simply inspired*

......some things have got me to thinking lately....and I'm just not able to make this decision on my I was hoping I could have a little help from some wonderful friends who I know will understand.....

This blogging thing is pretty cool, but I must say it is definitely a learning process, kinda like life.  I am wanting to figure out what my blog is truly all about.  Yes, its about our life, but to me its so{so} much more than that.  It is about writing, about inspiration, about fashion, about the seasons,  its about baking, time with friends, dog walks, and learning life lessons.  Its about my faith, my love for my husband and dog, its about my passions, dreams and goals.  I like to think this blog is a way for me to become a better writer, and well, a better person.  Some days I am moody, and some days I am freakishly happy.  My writing most often depends on my mood, good or bad, that is the kind of person & writer that I am.
I am learning what blogging truly means to me, and honestly who I'm doing it for.  My conclusion, well is simple, I'm writing for me.  I will write about what inspires me, I will be true to who I am and not write a post "just because" I'm supposed to.   I may not write every day; because I firmly believe in living life and experiencing it, not just sitting around waiting for it to happen.  Live in the moment and enjoy it.
So my sweet friends, I am in the mood to change things up, and with all this introspective thinking comes an epiphany.  I want to change the name of my blog.  I'm not in love with the current title, I think it is pretty generic, vague, and truly not fulfilling what my blog is all about.  So tell me what you think.  Good idea or bad?  Please tell me honestly, your opinions mean the world to me.

I am so thankful for great friends and writers who inspire & help me stay true to the kind of person and writer that I am and hope to be.

  1. You know Magan and I had this conversation a few months back. My personal opinion is that if you change your blog not change the url to go with ends up really confusing people who already have you linked or saved in their bookmarks. But when it boils down to it, this is your blog and you need to need to feel inspired when you are on it so if you want to change your name, take the plunge!

  2. "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."

    Your blog is great because it's you. Don't let yourself get bogged down with other people's expectations of how often you should post or what your style should be. It's your craft and nobody else can judge that. So, if you want to change the name, I think you should. But don't feel like you have to. This is a happy little corner of the web that I've come to love very much. :)

  3. I always enjoy reading your posts, Katie! Go with your creative gut! :)

  4. I agree with everyone above. If you want to change it, go for it :) I will enjoy reading it no matter what!
