Oh Snap! First "official" post under my new blog name!

Well, I hope you are not too confused.  You are probably thinking "When did I start following 'Life with Giggles' or 'who the heck is Kenya and where is Mrs. Newlywed Giggles?!?!'"

Well, you are not wrong. You are indeed in the correct place.
Newlywed Giggles = Life with Giggles
Mrs. Newlywed Giggles = Kenya (my real first name)

For months I contemplated about changing my name, but felt like my branding was more important. Well, I quickly found out that if I want to grow within my blog, I need to update my blog name since it represents only a snippet of time in my life. And that is how this new blog name came to light.

I sat down one day and wrote down TONS of new names.  I would say them out loud, test them out with hubs and friends.  Then today, I was just like "do it Kenya... just do it."  So I did all while freaking out in the background. I changed my blog name along with getting my own domain (fancy huh?), changed my buttons, changed my signature, changed ALL of my ads that were running on passionfruit, changed twitter name, google +, etc.

And here we are... Kenya the author of Life with Giggles.

I am so excited for this change.  I hope you guys enjoy it too.
A huge thank you to Nikki and Ms. Networking for their encouragement and support while I tried a gazillion blog names with them.

In the end, the hubs was right. He knew best (THIS KILLS ME TO SAY, KILLS ME!!!).  The hubs knew all along that the perfect name was "Life with Giggles".  He is awesome. I love you babe and thank you for not thinking I'm  a freaking maniac when I asked about a trillion times what you though of said blog name.

A thank you also goes out to you all, my faithful followers.  Thanks for being awesome and for embracing this new chapter in my blogs life!

Love the new title.

I've been considering changing my blog name because it's turned into something other than what I originally started it to be. I need to find my blogging purpose again and maybe I'll switch names.

It's important to have a name that fits you, and I'm glad you were able to find one that does! :)
