The Dirty Diaries’ Reboot

This past few weeks I’ve been thinking about changing my blog name and URL from The Dirty Diaries into something completely different because I just want to but I’m having second thoughts and difficulty deciding about whether or not changing it since people have known this blog for as it is by name. If I changed it, it would be the fifth time, for crying out loud, I’m changing major parts of my blog since its transformation to its current name in late December/early January, I think. And I don’t want people confusing and becoming infuriated by my ever unsatisfied mind.

The second reason I want to change its name is because there’s this Swedish feminist porn movie titled Dirty Diaries. I found it out months back when I started typing my blog on Google. My jaw just dropped in surprise, made me feel slightly uncomfortable. This is the result of not researching available URLs before building up a blog. Here’s a tiny piece of advice to those who are starting with and planning to change their blog URL, conduct a thorough (yes, thorough) research on the internet first.

So after a bloody thinking and heavy brainstorming with my own self that brought many confusions and frustrations, I have come up with a name that satisfies my senses, thus the birth of Portrait of Dust. It just seems that my objective in this blog fits perfectly with the name. However, I’m keeping the whole appearance of my blog because I’m totally loving the Gateway Theme.

From this day on and the following weeks (perhaps until a month) I will repeatedly publish this post acting as the town crier to get people notified.

Thanks for bearing with me!

  1. I always wondered how the title fit into the theme of your writing. You had to figure that the “Dirty Diaries” portrayed that type of connotation though, right?

    Perhaps that title was the right one for you then but it isn’t now. And that’s okay. We are constantly growing in our personal journey and perhaps the time is right for a change! Don’t worry! We will still all follow!


    1. Thank you! I knew it would bring that type of connotation to readers— somehow that’s part of what I want, at least beforehand, and draw the feel of irony/contradiction between my posts and blog title. But the main reason of my choosing Dirty Diaries is because I feel like sharing my purest and realest experiences and thoughts without sugarcoating any word.

      And you’re right, the title was right for me then but not anymore, now that I feel like a space person wanting to know and discover the possibility of life inside a wormhole, haha.
