There’s been a whole lot of moving and shaking going on over here in blog land lately! Last week, not only did I get a blog makeover, I decided to change my blog name as well. That’s right, you read that correctly. I decided to retire Serendipity and go by my real name, Athena. What gives?
Well, as you may have been following, I have changed a lot over the years and my blog has too. Once focused on getting myself on track with my finances and keeping myself accountable, it’s grown into something more. It’s grown into a place where I can share what goes on in my life, no matter big or small, and it’s been a place where I can receive continuous support no matter what life throws at me. And for some reason, I just see Serendipity as the old me, the old me who has come so far and worked so hard for a change. Now that I finally have that, I decided to cut the strings and let go.
Serendipity helped me get where I am today and for that I’ll always be grateful for my online pseudo name. Perhaps I’ll even miss it at times where I can’t blog as anonymously anymore. But, I’m ready to move on and I’m ready to see what else my new blogging adventure has in store.
Don’t worry, I’m going to still blog about personal finance. That is still such a big part of my life and is definitely not going anywhere. I’ll still share my budget, saving challenges, tips and goals. But I’ll also be blogging about resources you can use, book reviews, songs, adventures in my new chapter in life and anything you’d like to hear and read about. I’ll just do it in a more Athena style.
Is it scary to be a little less anonymous and use my real name now? You bet! Am I excited? Tremendously. And I hope you are too!
I would like to ask if you currently have me in your blog roll, to please update my new name and url = accordingtoathena.com . If you would like to exchange blog links, please leave a comment below so I can get started and spread the blog love! And if you can, please take a minute to stop by the blog and check out the cool new design! Andrea from Nuts and Bolts Media designed the beautiful layout and header. I also use her for all of my blogging services such as consultation and hosting. She’s amazing, easy to work with and comes up with the funniest pictures on Twitter.
Let’s get this party started!
