So I have a thought I want to run by my faithful readers. A few years ago, when I started The Redheaded Princess, I loved the name but at the same time...a part of me cringed a little because it's not 100% me. Yes, it's a little silly, calling oneself a Princess, but at the same time it took me years to feel that I was one...in the eyes of God I mean. It was a sort of self-proclamation. So now, a few years later, I'm looking at my blog and though it's cute, I think I want something that speaks a little more of the real me. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a "Princess" in God's eyes, and I understand my self-worth (although on bad days sometimes I struggle...but I'm only human...it's a process). Also, I'm not too keen on the idea that if someone forgets to put the word "THE" in front of redheadedprincess.com that they will end up on a nasty porn site. My daughter and some of her friends read my blog, so I really get nervous that they may accidentally end up in the wrong neighborhood of the blogosphere. That's a big deal! Another reason, I just think that something needs to change. I want to define my blog a little more. I'm a DIY/Food blogger with a little Lifestyle sprinkled in. Do you agree? So here's the name I came up with. I think it more accurately defines who I am while still giving props to my readheadedness:
A Ginger Mess
"A DIY & Food blog sprinkled with a little Lifestyle"
(this I'm willing to change and tweak)
Why "A Ginger Mess"? Well, because that's what I am. My life is a beautiful mess. I'm being pulled in a million directions between my family, school, job, church and oh yes, my million hobbies. I love my mess of a life. It's chaotic and loud and never stops, but it's wonderful at the same time. I figure, let's call a spade a spade why don't we. I'm a mess. (though I act like a princess at times). I can't narrow anything down to one specific thing and I'm one of those people that is always changing and never stops trying to learn new things. Sometimes I wish I could just quit and sit home doing nothing (my husband would love that! lol) but I just can't. I've always got something new on the horizon.
What are your thoughts? Would you come over with me if I switch? Do you have any suggestions? Please, I'm all ears. This is going to be a big process for me if I do it so any advice you have let me have it...but please be nice.
