Our Appetizer.: New Name & New Direction

August 21, 2014

New Name & New Direction

Today I decided to make the craziest change to my blog. I changed my blog name from Boarding Together to My Appetizer. This is scary and crazy!! Scary because I hope people understand the direction I'm going towards with this and crazy because changing the URL on Bloglovin' is more difficult than I imagined.

Now as most of you have know, I was in a serious long-distance relationship for 4 years. 2 years we were together in Ohio and the last 2 years we were long distance. We ended up breaking up and now I'm moving on. I needed to change the name of the blog because I'm not boarding together with anyone but myself.

The original blog was supposed to be about our life together and boarding together in life. It was about everything that we went through as a long distance couple and everything that we one day wished our relationship would be. Well that's over, so the blog name needed a change.

Welcome My Appetizer. 

This name has been lingering in my head for a few months now. Why you ask? Well, good question. I figured most people wouldn't understand so here is my reasoning...

I'm in my mid 20s, I'm single for the first time since I was 19, I'm living on my own for the first time, I just started my career and I just graduated college. That's a lot of firsts. And Appetizers are the first course of a meal, my favorite part of the meal to be exact. 

I'm looking at life as a meal. We indulge in it, we savor it, we choose what we like and we customize it to our preferences. 

Does that make more sense now that I explained it? I hope so, if not ask what ever questions you have.

I'm so excited about this change! I needed this! I've been waiting for this! I'm finally making it happen. Until now I've been pretty filtered on here, nothing really expressing myself or showing my personality. That's going to change because this blog is now mine and only mine. So welcome to My Appetizer!

Have you ever made a change this drastic? 
Do you understand my thought behind this?
Are you excited for the changes?

  6. Totally get it and been there!! My last serious relationship ended when I was 26 and so having a lot of firsts is not a bad thing. I love appetizers too so this is the perfect idea to bring onto your blog's theme. You can always add a tag line like "Because it's the perfect way to start a meal and life" or something LOL.
