Glad you asked. According to Wikipedia, the fount of all credible knowledge, it is:
An archipelago, sometimes called an island group, is a chain or cluster of islands. The word archipelago is derived from the Greek ἄρχι- – arkhi- ("chief") and πέλαγος – pélagos ("sea") through the Italian arcipelago. In Italian, possibly following a tradition of antiquity, the Arcipelago (from medieval Greek *ἀρχιπέλαγος) was the proper name for the Aegean Sea and, later, usage shifted to refer to the Aegean Islands
(since the sea is remarkable for its large number of islands). It is
now used to refer to any island group or, sometimes, to a sea containing
a large number of scattered islands such as the Aegean Sea.
But I use it for my blog, for two reasons:
1)Because it's a cool word
2)Because it represents this blog metaphorically. This blog is supposed to show a central image, a guide for how I view music and photography and life in general, through a series of snapshots. A series of images and paragraphs, working together, connected under one name.
islands of throught and image, connected with a name.
insulae de cogitum lumenque, maritus cum nomen.
