I didn't do it, obviously.

Three reasons.

#1
If I changed my blog name, oldblackcatboo would just be out there.
Floating around for the taking.
Someone else could use it for whatever they wanted.

and then

#2
As I researched more artists and their websites, I found that while they might have used their names on the website,
their blogs many times had a different name or their studio.
Hmmm....
Old Black Cat Boo Studio?
I like that!

and finally
#3
I saw some artwork the other day that I liked and then I couldn't remember the artist's name except for his first name. Then I remembered one of the words from his Etsy shop and I typed it in and found it!
so that made me THINK and I typed in:
black cat cynthia

ok, my blog didn't pop up but when I typed in

old black cat cynthia
it went right to my blog!

and then I typed -
black cat cynthia myers
and BAM back to my blog!

OK, I'm keeping oldblackcatboo for the name of my blog.
and I'll use my name when I finally set up a website.

Thank you for your patience.
XOXO

Hey, if they can brand "monster.com" into a job website, you can turn old black cat boo into the site you want.

I love Old Black Cat Boo, but you know I love black cats. I'm glad you're keeping it. I have thought about changing mine, too, but I think I'll just add my name to the header. Much easier - hahaha! xoxo

Even with your name stays the same (good idea for what you've built so far), it's still all very new! How much work that must have taken to do! I'm impressed and love looking at your art, front and center. Sounds like you're on a roll, and satisfied. Nice.

Thank you for your kind words...the safety of others is always first and the ice is much worse than snow most of the times. Ice and sleet are moving in here tonight so we will take the morning one hour at a time. Be safe dear friend and you were correct..I did have a small fluff animal when I was a little girl. Alden has found a great home in my heart. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Love the new header! I think keeping the name is fine...no reason to start all over again.
