Naming a blog is tough. Naming a child is tough. Good thing I don't have to think about that. :)
This blog is in an interesting stage because I am transitioning it over from a public journal for friends and family to a lifestyle blog that I want to consistently post on for anyone to read. I'm trying to beef up the quality and quantity of my posts and maintain aesthetics when it comes to posting and my blog's overall feel. I started taking blogging seriously two months ago, but I named (and started') this blog 1.5 years ago.
During the blog name-thought-process I knew I didn't want my name to be in the title (I.e. Musings of Abby). I didn't want the name to be something too narrow like Minneapolis Girl, because then I would feel this invisible pressure to only blog about Minneapolis. The same would be true if I had fashion, sports, or art in the title. I just didn't want my blog to be limited.
I wanted something simple and a bit abstract. I didn't want it to be cliche or boring (Don't we all?). I wanted it to be a platform where I can share what's going on in my life.
The name BECOMING seemed to fit the bill.
I still like the name, but I wish it was a little bit more light-hearted and maybe more content specific. But for now, I'm content with this blog and its name.
Do you blog? How do you feel about your blog's name?
