Do you ever think about starting a blog? If you've thought about it, you've likely thought about the perfect name for your website–that name that exactly describes your content, what you dream about publishing. That blog name, the “dotcom” likely encompasses the overall theme of your site, the articles you want to write about, the audience you hope to reach.
I started this site, http://www.babygoodbuys.com, in the fall of 2008. I can't even remember what I wanted to originally name the site, but it didn't take long to realize that finding an actual available domain that made sense, that fit my idea, was easier said than done! After a few hours of searches with a thesaurus in hand, I finally settled on babygoodbuys.com. Since then, I've worked hard on building a brand around that name, but I've never been satisfied with it. It's difficult to explain, I have to spell it whenever I talk about it, and I often struggle with writing about topics outside of shopping for baby items because they don't fit with the title of the site.
Now, I'm thrilled, nervous, but definitely thrilled to announce that I just bought the domain babysavers.com! I've been dreaming about a site name like this literally for years, and I can't wait to put it to use! I have a vision that involves something like Helping parents save time and money, and I can't wait to incorporate more lifestyle, parenting and family content into all the baby deals I'm used to writing about!
Rebranding a site and everything that goes into the rebranding process (namely social media accounts) is going to take time, but I'm ready to get started on it! I have big plans to redesign the site to reflect the name and vision, so if you know a reputable and talented designer feel free to have them email me at babygoodbuys (at) gmail.com. Plus, I'm hoping to seamlessly migrate all my social media accounts from the babygoodbuys name to the babysavers ID. I have research to do on those processes, but rest assured that following me on Twitter and Facebook now will only help you stay on top of the changes as they happen.
Thanks for all your support of babygoodbuys.com over the years. Nothing will be changing overnight (I can't imagine doing something like changing my site name and domain right before the holiday shopping season!), but you'll definitely know when the new website is here!
