Many who have been blogging for several years find that the topic or direction of the blog changes. Sometimes, the name we picked for our blog no longer fits.
I have officially changed the name of my blog from Project Healthy Ever After to Living Linda. I originally started Project Healthy Ever After to chronicle my gluten sensitivity and share my gluten free recipes. My first recipe was for gluten free cauliflower mash on January 5, 2011.
My recipes got even healthier after I going through and graduating from Institute for Integrative Nutrition school as a health coach…not that I still didn’t share a indulgent recipe every now and again. And I started sharing health tips.
After I had my hysterectomy in August 2014, I craved comfort food. Even though I used whole foods and healthier ingredients, I didn’t feel that the recipes fit in Project Healthy Ever After … so I started a new blog, Food and Travel Adventures … because I wanted to start sharing travel tips and stories too.
When I created a recipe, I had analysis paralysis about which blog the recipe post should go on … so it didn’t get posted at all. So I decided I really needed one blog where I should share health tips, recipes, travel posts.
I wanted a name that was short and sweet. Both Project Healthy Ever After and Food and Travel Adventures were mouthfuls. Then the name Living Linda popped into my head. Linda means pretty in Spanish (and it is also my first name) and Living encompasses food, health, travel … all of the things I write about.
Overall, I’m happy with my new name. I feel like it better reflects who I am as a blogger
If you’re a blogger, how did you choose your blog name? Are you happy with it? If you’re a blog reader, what do you notice about the names of the blogs you read? Is the blog name more important or the blogger’s name?
