity.
- Just a small request, for all those who included me on their blogroll, I will greatly appreciate if you will update my blog name from SnippetTee’s Blog to Lemmas and Submodalities. Thank you~
It’s a really good title. Very memorable, although it’ll be a while until I stop saying “Lemmas and Subnormalities”.
Haha, that’s okay at least it’s still under the normal category.
That’s a great blog title. Together with your blog’s description, it says exactly what your blog is about.
Well, I think it’s true that once in a while we have to make some changes here and there, set new goals just to keep things fresh and different. That said, I hope to read at least seven posts a month from you! =)
Thank you, I’m glad that you find the connection between the name and the blog apparent.
I really feel like I’m being ambitious when I said I want to post at least seven every month, but I guess there’s no harm trying. Hopefully I can do it.
I didn’t understand a word, probably because English is not my primary language, but gonna update your name in my links anyway. Congratulations on finally choosing name, it was hard for me as well.
Lemma is an accepted statement used to prove another statement, and Submodality is the basic structure of how we perceived something for example you like the portrait because the paint used is very glossy (the quality of being glossy is one of the things that made you like the painting).
I hope I explain it quite clearly, if you find it vague please feel free to tell so and I’ll try to give a much better example. Anyway, thank you for updating my link and it’s an honour to be added on your list.
I thought something felt very different here. Guess changing the name of the blog can have that kind of effect.
That’s a really memorable name you have there and I’m glad to see you like it so much. Congratz on coming up with a name after 5 months; it must’ve been bugging you for so long. Guess I’ll update my blogroll to reflect your name change now, too, so it isn’t out-of-date. Looking forward to what you’ll be posting during this Fall season.
It’s only the name that I updated, it’s still the same blog as before. I really wish that the name doesn’t give an awkward or off-putting effect.
Btw, thank you for updating my link, I hope it’s not a hassle for you. Hopefully fall anime season will be an interesting one. I’ll be looking forward to your posts as well. ^^
Gah! Well then, now I have to go through all this effort to change your link…:D
Sorry, but I promise that this is going to be the first and last time that I’m going to change my blog name. Thanks Justin! ^^

I’ve already updated my links right when you came up with the name on Twitter, no worries there! I didn’t know that you were still considering a blog name, but as I’ve already said this to you, I do agree that it fits with your blog as well. ^_^
Thank you so much effie-chan~ To be honest, your positive response on my tweet assured me that this name really sounds good and fits my blog. ^^
Wow, it’s been… 7 years since I last heard the word “lemma”, which was back in high school. Coming up with a blog title is hard, I gave up after a year and just left mine as “Nopy’s Blog”. I guess I should update your blog title on my blogroll now :)
I also don’t know what to name my blog that’s why I named it as SnippetTee’s blog. It took me quite a long time to formulate one.
Thank you Nopy, and sorry for the hassle of updating the link. ^^
You and yer crazy maffs, Snippy! D<
Seriously though, I always read this as Lembas, and then had a hankering to reread LotR. Though Elven bread hardly has anything to do with mathematics.
Lembas, or do you mean lambda? Ohh, I gave up on LotR. I read the first book and 3/4 of the second book then gave up. I thought it’s going to be an easy read just like The Hobbit but LotR’s Old English bored me to death. I rather read and learn Latin.
I had never heard of lemmas or submodalities before, but now that I know what it is, I have to say it fits. But SnippetTee sounds more iconic and easy to remember… I’ve taken a liking to that name.
Coming up with names are hard. If there is anything I always hesitate to do, it is so decide the name. You have to live with it, you know.
Thank you ^^ I also love SnippetTee, but it’s my name and I want something different for this blog. After all, the thoughts written on this site didn’t just come from me, but also from the comments of the readers.
I love how almost every time I visit your blog, I learn a new word or two.
Anyways, good job on coming up with a blog name ^^
Thank you ^^ I only knew Lemma because I major in Math and I read submodality from a jigsaw puzzle manual way back when I was a kid. They’re not too common so I decided to use them to give a whimsical effect on my blog, haha. ^^
I’m now waiting for the new posts. :]
As of now, I’m also waiting for some ideas to visit my brain.
I’ll try to post soon. ^^
Oh, I didn’t post any hugs and congratulations on your evolution mademoiselle. Well then, congrats and a big hug to you milady. I look forward to even more posts from your lovely cerebral epicenter.
Please don’t expect too much, I’m still uncertain if I can pass my own challenge. Anyway, merci, Monsieur OG for the congrats and big hug.
Awesome title! Time to update my blogroll. ^ ^
Thanks, Yi. ^^

I wish I had good naming sense like you.
Thank you, but naming this blog wasn’t easy for me.
New… design? :o
Yes, just to have a fresh start this fall.
