Naming the Blog

My Writing Journey has been the title of my blog since it's inception--it was for lack of a better title and at the time was appropriate.  I used the blog only a bit, and mostly as a journal.  I had no followers, and no hope of followers.  I had no idea how one even went about getting followers.

Flash forward three years.  I've got 71 followers (::waves::), I blog regularly, and try to contribute something to the blogging writer's community.  I feel like I've outgrown the old title.  So I'm trying on new names.  Since I write, for the most part, realistic YA and nonfiction MG...I was thinking "Writing. For Real." had a sort of nice double meaning.  Or maybe, "Writing. Really." (that sort of seems a bit desperate, though.).

Really Writing?
Or something related to golf to link it to my currently being queried novel: Hitting the Keys, Tales from the Clubhouse.
I could go cutesy: Krissy's World. (no, just joking on that one.)
Asselin's Adventure

Ok, the ideas are getting worse, not better.  I'm kind of liking Writing. For Real. 

I'd love any comments!

I really like the new title! It caught my attention right away! *waves back*

I agree with Aubrie. Writing. For Real. Much better than My Writing Journey - although that one's not so bad. Besides, I follow another blog with exactly the same title, so this will shake it up a little.
I use my name for a title - that's sort of lame (or not, I haven't decided), but I haven't thought of anything better yet.
Have a great weekend. :)

Thanks everyone. I've been trying to come up with something new for a while. I think this one's a keeper!

I agree. I love the double meaning--it's totally a keeper.
