So the last couple months I’ve been working on changing my name. A lot of people have told me “Good luck” when they found out I got married and was planning to change my name. It made me a little nervous because I thought the whole process would be difficult.
Surprisingly, that wasn’t the case.
I was able to get things changed fairly easily. Just had to bring my marriage certificate and it was done within 15-20 minutes.
Now the question is this:
Do I continue to blog under my maiden name or do I make the switch over to my married name?
I suppose in the grand scheme of things it doesn’t actually matter. A lot of women write or sing or act under their maiden names. Heck, even big A List actors have stage names (mainly because their union doesn’t allow two actors with the same name, but that’s beside the point.) Not to mention I don’t like to make big changes, especially when it comes to my blog. I’m finally gaining a following here and it’d be hard to change it up.
But I don’t like to have one thing be different while everything else is the same. Not to mention it’d be nice to have a new start.
We’ll see, I suppose. I’ll probably just keep writing under my maiden name. It couldn’t hurt…
