Linking this post up with Kiki!
The story of where my blog name came from is actually not that interesting, but I'm going to Jedi mind trick you into forgetting I just told you that.
Four years ago, I started this blog, but it was under a different name: Breathing in the Wind. It's surprisingly hard to come up with a name for a blog, and I spent at least ten minutes brainstorming ideas.
That was a joke. Actually I spent twenty minutes on it.
The reasons I felt like Breathing in the Wind was a good fit were threefold:
1) I had recently moved to Oklahoma, which is windy.
2) I am alive, thus I breathe.
3) I often go outside and therefore breathe into the wind in order to stay alive (see #2).
Then, in fall 2012, I had to choose a team name for the annual Reese Fantasy Football League. After approximately 3.8 seconds of thought, I typed in The Lady Okie as my team name because the majority of the other teams were run by my guy cousins who live in Illinois, and I wanted to distinguish both myself as a female and also an Oklahoma dweller.
I bought the domain for theladyokieblog a week later. It was perfect! It was short and required no explanation, which were my two main goals. Since that time, I've come to realize just how truly brilliant my blog name is. It's not only a name for a blog but a name for ME. I unknowingly branded myself as THE Lady Okie. Soon I will be like those famous people who change their name, and no one remembers what their original name even was!
I'm talking to you, Vanilla Ice, aka Robert Matthew Van Winkle.
If my 400 followers in 4 years is any indication, I'm going to be famous real soon. Watch out.
Have you changed or would you ever change your blog name?
