I'm going through some changes

I'm having an identity crisis.
Well, not me...but my blog.

When I first started blogging I created a very nice blog called Mama Insomnia.
I liked the name & the way it rolled off the tongue & it suited me perfectly because,well, I had Mama Insomnia...

You know the advice every new mother gets "sleep when the baby sleeps"?? It wasn't for me. There were so many other things I needed to do. Wanted to do. Sleep wasn't one of them. So I stayed up and I cleaned, and I watched TV, and I blogged.

But then somewhere in a sleep deprived state I decided that I wanted a different blog name, so this blog was born. And this is where I have spent the last year. I'm happy with my little space here but I want more. I have now been blogging for a full year (Happy Blogday to me!) and I want to learn how to write better posts, get more from social media, and grow my connection with other bloggers & businesses.

& I'm also a little vain...so I want a face lift.

Over the next month or so I will be working with Kate over at Mommy Monologues to redesign the look of my blog and add a little flair to it!  I am also changing the name back to Mama Insomnia and eventually streamline Facebook, Twitter and Email to this handle. I will still be blogging over at this URL until I can figure out something else, so for now only my name will change.

I hope you'll stick with me through my identity crisis. I promise most of the changes are purely superficial.

I'm very eager to take my blog to the next level so if anyone has any tips/tricks for better blogging (design, content, moving to WP, etc) please leave me a comment. I'm committed to learning more about my newfound hobby and how I can become a better blogger. I appreciate the sense of community that is shared here and I can't wait to learn more!!
