A Rose By Any Other Name: Alternative Blog Names

Three years ago, I started this blog on a whim and called it "Perpetually Caroline," because at least that'd always be true. I didn't want to do "Eighteen and Fabulous" because even if I could stay eighteen forever, I don't think I'd know how to fake "fabulous" for more than a week. I didn't want to do "Surviving College 101" because I was ambitious back then and had a feeling I'd graduate someday. I didn't want to do "Skirts and Makeup" because even then I knew myself enough to know that I'd give up any semblance of put together-ness sooner rather than later. You get the point. I knew very well that everything I knew, everything I liked, everything I was in January of 2012 could change because let's be real, what does one really know for certain at eighteen?

Thus, I chose "Perpetually Caroline" – and as far as I'm concerned, that's remained accurate thankfully. (OH BUT WILL IT if I change my name to Caroline Kate Middleton and insist everyone call me by my full name?)

If I were to have started this blog right this second, though? I'm thinking one of these would be perfect:

Taco_Bell_Lover_4evR*
Dear Mindy Kaling, It's Me, Caroline
I'd Rather Be Sleeping
Wine and Whining*
Whining and Dining*
Heaven Is A Place On Earth Called Hogwarts

Reasons Why My Bank Account Hates Me

How To Survive at Stanford Without Really Trying*
Caroline, Perpetually
I Have A Coldstone Heart
Things I'm Doing When I'm Not Doing My Laundry
Can You Send This To Me?*
Can You Take A Picture of Me?*
Define "Gym" Please
Donuts*
Buy Me Airplane Tickets, And I'm All Yours
Yes, Netflix, I'd Like To Continue Please
Excuse Me, What?
Too Fuzzy For A Startup*
65 Degrees, and I'm Freezing
Can I Wear Pajamas To This
Is It Naptime Yet
Running on 98% Caffeine
Is The Pizza On Its Way*

*These are the ones my roommate / best friend suggested, so now we all know how she really feels about it, thanks girl LYLAS.

  1. Yes, Netflix, I'd Like To Continue Please definitely sounds like something I would read....

  2. Now I really regret my blog name, solely because I didn't think of "Can I Wear Pajamas to This." Genius, as it's 3.23pm here and I am still in my pyjamas. Showered, yes, but back in pjs.

  3. I love these. I have been kicking around the idea of changing my blog name. Not because I don't think Everyday is a Hollyday, because I totally think that. But it would make owning a domain easier because my blog name is currently taken.

  4. Hahaha this is hilarious! Reasons why my bank account hates me is brilliant and I might steal it. Sometimes I regret naming my blog La Lingua, when I started I was planning on making it all about the Italian language so it would have made sense but now it seems quite random! Nevermind, I'm sticking xxx

  6. LOL. Loved this. I love your blog name because it will be true, forever. I changed my blog name and even now, I question whether the new name was the right choice. But can I just say, "Yes, Netflix, I'd Like To Continue Please" would really apply to my life. Or how about "How dare you judge me, Netflix. Yes, I'm still watching."

  7. hahahaha wine and whining - love it. and the 'can you send this to me?' when i look at my friends phones after they take a photo i just text it to myself. is that rude? lol. better than asking and them forgetting.

  8. I love "Whining and Dining", "Donuts", "Excuse me, What?", and "Is it naptime yet?". You've got some great choices! I think "Whining and Dining" best suits your blog though. I love love love it!

  10. You (and your roommate) are clearly hilarious. I've thought a lot about my blog name and alternate names...it's so difficult to choose something that is all encompassing for so long! I think every blogger goes through a period of "OMG IS THIS THE RIGHT NAME FOR MY BLOG?!". I personally love "65 degrees and I'm freezing" and "Running on 98% caffeine", a girl after my own heart <3

  11. This is funny and very accurate, if blog names were true to person!

  12. Haha these names are hilarious. My blog name could probably be much more accurate... but it's probably important not to sound too ridiculous. Probably...

  13. Haha I love Heaven Is A Place On Earth Called Hogwarts! I'm still not willing to accept that I'm a muggle. Hagrid is coming for me, just you wait and see! My blog name is not creative at all. It's my full name haha I had to include my middle name because my name is so common that everything without it was already taken.

  14. These are hilarious and remind me of my college days!

  15. These are tooo great! I could steal some of these and name my blog as well haha
