Do you ever look at your blog and ask yourself what is the message you are trying to convey?
I’ve been doing that a lot lately, especially after merging a few of my sites recently. I have also renamed a couple of blogs, like changing Explorations, Reflections, & Meditations into An Interior Journey, or Snow Connections and Impressions into Snow Sparks.
This blog started as Accidental Moments in honor of my novel An Accidental Life. But then I created pages for each of my novels at Creative Moments, and decided that this blog needed a slight makeover.
Why not just delete this blog? Well, for one thing, it has been my regular site for The Sunday Salon posts each week. Plus, I like the idea of continuing the theme of life just “happening accidentally,” and exploring that idea a bit.
Hence my attempt to change it up without going too far afield.
Well, a few days ago I played around with different names and landed on Happenstance. Another word for accident. But I had trouble with this name. For one thing, I kept forgetting it! Yes, how is that even possible? But if I had trouble remembering it, I was pretty sure that it wouldn’t stick in the minds of readers.
Then, in my trusty thesaurus, I came up with a name I liked. Serendipity. That puts a more positive spin on the idea (and theme) of those accidental moments in life without really changing the original message.
So…what do you think? Too much? Totally crazy? Perfect? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
