It’s been apparent to me for awhile that I need to change the name of my blog. While I think it’s cute and quirky, it’s obvious that some find the word slaughter in the title a bit off-putting. Shocking, right? Yes, I’m kidding.
When the name was suggested (by my wonderful friend Nick), it seemed apt. I had just left my job in the music industry, I was figuring out what I wanted to do with my life and I was dragging myself kicking and screaming to good health… like a lamb to the slaughter. Now, well, I’m not really kicking and screaming anymore. The blog has morphed into a place for me to talk about the challenges of living a healthy lifestyle, as well as a space where I can talk about the things that bring me happiness and balance (like books, wine and music).
When asked, I say my blog is about healthy living and balance – things that I struggle with. It’s about enjoying the things I love (some in moderation), about making time to do the things I need to do for my body and my soul. Like a Lamb to the Slaughter doesn’t really capture that at all.
On a recent road trip, I tested a few new titles out on Shawn. Once he stopped laughing, he suggested I open up the floor to suggestions from friends. So I’ve done that on Facebook and I encourage anyone here with suggestions to please leave them in the comments section. It’s time for change and I’m looking forward to a fresh start with a fresh title.
