I joined the Slice of Life Challenge the first time in March 2012. I had heard of blogging ( maybe I first noticed it in the book and movie Julie and Julia) and I started reading blogs on Education Week (starting with The Book Whisperer, by Donalyn Miller who is now contributing at the Nerdy Book Club blog) and Scholastic. I never had any idea that I would start writing on a blog myself until I happened to connect with TwoWritingTeachers and decided to try the March challenge. I liked it so much I kept on writing every Tuesday.
Last March my daughter had just been accepted at Indiana State University. Looking forward to my daughter’s high school graduation and her moving on to college were the biggest things going on in my life. So as I thought of a name for my blog, I came up with newtreemom. (ISU is the home of the Sycamores- ISU moms are treemoms. )
As my daughter winds up her freshman year and I’m adjusting to this new stage of life, I’ve been thinking about whether it is time for a new name. I am kind of attached to newtreemom. I like the way it looks and sounds. And I do like trees, too. But does the name represent my blog/me well? Should I plant a new tree in my yard so I would really be a newtreemom? Should I adopt a freshman getting ready to start at ISU so I will be a newtreemom again? Should I become plain old treemom? Just a few thoughts that have been rattling around my brain…
What do you think?
