Hello Friends! I’m super excited to share with you something big and exciting that I kind of just plunged into on the weekend. After being unhappy with my name ( The Rugged Home Blog ) for almost a year, I finally decided to brainstorm and figure out a new name for my busy & growing blog.
See, I had clients, new clients and random people emailing me on my blog, Instagram account, Facebook, email asking for order updates etc. Lets be clear here, my blog has literally Zero ties to my husbands business. This blog is purely personal, I write about very deep personal things and it in no way shape or form reflects my husband or his company. So continuing to get request after request about people assuming that it had ties to our business, I finally decided to change my blog name.
Now, it had to be a name that I will stick with forever, because I highly doubt y’all would follow me through yet another blog name change. After some debating with friends I picked “White Picket Farmhouse” to me this symbolizes a dream we have for our family one day. To have a sweet little home that is all ours on a farm.
Like the new logo I whipped up? Some were not a fan of the fence I chose.. but this fence symbolizes our life. Very imperfect, very honest, rugged, crazy and not the prettiest at times. See, I will never pretend like I’m perfect or that I have it all together. Ever. I post the good, the bad and the ugly. Yes we do have perfect moments, but they feel rare between all the craziness. I do my best to wear my heart on my sleeve and share our struggles with you so you know that there is someone out there in the world who has your back and if you reach out to me, I will always here there. You know?
Since my life has changed pretty thoroughly in the last 18 months since starting this blog, I really wanted to change my name and graphics. I wanted something more me.
If you’ve been a follower for a while you will know that is started off as a Home Decor and DIY Blog.. then last May I bought a Premium Starter Kit through Young Living and have been obsessed with oils so much that I’ve not be able to shutup about it, I have even dedicated a page on my website for my “story”. I also throw in a few random lifestyle blogs, so I want this to be a place where everyone will be able to come and find something that applies to them.
I hope you are as excited as I am about this new change. As for all my social media, I’ve changed the names on them as well. If wanting to hope on those pages, there is a link in the right sidebar for each.
What do you think of my new name? Like it? Hate it?
I’m so grateful for all of your continued support over the last 18 months. What started as nothing turned into this amazing place that so many like to come monthly.. I’ve been averaging between 130 – 150,000 page views a month. SO THANK YOU!
