Blogging about my blog... is that self-centered?

I've been in the blog world for a few months now, and I'm still confused by some things... like linking...not how, just...why?...

But that's not what is on my mind tonight. I'm wanting to change the look of my blog a bit. I love browns, but now, living in a basement, I think I need more color. I was poking around the little tabs here, learning some things I missed the first time around, and I noticed a few things.

First, the web address for my blog is different than my blog name. I don't know if I should change that, or if that would lose me to all who know me. Anyone know the answer to that?

Second, it occurs to me that my blog title is wordy. I want to change it. Will that screw things up terribly? I don't want to totally change it, just tweak it a bit. I'm just afraid I will suddenly find that I am talking to myself.

I was thinking, "Daydreams of a Cowgirl Homemaker" or, "Daydreams of an Urban Cowgirl" (or Urbanized, although I'm not sure that fits...you can take a girl out of the country, but...)

I googled urban cowgirl, and came up with a radio talk show host and a lot of fashion stuff. I'm not fashionable, nor do I talk on the radio. Wouldn't want to confuse anyone...but I kind of like that title. I googled the cowgirl homemaker title and found...me! Maybe that's a sign... Now that I look at them together, I kind of like the first one...

What do you think? Any great title ideas?

The daydreaming fits me terribly. I've always been a daydreamer. I loved those long school bus rides home and would sometimes not notice that we had arrived at my stop, being too deep in some dream. I don't think I'll ever grow out of it, and I don't want to.

Anyway, things might change a bit in the next week or so, so don't be scared. It's just me, being random and silly.


  1. You can change the title w/o losing followers, but I'm not sure about changing the name part of the address. There's a help forum with Q&A from blogspot members. It's at the top of your Dashboard page and someone there will probably have answers to your questions. As far as being wordy-it's your blog, if you want that title, I say go for it!

  2. Thanks Kelly. I saw some FAQs, but didn't look further than that.

  3. I change stuff around all the time. Had not idea how to, just poked around like you, pushed "see sample", and cancelled it if I didn't like it.

  4. Right now, you are easy to find! I know nothing about changing anything, I am real paranoid about changing anything - I just about ALWAYS screw up. But you're young, see what they let you do!
