This week for I must confess the prompt is ‘ if you could do it all over again (or if you did have a blog), what would your blog name be and why?’.
I must confess that there have been times over the last few months where I have thought about changing my blog name but I have no idea to what. The reason behind my second guessing is the sheer amount of ‘musings’ blogs there are out there.
I must confess that if I had my time over again I would probably research the name a little better so that I could get something a little more unique. I am pretty unoriginal when it comes to making up usernames etc so I usually just use a variation of my initials.
I must confess that I wouldn’t changed my blog URL to my own name. I have thought about it but it doesn’t really appeal to me.
I must confess that if I did change my URL to my name my Google results would probably be better because at the moment the first page of search results for my name is all things that I have posted somewhere on the internet. It makes the whole google your name and see what comes up quite boring.
I must confess that I most likely spent hours trying to come up with the name for my blog..I really am that unimaginative when it comes to making up names. I do however wish that I had picked something a bit smaller. Typing Musings of the Misguided into the search bar etc gets a bit monotonous.
I must confess that when it all comes down to it though I really do love the name of my blog. Even if it is a name that is a bit overdone. Even if it is a pain in the arse to type sometimes. It has become a little part of me and I love the places that it has taken me. If you had told me 3 years ago that I would know all of the awesome people that I do, I wouldn’t believe you.
I must confess that I am loving the space that I have created. I love the feedback that I get and I love that I have this space to talk about Mental Health and it’s effects. I love that I am doing my part to help rid the world of the stigma attached to mental illness. I love the people that my blog has allowed me to meet, both online and in real life.
I must confess that I probably wouldn’t change a thing.
