As you may have noticed, I changed the name of my blog last week!! This has been something in the making for a while now, so I thought I’d share why I decided to rename Bobbins Braids & Beauty.
I created this blog at the beginning of summer 2016 for my AP Language Arts class. This was something that all students signed up for the future course were required to do, but I was extremely excited to start mine because I had been considering creating a blog. As I am somewhat of a perfectionist, I spent probably a week going over different ideas I had for titles. And because I thought I’d focus my blog around sewing, fashion (Bobbins), hairstyles (Braids), and makeup (Beauty), I figured BB&B was perfect. And for last summer it was. But when I started my blog up again at the beginning of this past summer, I felt that the title didn’t really represent my blog and I well enough. I don’t really want to post about sewing, though I do still sew, or makeup; I want a title that says something about me, and is broader, so I can write about anything that interests me.
So once again, I went through the process of picking a new name. I think I thought of Blondie Loves Braids sometime in August. When I first started thinking of new names, I wanted something more personal, a title that said something about me. I thought it would be cool to include my hair color in the new name, like my favorite blogger Amber Fillerup, and Blondie is a nickname my mom’s called me since I was little. I also wanted my name to reference the main focus of my blog: hairstyles.
I’m really excited about this new title! I feel like it is a much better fit, and I can’t wait to see where it leads my blog!
