Blog Confession Number Two: I Hate the Name of My Blog

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

  • I don’t  like the name of my blog – I want so badly to change it
  • Despite my careful research before I named the blog, I’ve discovered that I’m not the only The Joyful Housewife blog, and that’s a bummer 
  • I’m a synesthete (I perceive letters, numbers and words to have colors)

 First, I wish I had chosen something more catchy for the title my blog, such as Modern Hausfrau. That’s nice isn’t it? I’ve been brainstorming for days, trying to come up with:

  • something better
  • something clever
  • something that I won’t be embarrassed of or defensive about when I tell people about my blog (a major problem for me now)
  • something that won’t make me lose my readers

But I’m picky about aesthetics and I love the way my title looks:

The Joyful Housewife

I love the way the J and the Y and the H and the two Fs look. They make a nicely balanced shape

And, strange as it sounds to most people, I have visual synesthesia,  so for me the title has a pleasant peachy hue.

The Joyful Housewife

So…I guess I’ll keep the name for now.

And, in case you’re wondering, this is roughly how i see my alphabet:
