What does ECV mean anyways?

I wish there was some profound story behind the name ECV Talks. But here it is, as simple as it may be…

I’ve been trying to define and build my “brand” since before it became a common thing to hear about. As soon as I realized my dream was to be a music mogul sometime in elementary school I started trying to come up with a suitable stage name. Record label and business names soon followed.

For some reason in the late nighties I got hooked on alliteration so my name ideas tended to be different words all leading to the abbreviation SSS. However after some feedback from my coworkers while in the property insurance field I changed to E-Class Ventures (the E being my last name). That however is a mouthful to say that eventually got shortened to ECV.  My friend @ABrownAround suggested ECV Talks when I relaunched my blog here on WordPress December 2013. Now occasionally I may use the letters for special events to mean something else like in this post for example.

So that’s the story in a nutshell. How did you come up with the name for your blog, website, or brand?

Despite setting a post schedule in Blogging 201, we’re still behind here. This artwork should have been posted yesterday.

This week we have two more entries from our aspiring artist ASP. These were requested as possible header backgrounds for our Facebook and Twitter pages. Tell us which you prefer.

Of course they still have to be colored before final use.
