REASONS Why I changed my BLOG Name

by - 05 October

Ever asked yourself if your doing the right thing? Just recently I've been thinking of re-branding this blog. And tada! I made it! Yes, you're still here, at exactly the same blog, the only thing that changed for now is the name.  From Sweet Baby Doll and now Sassy Cebuanna Chic is born. It was last year when I created the title Sweet Baby Doll. I haven't bought my domain that time and stuck with blogspot but when Janine told me that I can purchase a very cheap domain at I grabbed the opportunity and signed up right away.
If you even noticed my blog domain spells wrongly because the right spelling wasn't available already. So I stuck with and been using it for one year. I didn't regret anything though, from that domain opportunities came in. I had several paid posts, advertisements, collaborations and I became part of the awesome community here in Cebu, the Cebu Blogging Community. From then, I was inspired to write even more and attend to blogger events that I used to dream of when I started blogging. So why did I changed my blog name? Here are the top five reasons why.

  • Your blog name says a lot about you and your blog. - Sweet Baby Doll was made because of my baby. Being pregnant with her and all stuff made me think of this name which is why I am changing my name. Things changed and I want to discuss further topics here on my blog that will best describes me in general. I'll still be blogging about single parenting and updates on my beautiful angel though.
  • I wanted to associate being a Cebuanna to my blog name - Being in an awesome community made me feel proud of being a Cebuano. They made a big impact on my blogging journey which is why I picked my new blog name.
  • I wanted to have the same domain as the title - Yay to this! I don't have to misspell my domain this time because they fit perfect for each other. haha! 
  • My old domain will expire this October - A chance to change it accordingly :)
  • Lastly, my passion in fashion will fit perfectly with my blog name. - Your Sassy Cebuanna Chic :) 
I'm actually torn between Sassy Cebuanna Chic and Sassy Cebuanna Mom and I've been asking my close friends which one they prefer, they told me the Chic is better. So I went with Sassy Cebuanna Chic. They said I'm a chic mommie, so it's much better. I will be changing the entire template but I'm still very busy with work and I'm searching for the best template that will fit my title. Any suggestions? And Oh, I'll stick with blogspot for now, thinking of moving to a self-hosted WordPress but I'm not really that sure as of the moment. How about you? Are you thinking of changing your blog name and domain? Well, always remember that your Blog name must describe you and what your blog is about, take it from there. :)

  1. Rica, I like the new name, if anything changes where I have to read you to Bloglovin, let me know :)

    I don't think I will be changing my name, it pretty well sums up what I am writing about, I would like my own domain sometime but I would need someone technical to move it, I wouldn't want to lose anything xox

    1. Thank you Launna :) I already added my new blog on bloglovin' , thank you for following right away :)

    1. Hello Jan! thank you :) I will try my best to keep up with this blog now and to improve myself more. thank you for being an inspiration.

  3. Congrats on the new blog name! I thought about changing my blog name after I graduate but we'll see when I get to that point. I might just start a new blog then. :) and I also thought about switching to self hosted word press but too much effort for now and I'm happy with blog spot too. There's lots of ways to customize it yourself or you can even buy blog layouts for relatively cheap so it's a good platform to have - also since blogspot is a google site i believe it helps with your site rankings, just saying ;)

    1. Thank you Andrea! :) Oh that's great! :) but your site looks pretty perfect as well.. I agree with you, I'm also happy with blogspot. Im actually looking for free layouts that will be perfect for my blog name. Thank you for the suggestion Andrea :)
