What's In a Name? A Conversation With My Blog

Oh hi, Blog. I didn't see you there.

Actually, that's a lie. I've been avoiding you. Sorry. Try not to take it personally. It's not you. It's me. 

Remember how the last time I wrote in you, I talked about all the changes in my life? Well, something else might need to change, Blog. 

Your name. 

Even though this name has only been around for two years, I feel that you and I have outgrown it. I've realized that half the reason I avoid writing in you is because your name doesn't feel like an adequate reflection of me. And it's important that I'm proud of you, Blog, otherwise I will neglect you. Which is shitty of me, because blogging is a gratifying creative outlet and it makes me happy. I've connected with others through blogging, and I want to continue to do that. 

So, your name is getting changed. But don't be upset about it. The new name is weird and unique and I think you'll like it. And even if you don't like it, it doesn't matter because you are not real and can't actually have opinions. I literally own you, Blog. 

FUN FACT! Your new name is actually a nickname made up for me by my friend Ryan, who is so hilarious and creative that he's writing a novel right now! So that's special.

But, most importantly, this new name isn't loaded with all of the negative emotions that have permeated my life over the past two years. I'm sure you understand.

In case you were wondering, Blog, all of the old posts we've shared together will still be here. The header will look different and the URL will be different. As for our beautiful, delightful, encouraging friends who feature us in their blogrolls, the link to the old blog will go directly to the new one, so they don't have to change their blogrolls right away. 

I'm not sure if this will change what I write about with you. I guess we'll have to see. I have a lot of interests and I'm starting several new things lately and, as we both know, life is remarkably unpredictable, for better or worse. We've gotta learn to go with the flow. I think we can do it. 

I feel better, Blog. I'm glad we had this talk.
