What's in a name?

Hey guys! Long time so see, hey?! These past weeks have been so so hectic and crazy and great so I haven't really had time to get on the laptop never mind blog! I had two weeks of solid work and then a lovely week off, which was spent wonderfully. But I'm back now, and will start blogging regularly again this week.

While I've been busy working and relaxing, I've been thinking a lot about this little blog and wondering where I want to go with it, and I think I might of come to a very drastic decision. A change of name. DUN DUN DUUUUN! I already know exactly what I want and I have a whole new blog design/look that I would run with if I do decide to change, I'm just not 100% sure, so I thought I'd ask you my readers. Do you think that a blog name change is blog suicide or do you think it could be a saving grace?

The reason behind this sudden desire? Well I don't really know to be honest. Maybe it's the change in weather? Maybe its all the changes that have been happening in my life? Maybe because I can feel the new year creeping up on me? But I think mainly because I kinda feel like I have outgrown this name. Don't get me wrong, I still love this name and I still love that it sums my loves and my blog brilliantly, but I created this blog at a time in my life where I was finding myself and now I have, and I sort of feel a little held back. Does that even make sense?! Also I would have to change the blogger ID address and I just think that's too much hassle! I know blog follower numbers aren't why I do this but I'm not going to lie, I would be pretty bummed to lose any of you as my followers. Not because the number looks nice on the sidebar, but because I love to read all your comments and I've made and met some amazing people through this blog it would be such a shame to lose all that just for a name.

Saying all this, I've noticed that a few blogs that I follow have changed their names and its been a brilliant change and its just seemed like a step in the right direction. So I would love to know your thoughts on this matter? I think if I do decide, I'll make it live in the new year, so I've got some time to mull this all over.

I promise normal blogging will resume ASAP. Till then, much love to you all xXx

  1. i think as a blog + blogger evolve a name change makes total sense, as long as the name better suits your new direction.

    1. Thanks Tianna, It would definitely suit me more, especially for the more professional and mature direction I want to take this

  2. I completely support your blog makeover - don't get me wrong, it is good already but I believe that sometimes it's the right thing to do something completely different. People change, life changes.. so why should a blog, that reflects everything its author loves and cares about, stay the same? :)

  3. Well, you know I'll be reading and following no matter what you're name or how your blog looks so my vote is for rename and redesign even though I do adore it as is too!

  4. Oh and PS If you decide to change things up (and even if you don't) I'd love to have you write a guest post or two-it could get you more exposure and I'd get to share your aweomeness! Just a thought!
