Stopping for Daisies

Okay so after all that indecision yesterday, I finally made a big decision. I finally decided what I wanted my blog to be about, and what name would fit that. And so now I would like to welcome you to…. (drumroll please)

pink header

Backstory: I was thinking long and hard about what I wanted this blog to be about, and a lot of the names that I was trying to decide on yesterday didn’t really define me or my blog. So I thought about what this blog could be and what I wanted and how I’ve been using the blog already. Well, I always talk about how I don’t have much of a memory and I kind of use blogging as a way of looking back on the things I’ve done, the things I’ve written down… and I always enjoy using my blog as kind of a digital scrapbook of the things that have happened to me, the good stuff I want to remember. So there’s that.

Then the expression “stop and smell the roses” came to my mind, which brings about (to me at least) thoughts of slowing down and taking time for myself, to look at the good in life and appreciate what I can. I want to be that kind of person, for that to be the kind of blog I write.. but since my favorite flowers are daisies I figured I would be “stopping to smell the daisies” instead. Which eventually evolved into Stopping for Daisies, because that’s a much shorter blog title.

So, there you have it. My last blog title/username change. I promise. And, to show you that I’m serious about not changing anymore, I’ve actually gone and given myself a .com blog url:

http://stoppingfordaisies.com

Please bookmark that page/add it to your google reader. The old link will still direct you to this site but who knows for how long (possibly forever because I have no idea how I did what I did, but just to be on the safe side…). And because that username is too long for twitter (grrr twitter), my twitter username is @stopfordaisies, and I would love it if you would follow me there!

Thank your for sticking with me through yet another round of indecision and username changes. I’m really excited about this one and I plan on actually staying with it for hopefully years to come! Seriously!!

    And if you ever get the CSS upgrade and need help modifying the look of your blog, I’m just an email away.
