What's in a Name?

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

A few weeks ago, Julie talked about how she came up with her blog name "Girl in the Red Shoes". And a couple weeks ago, Amanda posted about how she came up with her blog name "Kids and Cabernet", so this week I thought it would be fun to share how I came up with mine.

For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, you might remember that my original blog name was "Now That the Birenbun is Out of the Oven" - hence the blog url. I kept it for a while but as Mason got older, it seemed less applicable. (Side note - I came up with this name because we always called Mason our "Birenbun" when I was pregnant with him since our last name is Birenbaum and he was a bun in the oven... Birenbun... so the blog was all about the Birenbun being OUT of the oven).

Back in January, I had my blog redesigned and introduced the new name of my blog. To be honest, I didn't even come up with the name. My ever so talented, marketing genius BFF, Vickie, did. On a whim, I texted her saying that I wanted to change the name of my blog and literally seconds later my new blog name was born :

Chasin' Mason

Why? Because I'm always chasin' my Mason around!

And there you have it.

How did you come up with your blog name? I'd love to know!

PS I'm still trying to figure out how to change my blog URL without having to start a whole new blog altogether/have this URL re-direct to the new URL. If anyone knows how to do this or who to contact to help me, please let me know!


  1. I love your current name! Never saw the old one but this one is perfect! When I changed my blog I didn't change my blogger URL but I bought my domain name from go daddy and redirected everything that way without having to change anything else. totally worth in to me! now all my social media matches too!

  2. I think your blog name is so cute! I switched my blog URL over fairly easily, luckily blogger transfers everything. Bloglovin' however, you have to contact with a change of URL. Let me know if you want me to help you! :)

  3. Your blog name is adorable!! Good job, Vickie :)

  4. The new name is SO fitting!!
    And, if you find out how to change the URL PLEASE let me know!

  5. I love the new name! It's hard to come up with a name before you start writing. Things change and evolve so much for time. But chasin mason is timeless! I want to change my name too but it's too much work for me right now. When I first starting thinking I was wanting to do something with Myles' name too. I thought of Myles Smiles but I write about food and decor too so I thought that would be misleading I guess. I don't know it's such a big deal. Yours is so perfect though!

  6. It definitely is fitting with just about ANY toddler! I kind of want something like...snuggle up and readin' with my love. Or like...sittin' still for two seconds is fun too! That is pretty awesome you got your name all bam boom style. I thought that was the hardest part in starting a blog.

  7. Love the name and it's perfect for you since I know all too well that as a boy Momma, we never ever stop!

  8. I always like learning more about the people behind the blog, so this post was great :) My hubby helped me with my blog name- definitely one of the hardest parts of blogging for sure!
