The domain name for this blog was an inspiration from work many years ago. One task I liked to do was clean up Word documents and PowerPoint slides for my boss, getting all the fonts, colors, indentation and bullets consistent and aligned, and spell checking it all. One day after he presented a slide deck I asked him to send it to me and I would "polish it up". That triggered the thought that I could use "paulish" as a sound-alike for "polish", and that paulishing.com would be a natural extension of that, an amalgamation of my first name, "polish" and "publishing". To my surprise I found that paulishing.com was an available domain name, immediately registered it and eventually used that for my blogs, replacing Blogger's default blogspot.com.
