The Parachute Diaries


Soooo, I have been thinking about changing my blog name for a while now! I love my original title, it was after all, where this whole blog started, but I feel that I have outgrown it.

So, The Parachute Diaries...

I have loved the idea of my life and myself being brought down to earth, every so often by parachute. I have visualized this many times during my most frantic weeks. During days that I feel like I am falling too fast, without a safety net, not know how I will ever be able to land on my feet. But if I can just see myself being brought down slowly, parachuted through my messes, safely grounded, it all seems to pass by a little more smoothly.  So here I am. Same blog. Same me. New name. We all need a little make over once and a while.

My question to all of you little lovlies is, have you ever changed your blog name? How has it effected your blog? And more than just the name, have you changed the entire web address? I plan to after a few days, I just wanted to see if any one ran into any problems while doing so. Did you lose any readership? Are there any tips you might have? Any problems you have encountered? Id love any feedback! Any thoughts on the new name? Or suggestions at all? Thanks!


  1. I thought about doing mine and really kinda want too but unsure. Let me know how it works. I like the name :)

  2. Hi Lacey. I changed my blog address (kept the same name) to something close to my actual name at the start of the year and lost a few readers. I don't really mind, most found me again anyways.. I'm thinking of actually changing my blog name to create an identity - as my original one was just 'whatever'... p.s love the sound of your blog.

  3. Hi there... Well, I used to post more in ETCétera ( but when I started to paint I've decided I needed a new blog, a place where I can post my latest watercolors ( But I also have a site, and I love its design, fresh, white and simple. As I've said before, I love to write too, and I like reading your posts. Did you see my watercolors?

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
