New year, NEW NAME! Still the same girl and the same blog, just with a new and improved name!
Welcome, welcome, welcome to amberpizante.com. I am honestly so freaking excited as I sit here writing this blog post because changing my blog name is something I’ve been wanting to do for soooooooo long.
When I first started this blog (A Married Adventure), the intentions were for Ryan and I to do a joint his and hers blog (#cheesy). Almost immediately, I unintentionally took over with all things girly and pink and A Married Adventure became solely mine. It’s safe to say that I was unsure about the name but was also too lazy to change it so I stuck with it. I also thought the only readers I’d have would be Ryan, my mom and best friend, so who cared about the name.
After about a year or so of blogging, I started to not love the name anymore but really couldn’t think of a better one, so it stuck around. When I decided to redesign my blog over a year and a half ago, I really wanted to rename it at the same time, but again….I couldn’t really think of anything I loved. So I had A Married Adventure redesigned and kept the name….again.
I can’t even count how many times I’ve brought up not liking my blog name to my friends and family because it’s been that many times. Ryan and I have spent countless evenings brainstorming new names, some of which almost made the cut but ultimately didn’t. I also hoped that one day the “perfect” name would just hit me and the rest would be history, I digress.
I feared that once I found this new kitschy name that a few years would go by and I’d end up with this blog name that I didn’t love, again. So I began to think….which one of these names that I had brainstormed would I be the least likely to not get sick of in a few years?? I couldn’t really answer that. Finally, I thought, what if I just made my blog name my actual name?? I won’t get sick of that and I won’t be embarrassed and feel so cheesy when people ask me about my blog and I have to tell them it’s called “A Married Adventure”. Honestly, I was at the point that I would cringe every time I had to tell someone my blog name. Yes, it was cute but it just didn’t feel right to me but amberpizante.com feels right!
I really am so excited about this change and feel like I have this new fresh start to blogging. Something about this name change has me feeling completely reenergized to create and share content that I love with all of you. Whether you’ve been here since the start of the A Married Adventure days or are a new friend here, thank you all so much for joining and supporting me in this little blogging journey of mine.
If you’re reading this right now then you probably noticed my Instagram handle changed to @amberpizante (yay!). Twitter and Pinterest are actually still the same, are we friends there yet?! If not, we should be! Facebook is a work in progress, they currently won’t let me change my page name. If they don’t let me change it, I will probably end up deleting Facebook altogether.
Cheers to a new and exciting year, Friends!
