… or why I decided to change my blog name
glad that you stopped by again. Hope you are all doing fine and having a wonderful week.
Probably you are wondering where have I disappeared in the last few months and why I have been pretty “quiet” on the blogosphere… And most importanly: What has happened to Keep It Stylish and Sexy (for those of you who don’t know that was my old blog). Like I promised in my previous post here comes the whole story about my decision to make this big (for me) step. I will try to keep this post a bit more personal so you can understand what drove me to this.
When I started my blog back in 2011 I have never even thought that it will become such a big part of not only my everyday life, but also the person I am nowadays (more about that in another post) . I am still very grateful to my cousin who gave me this great idea to start an online style diary and inspired me to create something on my own. Back at that time I was searching for a blog name that represented my clothing style in the best possible way. So I came across Keep It Stylish and Sexy (K.I.S.S.) I guess I still love this name, I just feeel that I cannot identify myself with it anymore.
I have to admit that I had so many up and downs in the last few years and I went through different life stages. As a result my sense of style kept changing (for better or for worse) as well as my blogging concept and viewpoint. I actually often had doubts, felt a bit lost and unsecure and I completely lost the purpose of blogging. Here I said it! (By the way, I am pretty sure that many other bloggers feel also the same from time to time).
Like you know I have always believed that quality is better than quantity. Therefore, I had to stay true to myself. So I took a pause. A pretty long one.
It turned out that was exactly what I needed. During my “little blogging holiday” I started missing my blog and I suddenly felt the need to inspire and to be inspired again. I knew I had to use my potential and show myself that quitting was not the solution. To do that I had to come up with a new blog name that represented the new start and the new, more mature me. So I thought of Cashmere Stories – short, memorable and somehow… special.
Like you know, cashmere is one of the finest, most valuable fabrics in the world known for its softness, symbolizing luxury and quality. Therefore, I thought this is the perfect name since it can be associated with uniqueness and not only in regard to our style, but more importantly to our personality. I guess that is the message I want to give with my blog name.
So that was everything I needed to tell you for now. If you are curious to find more, read my previous post.
I guess what I wanted to say with this story is that it is never too late to make a change (even after 5 years of blogging or doing someting else). And to all bloggers out there who are having the same struggles like me: don’t give up! Just remember that little pauses keep your mind awake and make more space for inspiration and fresh ideas.
Having that said I hope you like my new outfit.
Happy to hear your thoughts 🙂
