The Blog-tember Challenge: Day 7


Happy Labor Day, y'all!  I am so happy to have a day off from school :)  I've been participating in the Blog-tember Challenge as much as I can and it's been fun.  Today's question is...

Day 8: Tell us about your blog name.  Where did it come from?

I started blogging in October of 2014.  I had been reading blogs since college and enjoyed keeping up with some of the same blogs for years.  I know that sounds weird, but it's like you really get to know the bloggers if you've read their blog for a few years.

Anyway, I had just gotten married and felt like it was time for me to try out blogging. I looked at lots of blogs to check out their names, and I even made notes in my phone of different names I had thought of.  I ended up going with Meet the Shaneyfelts because I was still obsessed with thinking about our wedding, and it was our hashtag.  
#MeetTheShaneyfelts  (check it out on Instagram!)


Another reason why I chose Meet the Shaneyfelts is because when I started this blog, I planned on blogging more about our family.  Now almost a year later, I'm starting to rethink a few things about this blog and the direction I"m going in.  Am I really blogging about family or more about myself?  That's something I've got to think about.  I've been planning on updating this blog in October in honor of my one year blog-iversary (I love celebrating!), so we'll see what changes I make in October!

  6. Happy almost anniversary! I love that reading blogs made you want to start writing one yourself. And I don't think it's weird that you read blogs for years. There are people I have known from blogging and/or whose blogs I've read for years! Blog life is real life but you don't know it till you join up. ;]
