Unconventional Change

It’s that time of the week again…raw, unedited writing for 5 minutes flat. I was really looking forward to it this week cause there is so much on my mind and I don’t know where to start. So here we go…

The word is: Change

Funny how that happens. Just when you are thinking about something, chewing on an idea…something pops up out of the blue that relates to it.

Some call that a coincidence. I used to call it that. I don’t really anymore.

Hmmm, but change.

Just this week I was thinking about changing my blog up a bit. I know, I’ve only been at this address for a month or so, but I’m not sure it totally fits. I’m learning, stretching, growing. (Or maybe it’s just my ADD acting up again and I’m ready for something new…ha!)

But seriously, I would love to have your thoughts on this as well. I love the word Unconventional! Love it!

But sometimes I feel stuck in a box with the whole Doctor’s Wife thing. I really do want to blog about my medical life, but sometimes I feel like that needs its own internet home. I don’t want to bore everyone else with the woes of medical training. But I know there is such a need for encouragement within that community and that has been a passion of mine for over 10 years!

But what would that leave here? i still want to connect with others on this space. What would I change it to? Amber: Unconventional? The Unconventional Amber?

I feel stuck. Any suggestions?

    I like the name. It makes me wonder what I might be reading about – it could be anything. It’s got intrigue and piques my curiosity.

    I’m with you that I feel like I would change my blog name if I could–I love the name, I would just go with something more basic so it could change more easily to fit what I’m blogging about. However, I think you have a good title–the word “unconventional” kid of gives you a pass to write about whatever… :)

    Hi Amber,

    I know what you mean about wanting to change up the blog. Mine is an ever work-in-progress. I think your blog name is great, though. It’s catchy and gives a pretty solid glimpse of who you are in just moments. It doesn’t seem to me like it’s pigeon-holing you, I wouldn’t change a thing.

  7. This is my first time to your blog and I am popping over from FMF. And to be honest with you, I came over because of the name under your photo {The Unconventional Doctor’s Wife}. I thought, “This girl sounds cool and I want to check her out.” I even instinctively clicked “like” on your FB page thingy BEFORE I even read your post…and I don’t usually do that. So from one new reader…I think whatever you are doing…it is great!

    Nice to “meet” you and I look forward to getting to know you better!

      And nice to meet you too!

    I’m not sure what I would suggest for a URL. I have changed blogs a couple of times, but now I think I’m satisfied with it. Best wishes for whatever you decide. (Maybe just a new design would satisfy you?)

  13. Girl, I love your blog name! It’s all unconventional — that’s why I LOVE IT!!! I’ve wanted to change Positively Alene a million times, but others talk me out of it. Change — we talk about it, then we talk ourselves out of it. KraZy.

    I too love the “unconventional” part of your blog title. Even if you change and keep the dr. part out, you can still be an encourager in that community. Have a fantastic Friday! Blessings!

    Hm. I think you have a lovely blog name, but I also know what it’s like to want to change it up. You’re right… “unconventional” is my favorite part of your title.
