I've been casually thinking about changing the name of my blog for a while. Not for any particular purpose - it just doesn't feel like it fits as well as it used to. Sure, I'm still cheap. That's who I am. And who doesn't like profanity? (Well, a lot of people, I suppose.) I'm not sure this label completely fits what I'm writing about these days or they way I'm writing about it.
It's not that it was ever inauthentic, but you may have noticed a decrease in the gratuitous use of the word "fuck." Or even the judicial use of the word "fuck." The swearing wasn't forced, but it was a writing persona, obviously. It was a lot of fun at the beginning, and now I'm getting a bit bored with it. Still, sometimes you just fucking need to say fuck to make your fucking point, right? (Okay, breathe.)
In addition, the focus of most of my posts when I started out used to be "buy this shit" or "don't buy this shit." Pretty straightforward. It's a little different now. I am still interested in avoiding needless spending, and not buying expensive things when there are equally useful inexpensive options, and beauty marketing, and the value - as far as that can be defined - of various products, but, like . . . you can buy whatever you want. I'm not going to tell you what to do. I suppose it's become a little more reflective and a little less prescriptive. It's also almost exclusively focused on beauty stuff now, which it wasn't necessarily at the outset.
So where does that leave me? Reasonable as Heck?
I don't have any better blog titles in mind, so for the time being CAF will remain. (Suggestions anyone?) I suppose I once had a "brand," but since I am less interested in having one now, that makes "rebranding" more difficult. Also, if I change the title, then do I have to change everything else? The URL? All my social media accounts? I'm getting bored and tired just thinking about it.
At least I can say that I am not getting bored with blogging in general. It's still fun, and it's still evolving, but what do you do when the contents don't feel like they fit the box you originally put them in?
