what's in a name? I NEED your help

Should I change the name of my blog?

I've gotten this feedback from a few people but I'm so scared to take the leap. Is this something I should seriously consider?

The argument is favor of the change has been that I'm not considered "frumpy"... does that warrant a name change?

Just curious if people think it's a good idea or not.. and then there's the whole finding a new name.

What do you think?


For taking the time to read, here's a super cute pic of mini-me (yes, I bride my readers with cute pics of my child, sue me!)

  1. What's your prime focus for the blog as a whole? Are you going to stay fashion-focused? If so, the name could still be appropriate as a way of chronicling your journey from frumpy to fashionable. Or you could just update to confessions of a (formerly) frumpy mommy and not have to change your url.

    1. hard to say if I'll be fashion-focused forever. I want it to be a space where I can write about whatever.
      I also thought if I didn't change the name/url I could change my logo thing to something like you suggested and leave it at that

  2. I was going to suggest adding formerly in as well, like Chelsea. Easy change and that way once you get going more you can figure out your focus!

    1. I guess it all depends if you plan on changing your everything...URL included.

  3. I thought about changing my name as well about three years ago, but in the end stuck with my original one. BUT I'd been blogging for three years already and it was going to be such a hassle. BUT if you wanted to change it, now would be the time :)

    My only advice would be something short with a URL that people will remember. Good luck if you do it!

  4. Personally, I like the name of your blog. I think in some cases it tempts moms who feel frumpy to click on it, and then they see your wonderful blog and realize they can make a change.

  5. I agree with Lana, I really like the name of your blog. If you were to make a change, I would go with the other suggestions of adding the (formally). Can't wait to see what you decide!
