What's in a name?

I often get asked where the handle @MakingCentsOfIt began. Right after college, I became a bit of a penny pincher while working as a day-to-day substitute teacher. This led to the creation of my blog Making Cents of It. The name stemmed from a play on the words sense and cents since the idea was to make sense of saving money without becoming overwhelming.
When I began teaching full-time, I was working in math classes before switching to business classes. At this point, I had the Twitter handle for so long and it still made "cents" since I was teaching entrepreneurship, investing, and other financial topics.
Although I stopped blogging about saving money, I still renew the domain every year because I use the accompanying email address. Originally I left the old blog but this past year I learned about link trees and realised it was a great way to utilize the dormant domain as I can keep all my links in one place that matches my handle.
