Behind the Blog Name: Anchored in the South


I have been having some major technical issues with my blog lately! Thus my lack of posts earlier this week. It was absolutely terrifying, I definitely learned my lesson in backing up my blog frequently! I am so grateful everything is back, and I didn't lose anything! I have been missing blogging, and I can't wait to share some exciting posts with y'all this week.

This post has been in my draft section for quite some time. I had all the words in my head but had trouble transferring it to 'paper'. Let's see how this goes!

If you've been following me for a while now, you know that back in November I rebranded my blog. I changed my blog name & redesigned my blog theme. I had been using a pre-made blogger template that I wasn't too fond of, and I wasn't in love with or inspired by my past blog name.


The one thing that I love about my blog is that it includes two things that I love, one more obvious than the other. 

Even though I was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, I always identified with the South. With my love of country music, bbq, and cowboy boots I will always be a southern girl at heart. One of my other loves, is the east coast. Thus the 'Anchored' part of my blog name.

Well...I guess it wasn't that much of a struggle to write that! Also I am working on creating a 'Rebranding Checklist' that is exclusive to my email subscribers. Since I wasn't planning on having to fix up my blog this week, it will hopefully be sent out later this week or early next week. So make sure you're subscribed!

  1. I love hearing how people come up with their blog names - choosing a name is so personal so it's always endearing when people share their story! I've always loved the name of your blog, and reading how you came up with it makes so much sense!

  6. Eeeek, scary times, girlfriend! I am constantly worried about losing posts/something going wrong with my theme/etc. Backing up the blog is a must! Hope things are back to normal now. :)
