For today’s post, I want to explain to you why I chose my blog name. This is something I actually have put a lot of thought into over the past few months. I’ve never been creative with words so this was really challenging for me.
Where do I start… For those of you who know me, you know that I have a YouTube channel, and what some might call an “instagram blog”, with hopes of starting up an actual blog in the near future. I knew I loved social media, especially YouTube, so I decided to start my own channel almost one year ago (I can’t believe it’s already been one year). When I started that channel, I had no idea what I wanted my name to be, but I couldn’t let that stop me from starting a channel. If I waited for what I considered the perfect name, I honestly never would have posted my first video.Â So I chose a temporary name, nattyupnorth, and started posting.
The more I started uploading videos, the more I realized how much fun I was having being so active on social media. I started to obsess over posting good content, which led me to the idea of starting a new instagram account. Of course I already had an instagram, but that was dedicated to my personal life, and I wanted a fresh start, you know, with those perfect instagram blogger vibes.Â I had always wanted to start a blog, but never followed through. I told myself that if I was having fun creating content for my new instagram, I would finally design a blog.
So of course when I started my instagram blog, I was back to thinking about what I wanted to call myself. I knew I didn’t want to include my actual name into the title. The simple reason being that I loved cute blog names that had a feminine ring to it, and I could not think of a catchy one that included “Natalee”. But like I said, I have never been good with words (yet here I am writing my second blog post lol). So yes, I know I am not a good writer, I have never claimed to be. I do not have an exquisite vocabulary and my puncuation is probably a nightmare. Sometimes it’s hard for me to make a story flow, I basically have a scatter brain. All I know is that I want to create amazing content and share it with the world.
Anyways (I warned you about my scatterbrain) I played around with a few names and finally settled with Beautiful Day to Be. It literally took me 2-3 months to think of that name! But I knew I had to wait until a name felt right, and for some reason this one finally did. I love my name because you can end it with whatever you want… It’s a beautiful day to be yourself, to be loved, to be fearless, to be happy, to be a woman, to be ANYTHING YOU WANT TO BE! This name could not be more perfect for myself. I have always felt like I never fit under one category. There are so many different sides to me, I am constantly growing and learning to love myself. So although I plan to post about so many different and random things.. I hope that my name can always remind you to explore all of the crazy, beautiful, and different sides of yourself.
It’s a beautiful day to start a blog!!
