Every day is a new start.

That is my resolution for 2007. Every day is a new start, a fresh beginning, a chance to change the status quo. I, for one, am notorious for thinking that a bad day is the beginning of a bad streak. That I have to wait for the start of something major or a crash to the bottom before starting anew (hmmm wonder if anew is one word or two - I'm going with one). Anyway, that has changed with the new year. I think it will be a good thing.

So, with that being said I have been told by a few people that the name of this blog is a little bit negative. It puts the expectation out there that this is going to be an ongoing case of PMS (yes, I know sometimes it is but a girl has to vent on occasion) but that isn't really what I want this blog to be about. I mean the day I wrote for the first time I was crabby and I didn't really put much thought into the name - it was a spur of the moment decision - but now, now I'm kind of stuck with it. If I change the URL I might lose my myriad (yes, I said MYRIAD - fine so maybe it isn't a myriad but it is a least a dozen) of loyal readers. So what to do? Well I think I will change the name but keep the URL for now. Will that work? What do you think? All those in favor of a name change but not a URL change vote Yeah. All those in favor of both a name change and URL change vote NAH. I'll be watching for your comments.

Okay then, since I have already decided to change the name, no matter what you people think about that, let's get on with it. On another web-site I am known as Cupcake. I'm not sure why. It was another one of those split second decisions. It seemed I needed to have a persona and the name stuck and seemed appropriate. Personally, I prefer Princess Cupcake but since we know each other feel free to drop the princess (SMILEY). On the website my tag line was "Just a cupcake in a wedding cake world" (hey I like it and it means something to me). Which leads me, FINALLY, to the new name "It's a Cupcake World". Actually the cupcake sort of fit in on this blog since my identity was the crabby cupcake. AND now I can branch out into the whole world of cupcakes. I feel so liberated. Okay so that's it. The new name. I mean really it's better than my other choice which was "Trivial things I think of every day that make no sense to anyone but me"...

Hmmm, I kind of liked the other name. Not only funny but always thought of actual crabs which reminds me of home. Oh well. ;)
