This past few weeks I’ve been thinking about changing my blog name and URL from The Dirty Diaries http://thedirtydiaries.wordpress.com 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!
