What’s In a Name?

What’s In a Name?

09/01/2015 32 Comments

Keira Lennox, style and beauty blogger, Lifestyle Blogger

Can you believe this blog is five years old? Me neither.

You may notice the URL is different. If you didn’t, no worries; that means I did something right with the domain switch and the old links are transferring without a hitch. In which case, hurrah!!

After many moons of writing under A Pretty Penny, it feels like the right time for a change.

When I started the blog in 2010, the name made perfect sense; I wrote about thrifting, making my own accessories, and creating cute outfits on very limited resources. Now that I’m older and in a different place in my life, it feels a little inauthentic to tell you about my favorite $60 t-shirt or Charlotte Tilbury bronzer using that same blog identity. In some ways I’ve outgrown A Pretty Penny, and that’s okay!

Rather than throw in the towel or start a new blog — there’s so much good stuff in the archives — I changed the URL. It’s a minor adjustment in the grand scheme of things, but it feels like the start of a fresh new chapter.

To keep things simple, the new URL is just my name. Now all my social media channels are cohesive: you can find me on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Pinterest as ‘keiralennox’.

And for those of you who thought my name was Penny for all these years, it’s nice to meet you! I’m Keira. ;)

    Yours was one of the first blogs I ever started following when I started up my own. We definitely don’t stay the same..we do grow and change and maybe our blogs should too :p
    I did think Penny was your name for all this time – but it’s lovely to meet you Keira!

    Hey Kiera! Wow five years is a long time. I only started my blog coming up to 9 months, and I would really appreciate if you could give it a read at sometime. Thanks!! https://madsem13.wordpress.com/

    That`s Great!! I loved it!! Hey Keira!!

  • Elizabeth 09/01/2015 at 12:14 pm

    I like it! Your new post still showed up under A Pretty Penny on my Bloglovin’, but when I clicked the link, it says “your connection is not private” and has the https crossed out in red (using Google Chrome). It still works fine for me, but I just wanted to let you know!

    • Keira Lennox 09/02/2015 at 9:25 am

      Thank you for letting me know, Elizabeth! I’m going to reach out to Bloglovin and see if we can get the URL updated there.

  • dreamindiamonds 09/01/2015 at 12:05 pm

    Great change! I’ve been contemplating changing my name as well as I’ve outgrown my original name and im starting new ventures that wouldn’t make sense with this name! If only my real name wasn’t so common!

  • chantelledoll 09/01/2015 at 11:56 am

    And a great name it is! My little girl is a Keira too.

  • Lina 09/01/2015 at 11:38 am

    Congrats! That’s really a long time..I’ve not even gone past 5 months I guess..XD

    • madsy19 09/01/2015 at 2:13 pm

      Yeah mine is only almost 9 months :)

  • Beth Dahleen 09/01/2015 at 11:15 am

    Very cute post! A Pretty Penny is a cute and catchy name, but Keira Lennox sounds sophisticated now that you are 5 years old–wait that doesn’t sound right! in blog years that is!

  • Mom, Miles, and Mishaps 09/01/2015 at 11:11 am

    Still love the blog…regardless of the name change! ❤️

    • july7k 09/08/2015 at 9:42 pm

      Congrats on 5 years! I am new to blogging and hope to get to where you are one day…cheers to the next 5: ).
