Changes to Pleased as Punch


I'm tired of my name.  There, I said it.

I liked it at first.  But now it just sounds "cutesy" to me.  Like, the "trying too hard to be cutesy" sort of cutesy.  I don't believe that I am trying too hard.  I don't believe that I even want to be a "cute" blog - not that there's anything wrong with cute blogs...they're fun to look at.  I'm just pretty sure that's not me, but I think my name says something different.

And honestly, lately, I feel a little stupid when I have to tell someone what the name of my blog is.

Ummmmm...that's not good!  At all!

But even more than a name change, I've been thinking of a whole shift for what I'm doing over here.  Maybe not a big shift, maybe just a little more focus perhaps.   I just used "maybe" and "perhaps" in the same sentence.  Does that just scream "decisive" or what???

I have some ideas.  But I'm interested in knowing what YOU think.  Please don't leave me with the sound of crickets chirping!  :)  I really want to know!

Why do you read my blog?  What do you come here hoping to find?  (I mean BESIDES my hilarious, witty and engrossing posts. Obviously.) What do you wish you saw more of here?  Why are you NOT reading anymore (and I realize that if you're reading this now, that question probably doesn't apply)?

You can be honest; you won't hurt my feelings!  Inquiring minds want to know.  :)


  1. Oh, I can totally relate. I really don't like the name of my blog. At all. Yuk. Oh well.

    And I feel like I'd love to give good feedback to you, but I've been pondering it all day and I have no idea what advice to give. I like reading your blog, so I guess I have the oh-so-helpful advice of writing whatever you like writing about. :)

  2. I read your blog because you really DO have a way with words. I still think you should write a book or a newspaper column so more people can enjoy how you say things in a way no one else would. You have a gift! None of this was said because you're my d-i-l either. I also read it because of how you can take the simplest things and make them into something useful and pretty. OK as you can see I DO NOT have a way with words but I hope this makes sense.

  3. I read your blog because I enjoy reading what you have written. Plus I'm always looking for new ideas. Not sure if this helps you at all.

  4. I'm just catching up on everything, but wanted to give my 2 cents since i do love reading your blog. I appreciate how normal you are. That you are really talented & creative, but you don't have that impersonal mega-blog feel. And I love that you are my blog friend & we read each other's blogs and both appreciate the other, even though we are real life friends (maybe someday!) & that you are always so encouraging to me. I love the mix of stuff you talk about too. You are awesome. AND I love the new look.... I'm a little jealous. I need an update big time, but am so overwhelmed by how seemingly difficult it is to do, that I have avoided it.
