I'm a .com! Why it has changed!

Hey there!
I know it has been awhile, but I wanted to touch base with all of you and let you know of some new (and exciting) changes! 

First, I am now a .com!!! WOOT WOOT!! When you look for my blog you will know be redirected with a new URL www.megsboxofcrayons.com!! WOOT WOOT!! I am still looking to see if bloglovin' will function with this. If it does not, please contact me ASAP.  

With my .com-ness I have brought a new "face" to my blog! Say "hello" to Meg!




I made this Pal myself thanks to Polka Dots and Pals-Build a Pal pack on TPT! I am hoping I can get a custom one made one day! (click the image for the product)

There are 2 reasons my URL has changed:

1) I have been all over Periscope and have found that with people knowing me as Meg they have been saying the title of my blog Meg's Box of Crayons. I kinda was lovin' it , so I went for it. (also...anewboxofcrayons.com was already taken...poo!) I kind of like having my name in there though! What do you think?


2) When I began blogging I wasn't really sure where it would take me, so I created a very generic blog name never really knowing what would happen.  Recently, I have found that I was kind of "hiding" behind my blog name. I want to put myself out there! I want to take ownership of my ideas and make my blog more personal, because I LIKE PEOPLE (...sometimes..)! So, I am going to be slowly making changes to my cute little blog! 


Second, I recently got married and will be teaching in a VERY LARGE district this upcoming school year! I enjoy keeping my blog a secret simply because it was meant to be my creative outlet and a way to connect with all of you! I have also found that when people discover my blog they look at my sideways and back away slowly.  I still have not quite figured out why they react that way, but OH WELL. 
So, I will slowly be removing "my face" from my blog and things to help with that. Now, that I think of it...I may limit my selfies on Instagram as well...whoops! Who knows...maybe a new design is in the future...or not...the possibilities are endless (but the funds are not...ha!)

So, there ya have it! I am a married woman exploring my .com-ness  with a million ideas (some that may happen and some that may not...my imagination really likes to get ahead of me) for this sweet little blog of mine! 
What do you think of all my changes? Are you as excited as I am? Leave a comment and let me know!! 
Make sure to follow me to keep up with all of my crazy antics:



Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stoppin' by!




P.S.  My blog email has changed! Please contact me at megsboxofcrayons@gmail.com!

  3. Super cute! I am glad you are back. I only just discovered your blog with your wedding post. How was the wedding? Hey from the words of Taylor Swift, "shake it off" some people don't get bloggers!

  4. I am just now starting to use my face on my blog. I am always on the fence about it. I am still unsure if I want my face, my name, to be a public instagram - I am so unsure. I don't know that I want to be easily found. I don't know that when I put my handle on my pages and they go home, will parents look up my blog or instagram? Do I want them lurking in my periscopes? OY - it could be bad - or will it be good?
