So What's The Deal With Your Blog?

24.5.15


-- It's time to give you a low-down of what's 
been going on my mind --

As you're all aware, I have officially changed my blog name, and I'm not going to lie, I've been feeling pretty anxious about it all for the past two days. Purely because I have to wait for Bloglovin' to transfer my followers. In a way, it feels nice, like a fresh start. So, I'm going to tell you how I feel, because if I let it out, hopefully I'll feel better.

I started this blog with annaboho.blogspot in February last year. I'm not going to lie, I did think about this current name but dismissed it (regrets), so I scrambled around for a name that sounded good. So I chose my middle name Anna and put it with the style boho. Really, I shouldn't have dived in with such a name, I should have taken a couple of days to think about it. At the time I like the boho style, but now, not so much. And very recently I've been thinking about the name, swaying to 'no I don't want to change it' to 'I want to, it's not me anymore'. And you know you have to change it when you start feeling embarrassed by the name. I shuddered at the thought of forever being known by that name. It wasn't as catchy as other bloggers I loved, and it wasn't something I was proud of anymore.

Sure, the contents of the blog are like my baby, the act of writing a post and having all these wonderful people read it makes me so happy. But I wanted a name to scream me! So Franalibi was born. And why did I choose this name? Well, Fran because it's my name and Alibi because it is the name of the song that means a lot to me. It's from my favourite band 30 Seconds to Mars, and the lyrics always make me feel really emotional. That's why it's the one. It's been my instagram name since forever, so it's really become a part of me now. And putting it on my blog name makes me feel so happy now.

So, what's going to happen now?

Well, I've changed my header, and I'm going to keep the theme. And when I get a job I'm going to buy a lovely theme. My posts will have more variety, and I will try to inject more of me into it. I'll change the names of some series and try to improve everything. As of today, I won't be posting till Tuesday night or Thursday, as I need to study for my exams and I don't want to write any proper posts until everyone's linked to my new blog.

So, that's it, I'm taking a break and I'll see you on the other side. xx

  1. Fran, you do know you can change your old blogspot to a different name right? Here's a short tutorial - but basically, you can go to settings > basic > under publishing, you can change the URL. That way you don't lose all your old content!
