If you accessed my blog or communicated with me via social media over the weekend, I’m sure you noticed the change in blog name and social media handles. A few of you even inquired as to how the change came about.
Well, there comes a time in life where you begin to feel as if you’ve outgrown certain things and that’s exactly how I’d been feeling about my internet presence for the past few months. People have been calling me Ms. Teezy for as long as I can remember as a shortened version of my name. Even though the name stuck, I’ve never felt it was an accurate reflection of who I am. As I am quickly approaching my 30s and working harder than ever to advance my writing career, I wanted something a little more professional and definitive of me.
Since I’m better at coming up with ideas for others than myself, it took me quite some time to decide on a name I really like, not to mention my tendency to over-think things. I have been going back and forth for weeks now, but I think I’ve finally gotten it right.
‘Know Artesia’ fits perfectly because this blog and my other social media platforms are where those on the outside can truly get to know me. I’ve shared a lot of my personal thoughts here and tidbits of my life on other sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Undoubtedly, re-branding can be a scary process but it can also be very rewarding. With these changes, I am looking forward to an enhanced presence, fostering current relationships and building new partnerships.
