HELP! What's in a Name?

Okay friends, here's the deal. I seriously need YOUR help on this one. I've been toying at this idea for a few months and I can't come to a decision!

I've been blogging for 2 years now. When I started, I barely read any other blogs, didn't know about the amazing blogging community and I didn't really have a direction for my blog. I blogged because I wanted to update my family about our life in Pittsburgh - 1400 miles away. Enter, A Glimpse of the Gouglers. It made sense, I liked the whole "G" concept. It worked!

Here I am two years later and at a very different point in my "blogging life." I know what I like to right about: fitness, food, fashion, running, life and love. I know it's a still a bit all over the place, but who's life can truely focus on one realm? {Certainly not this scatterbrain.}

So here's are the real questions...

Do I consider changing the name of the blog or am I in too deep?

Will people "forget" me if I change the name?

Does it really make a difference if I make a change?

Should I stick with what I've got?

To be quite honest, if I do decide to change the name, I'm not sure what it would be! So if you think I should step forward and make the change, I'm open to ideas and suggestions!

Seriously though y'all, I NEED your input. Help me!!!


Until next time...
With love and God bless,


  1. If people will forget you if you change your blog name then I just committed blogger suicide!! HAHA. I say go for it. If you feel stuck, rebrand. I wish I were more help with blog names, but I think I just spent every single last creative fiber trying to come up with mine and my tagline. Bahaha. No but seriously, I am sure you can come up with something great! Think about what makes you happy and how you would like to chronicle it and how you want your audience to see you. Can't wait to see what you do!

  2. Go for it...I like your title now, but if you want to change, go for it. :)

    just remember though, you're not talking babies yet, but you will...

    def pick a title that covers your "scattered brain-ness" (I'm the same way!) and will also still encompass the gouglers. make sense?

    or you can just make a fun title and run with it! I'm just saying don't pick one thing like "art with Amy" because you're blog is about a lot of things. :)

  3. Especially if you are going to keep your domain name, I dont think it matters if you change your blog name. I know I just read everything off my reader, so your followers should stay put! Good luck figuring out a new title :)

  4. I feel like we are all going through identiy crisis' I am going to be changing my name too!

    My advice is to ask people who dont blog.. friends and such they wont have an opinion that is clouded by everything they have seen online!

    Cant wait to see what you come up with!

  5. Well, you know I just changed mine! It took me forever to come up with a new one and it finally hit me while driving home last week. I like the alliteration too! I think what you have is great! But I totally understand the need for change. Do you have any ideas you are toying with for a name?

  6. I love your blog name! I know what you mean about you wanting it to reflect what your blog is about though. I'm excited to see what you come up with!

  7. My blog started as "Get ’er Done” in a futile attempt to help me get organized. Within a few months I knew that I wanted to change direction, so I switched the name to “Random Snippets & Apertures,” which better reflected my emphasis on writing and photography. Personally, I think your blog is so much more than just a glimpse into your family life. If you want the name to reflect that, then go for it! You will NOT be forgotten!


I love hearing from you, so leave a little note :)
