Well, folks, I’m beginning to feel like it’s time to really take this blog seriously. Simple Elegance has mainly been a fun hobby for me, but I want it to be more polished and professional. I’m starting to work on the beginnings of a book, and I want this blog to become a platform which that book might be launched off of. I’m also thinking about become a professional shopper/personal stylist on the side, once I find out what training is necessary. Also, I’d really like to have a url that doesn’t still bear the name of what was originally a crafting blog. I’d like to have a site that looks good on business cards, that people might want to advertise on.
So, I’m ready for a name change (again). While I like Simple Elegance, having a double “e” looks sloppy in urls. Plus, SimpleElegance.com is unavailable, and when I google the name, lots of wedding and interior decorating companies come up, which could be confusing for someone who doesn’t realize that my blog is a style blog and not a wedding blog.
Plus, I want something more original. Something that still reflects my personal philosophy about style, and something that doesn’t sound like a million other generic blog names.
I am very open to suggestions, because right now I haven’t come up with much. But the one possibility I do have I like a lot. Here’s a few possibilities I’ve come up with.
Smiles Go With Everything. This definitely reflects one aspect of my view of style and life. Nothing bugs me more that sullen faced models wearing gorgeous outfits. Or women who are absolutely beautiful yet can’t stand the site of themselves and are always depressed and frowning. Smiles instantly make you look better and more beautiful. Frowns can make even the best outfits look awful. And really, I think it’s best to always have a positive outlook on life. It’s just too short to let all the bad stuff get you down.
Here’s some variations on that idea:
Smiles Are in Style
Smiles Are Chic
Pearls and a smile (because I love to wear classic pieces like pearls) (Never mind, it’s already taken)
Both of those versions have fewer characters, which is often beneficial.
So that’s my only really good idea so far. What do you think of these for a new blog name? Any other ideas? Once I buy the domain name, I’ll be sure to make a post before I switch the blog over.
