When I decided to blog about coffee and writing, I needed a name. Coffeepad is what came to mind, a mash-up of the tools of what this blog is all about — good coffee and stories scratched on a pad of paper. Luck would have it that WordPress just came out with a pad-of-paper-looking blog template inspired by Apple’s Notepad app, which ironically is the same app I often use on my iPhone to furtively jot down (or peck?) ideas or things to remember. In fact, cryptic notes for a future blog post are saved there right now. Just awaiting the move from one pad to another.
