New Face. New NameWednesday, September 04, 2013
As you can see, I not only changed the colors and face of my blog, I gave it a new name.
Why? Why would I go through so much trouble even when Blogger warned me that changing my website name and URL would cause internet chaos?
|This is apparently the internet equivalent of dividing by zero.|
Because when I first started writing my blog I did it for fun and I needed a name (and a URL) before I could even begin writing. So I tried simple things and they were already taken.
So I had Netflix on and The Seven Year Itch was on the suggestions line and I chose it. I chose it because it was easy and convenient and I never thought I would end up liking blogging so much or that I'd ever get a handful of readers. I thought it fit since I do love movies and I do love old vintagey things but now...
It doesn't and probably never did.
I may be a bitch sometimes but I'm also a lot more. And I didn't want to be associated by name (or internet-persona) as someone who complains and complains and does nothing else because that's not fair to me or to the women population in general.
Yes, I rant and I complain but I also love bright colors, owls, and sunflowers. I love laughing and sometimes I even read news articles.
I struggled with whether or not to change my blog name for a while. I looked at some of the blogs I follow and for them their names fit but they also had gimmicks. They cook every Thursday and post baby pictures every Sunday.
I don't do anything...ANYTHING, on a regular schedule. (Except work I guess). So that whole gimmicky name selection was out. And I'm okay with that because I am not a mommy blogger. I am not a complete vintage blogger. Nor a DIY or crafty one.
I get bored easily and love switching from one project to another. I hardly ever finish anything that I start. So my blog and my trying to be like the other blogs just wasn't working out.
So I made a list of adjectives to describe myself and put these two together because I think they define me perfectly...in an abstract-not-really-understanding way.
Sometimes I will bitch about things that I hate. Sometimes I will post pictures of the food I cooked or baked. And sometimes I will post pictures of my life. With no particular rhyme or reason. I will post what I post when I feel like it and when I don't...I won't.
But you can expect to see an eclectic, crazy mix of all kinds of things because I, Valerie Darling am Indecisively Restless.
