Hi everyone!!! So, today I was randomly googling my blog name. (Silly, I know, but I do it every once in a while) As I scrolled down the page through many of links to my blog posts, I saw a Book Loving Mom that wasn't me. *Gasp* Of course I had to click on it. The shock that someone stole my blog name made me mad, sad, and frustrated. That blog is just over a month old! I've been using this blog name for almost 3 YEARS!! They have no contact button, so I couldn't nicely email them about it. (I'm not rude enough to actually post on their blog that they are a name stealer) But really, a quick google search would have shown them that someone already was using that blog name.
I went through hours of anger and sadness. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what to think. How can people really not google something before setting up something like a blog? I mean, if you are setting up a blog, you should probably know how to use google!! I took to twitter and talked to a few fellow bloggers. They helped me to not feel so frustrated, and helped me to come to a decision about my blog.
First, I will go into some of the little things about it. My URL is not matching my blog name and instead it's booklovingme.com, (when I purchased my URL the one matching my name wasn't available, but I came across no other blogs with the name) so this person easily scooped up the mom.com URL. So what can I do? I know I shouldn't have to be the one to change my blog name that I have had for years, but I though about it, and is it worth the headache to deal with this blog name stealing person. (I know I sound mean, but it's upsetting even though I don't think the person did it on purpose.)
So, after thinking about it, and ranting quite a bit, I have decided I will be changing my blog name to Book Loving Me. It will match my URL, and I think that my followers will still know it's me. It's going to be the same website you have been using, just a different blog name. I hope that if anyone goes to the other Book Loving Mom blog, they won't be confused since that is totally not me. After almost 3 years, my name is changing. It's sad, but I'm okay with it and even really like the name. The change will not be official until after I get a new banner, and grab button. I suppose I will probably need a new meme banner for StS too, but that isn't super important right at the moment. Once it is official. I will have a post about it with my new banner and button to grab with the new name. I just wanted to let everyone know in advance the name is changing and that the other Book Loving Mom is not me. I will be Book Loving Me soon!!
Love you all!!!
