Yep, the blog is back, baby!!
First questions first: what triggered the name change?
Well, 26 Years and Counting was originally a blog I started over three years ago just so I could learn wordpress. That’s it. There was as much thought put into the name as “I should learn wordpress”. You see, up until that point, I had blogged on Posterous, and LiveJournal. I was on LiveJournal back in the invitation-only days. Yep. I’m that old. And that geeky. It was a HUGE thing when a Harry Potter fandom friend sent me an invitation code.
Only something happened. The blog grew. I found other bloggers. Blogging in the modern sense
I also aged. I turn 30 later this year …and 26 Years and Counting stopped suiting.
I thought for ages about what to change my blog name to. I think it was about a year from knowing I needed to change my name to picking a name. Then it took me even longer to get the behind the scenes stuff done properly. Thankfully, if you click on any old links it should take you to the post with the new URL. That’s the theory 🙂
Of course, if I was one of those super organised and fancy bloggers, I would probably have a shiny new headshot to go with this post. But I still don’t like being in front of the camera, so that will come one day. Maybe.
Well, I’m normal. To me. We are all normal to ourselves. We all have normal to us. Plus, my name as a suffix is pretty cool. To me. Again, perspective.
Do you have any questions about the rebrand? Have you ever rebranded or considered rebranding yourself?
