The other day Hubby mentioned to me that he spent some time that morning reading my blog. After picking myself up from the floor that he even found it, I was interested to hear what he thought about the old Sandwich spot.
I was a little shocked about his first observation and after thinking about it for a while; I wondered if his perspective was correct.
Hubby explained that although our lives were constantly surrounded by the “Sandwich Generation” concept, he wondered if many people out in the blogosphere actually knew what the term meant.
That lead to a discussion that maybe the blog title “Simply Sandwich” may be too vague and folks may not visit because they think it is a recipe site. Yikes! I had not thought of that. Convinced that he did not understand my bloggy peeps, I continued on my merry way.
Within the week of our discussion, I encountered several comments referring to my sandwich making ability or lunchtime options.
Aaaaak! It is true! Folks are confused about my blog. So, I took a little poll on my Facebook Fan Page and guess what I found out? My question was:
“Hey friends, I need your help! Would you please fill out this quick poll? Have you ever heard of the term “Sandwich Generation”?” The answers were:
Yes I have! = 59%
Nope = 38%
Possibly, don’t really remember. = 3%
A major identity frenzy began and I even considered changing my blog name. Here are a few new blog name possibilities:
- I Do Not Make Sandwiches.com
- Sorry My Blog Name is Confusing.com
- I Am Sandwiched In Between my Kids and Parents Still.com
- Where Do I Fit In.com
- Blogger Identity Crisis.com
Instead of re-creating the wheel I think it is time for me to do some internal soul searching about my blog niche, my writing and if I should continue with this endeavor.
Although I do love the connections that my little corner of the blogosphere created, I am not quite sure about keeping my spot around and think a break is in order to digest my thoughts a bit.
I want to thank all of my readers for your support and bloggy love over the past two years. It means the world to me! This is not goodbye, I still plan to visit your blogs because frankly, they really inspire me!
I wish you all a wonderful a blessed holiday season!
