Two months ago, I posted a survey of potential new names for my blog. I adore the current name, especially the story behind it, but the time’s right to make a new home for this space. For a variety of reasons, I’ve decided a new name will better suit the future I envision for this dialogue and community.
Thanks to all of you who voted! You helped me sort out this decision, which turned out to be kind of a big deal in my world. I love that one of you responded with this comment: “Are you sure you’ll be able to go through with it?” How very astute of you! Indeed, letting go hasn’t been easy. Whoever you are, I can totally relate to your blogger friend who contemplated a new name, but ultimately dropped the idea.
So, Why the Change?
I started this blog to record craft projects I’d been working on. Every handmade item has a story, and I quickly realized I adored telling these stories. Before long I discovered I loved the writing as much as the making. Both helped me find my voice. Over time, blogging made me braver, and the feeling spilled into other parts of my life. Now I want to help you capture the freedom and joy that can come from finding your voice, too.
Let Your Voice Resound
As such, I’m happy to announce my new name: Resounding You. I hope you’ll find it as memorable and energizing as I do. There, I’ll provide tools and inspiration for finding our voices. I’ll still write about the same topics–crafting, self care, entrepreneurship, and more–just under a new lens. (Truth be told: Blue Car Painted Green has proven tricky for people to remember.) Here’s a sneak peek at the new look:
How To Keep Following Along: The Nitty Gritty
Within the coming weeks, my new site’ll go live! At that time, I’ll do one final post here, with a link to Resounding You. On your first visit please subscribe, if you’re so moved. Over time we’ve built a relationship, and I’m more than a little attached to our conversations. Let’s keep them going!
I’ll no longer update Blue Car Painted Green, but anyone who comes here will automatically be rerouted to the new site. All my content will move there, where it’ll discover a new life.
