Hey all. I know I don’t normally post on Saturdays, but…
I’ve got a confession. I’m not a huge fan of the name “Killer Harmony.” I chose the name almost two years ago now, but I don’t really feel like it fits the blog. I was a college junior; I had just thought I lost my entire blog. It was time for a change.
I don’t regret the name Killer Harmony. It’s a cool name. But it’s not the best. So, I think it’s time for a change. I want to share it with you before I actually make the change, so you know it’s coming.
I have a few names in mind, and I want to share them, and my thoughts, with all of you.
Change is natural
I have grown and changed a lot in the last two years. I finished college and moved back home. And I found a “big girl” day job. Over the past two years, I have come to realize that Killer Harmony is not a very professional name. It’s cute and spunky, but it’s not professional.
I care about music and blogging, and I want to take it seriously. It’s hard to take a blog with a cute, spunky name seriously.
I know the change will be hard. I’ll have to make sure everything transfers correctly, and that you can continue to find my blog and all its content.
My blog has grown. It’s still very small, but it has grown and changed just as much as I have. I need a name that reflects that change and that can work for me for years to come.
Killer Harmony is a great name for a hobby blog, but I want this to be more than that. I want to create a community of flutists and other musicians. I want to share tips and tricks and to advocate for music education…for all ages.
There’s a lot I want to do with this blog, and I need a name that can handle that.
A new name?
I have narrowed the options down to two different names.
The first one is my full name: Hannah Haefele.
It’s clear that it’s my website, and it allows me to do what I want.
It’s also hard to spell and pronounce.
The second option I’m considering is Hannah B Flute.
B is my middle initial, so it represents me and what I write about. As long as I write about flute or music.
But it’s catchier and easier to spell than my full name.
I’m really leaning toward Hannah B Flute. I love the flow of the name, and I don’t see myself drifting from writing about music anytime soon.
I have been thinking about changing the blog name for awhile now, and I really think it’s time. The name Killer Harmony just doesn’t do it for me. Though, the name will still be found on older posts, and I plan on making sure all of the current links will work with the new domain!
So be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter (@HannahHaefele)! I really want this to be a community, so I want your input!
