On Chocolate and Gold Coins

After deciding to start a blog, I had to think of what to name it. Naturally, the really good names have been taken. For example, I thought the name Instapundit would be a good one for a blog but it turns out that someone already took that one.

Chocolate and gold coins are two of my favorite commodities. And naming a blog that deals with economic issues after commodities makes sense, especially commodities that symbolize consumption and income. However, the name “Chocolate and Gold Coins” refers to something else. It refers to types of writing you might find on this blog. Gold coins are something with intrinsic value. You might find something like that here buried deep under the rubbish if you search long enough. Chocolate is another commodity altogether. It is something to be enjoyed briefly and soon forgotten, like a frivolous but fun piece of writing. There will be more chocolate than gold in this blog. In any case, I hope you find something you like here.

  • What a well written and concise descriptive of your blog! I've just come from reading several posts of yours and to tell the truth, I've found a splended combination of the two commodities ~ which brings to mind one of my favorite old fashioned candies... those little gold foil wrapped chocolate coins.
    I have truly enjoyed the flavor of your writing. Great stuff!

  • Seems to be both edible, edible Gold is already used in food industry as gold leaf for decor to add gourmet design and expensive value, though, it tastes tasteless.
