After six years of this blog, I am toying with the idea of changing the name.
Yes, I know that is a huge branding no-no, but back when I created this blog in August 2006, I never thought it would be as popular as it ended up being. I created it on a lark…a whim…in a moment of spontaneity. At the time, I was thinking it could be a good way to promote my own independent jewelry making business (which no longer exists now) and that it might be a bit of fun. It’s actually been loads of fun and it grew beyond my wildest expectations, but to be honest with you…I never really liked the name.
Because I created it in a fit of spontaneity, I didn’t really spend a lot of time on coming up with a name. I thought, “Hmm, I’m having trouble coming up with a name, I’ll just name it Indie Fixx for now…I can always change it.” Then, BAM, my blog got popular right away and it never seemed the right time to change the name.
So, why now? Why not? Life’s too short to go around with a blog name that I’m not completely happy with.
But I’m not doing THIS spontaneously. I’m gong to ruminate on it. Sleep on it. Mull it around a bit. And, I’m going to ask YOU what you think.
So, what do you think?
Is it a good idea to change the name of this blog from
Indie Fixx to…..something else to be determined?
