So…did ya notice the blog name change? I decided it was time. There are soooo many blogs out there that had similar names to mine and I didn’t want people confused or mixing us up. I needed something unique, so I came up with this logo:
watermark-9885258
And so people would still know it’s me, I added the last part:
malebutton-2652496
(one of my new buttons!)
So I know people are wondering…what the heck does male & Sweet Pea mean, & why did you change your blog name to that?
Believe it or not, I didn’t just put these names together at random. male is something I call my daughter & Sweet Pea is what my mom always called my son when he was a baby. I trying to think of creative blog names and it was hard. Like really hard. I’m horrible with naming things. Everything was too vague, long, or already taken. So I decided to try playing around with my nicknames. Realizing I had none, I went on to the kids’ nicknames. That’s where male & Sweet Pea came from. I like that “a day in the life” is still there but can easily be shortened when needed. You’ll notice the blog URL is still the same. It’s a huge hassle to change that and I’d probably lose a lot of my followers. I’m not willing to risk that so it will remain the same…for now at least.
So what do you think?! Yay, nay? I mean, it’s already done so hopefully the name doesn’t totally suck.
Hey, did you see that I’m moving? Again? For like the 20th time? Well this time it’s just a few blocks away & into a bigger place. More on that here.
Oooh! I read a really good book this week. It’s the 4th installment to The Maze Runner series. This is actually a prequel to the first 3 and it was amazing! I couldn’t put it down. In fact, I read the entire thing on Friday. Yeah…I have a problem, I know.
