ch-ch-ch-CHANGES....

10.24.2011

Soooooo...What do you think???? :)

Let me explain. Where did "The Nelson Diaries" go? I know, I know...it was extremely hard for me to let go of that original title. However, this one feels more ME and I've been wanting to change the name of my blog forever now.

So why, "So Shay"...At first I was really scared of changing the name. Mostly because let's face it, it's pretty corny. However, I hear this phrase ALL.THE.TIME. If a friend calls me or texts me a picture of a dress, or something that reminds them of me, they will go, "This is So Shay!" Anytime a person sees anything that I'd do, anything I'd wear, or anything I'd say, they always say, "That is so YOU. It's So Shay!"

Corny. I know. However, I think I like it. Especially for this little blog of mine.

Don't worry though, Drew Drew Hot Pants is still a huge part of this blog, and that will def. stay the same. He wants me to tell you guys that he wasn't 100% sold on the blog name change because he felt that he'd be left out, but I assured him, and I assure you he will still be a HUGE part of it. :) :) :)

So, your thoughts? Do you hate it? I almost cringe at asking you this.

And if you need a blog makeover (something I've really really needed), I highly suggest Christa. She's patient, creative, and QUICK. Like, super quick! You can visit her HERE.

  33. I'm "so lame" for not reading this sooner. (Actually, I'm so busy...but this is about you, not me. Ha!)

    I think you could call your blog Fried Purple Frogs and people would still love it.

    Doesn't quite have the same ring to it, though. ;)

    So, Shay...

    I like it.

  34. Ok....I am so freakin late to the party. First and foremost....your blog is GORGEOUS. I absolutely love it and I love the name change. I too have been pondering the name change myself over in my neck of the woods.

    I have been SO BEHIND on blogging---I clicked on your blog and I was like...what the heck?! But in a good way! Pleasantly surprised! Your blog was adorbs before, but I love this!!!!!!!!

    Sorry I have been so MIA!
