Every now and then I think about some changes I’d like to make to my blog. The biggest of which would be changing the name. When I came up with Cara’s Cravings a few years ago, I had no idea where my blog would be nowadays and how it would have evolved. Lately I feel like I’d love a name that’s more creative, catchy, and descriptive. It just seems that every new blog I discover gives me blog-name-envy! Why couldn’t I have just been more creative in the first place?
On the other hand, I don’t want to confuse my faithful readers. Of course, it’s hard to know how much of a niche I really have in the food blogging world. With so many wonderful blogs out there, has Cara’s Cravings become at all recognizable? I really don’t know!
With a new name, I think it would be time for a whole new design. Where’s my personal web and graphic designer when I need them? That part has yet to be figured out, but I love to dream about it.
Of course I’d transfer (most of) my to-date content over, but I think a new name and appearance might really give me a chance to define my place in the blogging world.
If you have a blog, have you considered changing the name and appearance? Have you taken the plunge? If so, how did it work out for you? If you read a lot of blogs, how would you feel if one that you followed took on a new name and a new look? Are you likely to continue following if the blog continues to deliver the same type of content?
Continuing with the theme of trying new things, maybe you’d like to discover a new blog and try some new nut butters. Alright, I know that was not the greatest segue, but I want to thank you if you actually read this far today. So as a reward, perhaps you’ll go check out Love Veggies and Yoga and her awesome nut-butter giveaway going on this weekend. (Not that her blog is so new, but it was new to me until a couple weeks ago!)
Hope you are having a great weekend!
