As of today, this blog is now SnapHappy Foodie.
Last week, the New Blog Name Bug bit me big time. I thought about it and discussed it ad nauseam with my husband and my younger sister. They knew more about what a URL change entailed, way better than I did. All I knew and wanted was a new name.
I know, I know, as far as the intarwebz is concerned, a new URL = new blog. Meaning, followers need to find and follow this blog again. The site’s statistics will get affected. Moving the site from one domain to another, even if hosted by the same server, requires WORK (yeah, upper case). Yada, yada, yada. But I was unstoppable.
They wanted to make sure that the migration would be seamless. No broken links, no missing images. A place for everything and everything in its place. Among the three of us, there was much work to be done.
I wracked my brain for names, checked my dictionary and thesaurus looking for food-related words, took notes, made a list, and crossed out words. Took me two days yet nothing appealed to me.
Turns out I didn’t have to look far for the new name. My Instagram username is now this blog’s new name. Might as well use the same thing since my IG profile is chock-full of food pics.
It felt exactly right. Right on target. It was me, the one who loves to eat and take pictures.
I’m still tweaking and polishing this newly-named blog. I made the blog header and the logo. Created or updated social media profiles. Changed the watermarks.
In short: same blog, new name.
