Brief Blog Update

Another name change?

Yes. When I changed my blog template a few months ago, I chose a new name as well, On the Path to Publication. What I didn't know was that one of my writer pals, Jody Hedlund, has an established blog called On the Path, where she publishes great posts.

I never meant to snitch Jody's blog name and planned to switch mine as soon as I thought of another. I was inspired on my walk today. I've used Joy on the Journey as my complimentary close on email and note cards for many months. A Google search revealed no other romance writers using it, so I'm adopting it.

Hey, this never showed up on my dashboard. Hmmm, things are squirrely around the blogosphere.

Great name though! It's really good and I think it's representative of your style. :-)

Jessica said...

Oh this is too funny! So I rechecked my dashboard, looked under your name instead of in the blog updates, and it said you posted one second ago. LOL!

Jessica, I think the confusion is my fault and that the name change may have confuzzled the crawelers that are supposed to catch my updates. I posted this late Friday afternoon, but I didnt' get my email notification until the wee hours of Saturday morning.

Glad you found my blog again and that you like the new name. I've tried not to be a copycat kinda gal, so I feel better now that I'm not using Jody's blog title.

Keli,
I really like the JOY part as it's a good reminder even if our circumstances seem otherwise!

Keli Gwyn said...

Laura, there are definitely days on my writing journey when I'm not feeling the joy and need the reminder.

One of my biggest joys is getting to know wonderful people like YOU. I'm looking forward to your upcoming interview at Romance Writers on the Journey so others can have the opportunity to get to know more about you, as I've been blessed to do.

Why are you changing your name I can't keep up with you then, I read so many blogs and interviews that I meet myself coming and going some times, LOL

Sorry about the confusion, Edna, but I felt like a copycat using a blog name so similar to my writer friend, Jody Hedlund. Now you won't risk getting the two of us mixed up.

Anne Barton said...

Definitely fitting! Don't feel bad about changing the name. At least you update your blog(s). Which is more than I can say for myself. ;)

Keli Gwyn said...

Thanks, Anne. I'm happy with the name. It ties in with my other blog, Romance Writers on the Journey, as well as with my Web site. I only wish I were a tech whiz and could put the great picture of the trunks from my Web site here too. Maybe one day I'll attempt that, a day when I'm feeling exceptionally brave. :)

I love the new name! Joy oozes from your fingertips and it is an appropriate name for you! :)

Sherrinda, I like the thought of joy oozing from my fingertips. Thanks! To have someone say that shows me the Lord's at work because I can be a glass-is-half-empty gal at times.
