Let me ask you one thing. When you think of Daring Coco, how do you perceive it? Is it eclectic? Bohemian? Monotonous? Distinguished? Audacious? Wordsmith? Poser? Unoriginal?

An article on Decor8 caught my attention and has me contemplating the possibility of rebranding and redeveloping this blog anew. Starting from scratch with a new platform, unique content and most importantly a different name. Leaving behind the old and onto something new. Greener pastures perhaps? An exciting new beginning for me and a way to properly redesign, completely commit and finally focus on what I've always wanted to create here. Beginning with a new name. It really is something I've been toying with for a while now. "Daring Coco" seems to be so misunderstood with the masses. And I can see why. It easily comes across as referring to being bold and brave when in fact the true meaning is actually a juxtaposition referring to my beloved poochie-pie, who try as she might, is anything but daring. It's a silly play on words but one that I originally put a fair amount of thought into. I don't know why but in being so misconceived like this, it irks me to bits. Probably because the same can be said for a lot of things on this blog in general.

It's no secret that over the past twelve (or more) months I have struggled with providing consistent content that I am satisfied with. I've felt a firm itch of late to branch out into other areas and thoroughly explore the lifestyle section of my blog, rather than being so fixated with the style stuff. Now don't get me wrong, I do love fashion but I also have other interests that I'd like to dabble with too. My problem lies in being unsure. I just don't know how to begin and I guess I'm a little frightened of scaring some of you away with these changes. Us humans are a stubborn bunch when it comes to change after all. This will be no easy feat. It definitely requires a lot of hard work and dedication considering how I'll be starting all over again. From the ground up. Especially if I move to a different platform like Wordpress or Squarespace.

There are many things keeping me from jumping into this deep end. For one there's the name itself, aptly titled after my fur-baby Chanel. And I do love it's flow, sometimes. It's far from poetic but memorable nonetheless. A name is quintessential to a brand. It shapes your identity and is the first point of engagement, thus making it a crucial detail. Everything else is forged around it so there has to be a genuine affiliation to make it truly memorable. And isn't that what you ultimately want in a name; to evoke effortlessly? I feel like the name "Daring Coco" interprets this somewhat. Those words are fun and do refer to an edginess which is what I am all about. But from a typography stand point they're pretty boring characters to play with too.

And as exciting as this sounds, the thing is do I really want to take this plunge and work my way up once again? Going through those tedious motions of adjusting to different programs, creating new profiles, transferring accounts and all? And of course, would you all follow me on this crazy new journey too? Move with me?

Has anyone else been entertaining this very thing? Or better yet taken action? If so, enlighten me please on such an arduous task. Because at the same time I feel such a strong bond with this blog. It is after all my baby and I do love it deeply so I am hesitant to cut ties. During it's beginnings I truthfully had no idea what I was doing nor where I wanted to steer it. I fell into the blog world by mistake and it's one that I'm glad was made, for it opened up a new world of reach, possibility and most importantly friendships. And to abruptly conclude this chapter feels like a disservice. Surrendering when times have gotten tough or inconvenient. I am not a quitter. Or am I?

I'm seemingly unsure what to do but rest assured I'll keep you in the loop. A great point made in the article was to slowly progress to change. Allow it to drag out for months, continually making mention of said changes and said name. So if I were to take such drastic measures it wouldn't happen overnight. I don't think I'd be capable of delivering such a task in that amount of time anyway. Procrastination can be a weakness of mine at times.

Love always.

  4. I think that every blogger has the same thoughts as you Sonia. We think about changing everything all the time. I would love to change our name cos I was never happy about it. Sadly my sisters won't agree with me. I hate our layout as well. Omg I need to stop complaining now cos I'm not beiing very helpful. I love your blog the way it is but if you change it I'll move with you. Wish you a happy hump day!

    1. Thank you Mira and I have to admit I love your name. It's chic and edgy, everything I love about fashion and it is you guys to a T. I guess layouts can be frivolous things. They're easy to change (sometimes, HTML and I are not the greatest of friends) and there is a lot to choose from now and at different price points too. Thank you Etsy! Hehehehe. I think as bloggers we can find ourselves getting caught up on the finer details right. We are also our toughest critics too. Thanks for sharing your opinion Mira, I really appreciate it. xx

  5. You could always try the switch - get a new blog new name, and test it out before you switch this one over to it?

    That way you know you can always return if the new direction doesn't give you what you hope for? And if you like it you can make this domain redirect to the new one so everyone comes across? Something to think about anyway, if you haven't thought about it already :)

    1. You make a really valid point. I started the process when I first read your comment Mica (sorry for the delayed reply though) and found the name I'd been toying with already has a blog allocated to it. Grrrr. That was annoying especially since their last post was entered in 2007. Thought the URL itself is free. I might give it a go and see how I feel. Thanks for this solid bit of advice xx

  6. Do what feels right! As you can see, I rebranded as well and am also looking into moving to a new theme. I just felt like I wanted something representing all types of luxuries, tangible and intangible.

  9. I've also been contemplating making a change of some sort but I tend to be the sort who's resistant so it will take me awhile to get moving on it. I just made a series of small changes to my blog progressively to get it to where I wanted. If you feel like you need to move in a new direction, you should do it. The most important thing is that it's something you're happy with.

  10. I think a new start can be really creativity boosting but I can understand that you don't want to give up on your baby and the name. I am not that satisfied with mine anymore either but I'm too afraid to change because it was a hard job establishing that blog under that name. And still if you're not 100% satisfied with this blog anymore, you should dare to make the change and if you find a way to inform your readers and take them over to the new blog they will follow you. I surely will as you caught my attention and I'm curious at what you would come up with!

I also wanted to switch platforms but changed my mind after I thought of all I had to do and most importantly losing content that I had worked so hard to create. I ended up making subtle changes to what I already had in place and I'm happy with it, for now lol. But hey, go with your instincts.

  38. I feel the same way as you Sonia, feels like I want to change my blog name. I picked it originally to associate it slightly with my own name but I dont like the fact that it doesn't really say much about what my blog is about. It's kinda tricky to pick between having your name as part of it or if you want it to be about the content of your blog. Funny how you say that many people associate your blog name to something bold and brave since that was my first impression too since the word "daring" is all about that.. but I completely understand now by how you explained it. I love how you're putting so much thought into your blog name, I wish I did the same thing, now I find it so difficult to change it. I'm sure whatever you decide on your new blog name and content, it will still be a reflection of you and that's what's important :)

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xx

    1. Yeah, that is the actual definition of it. And perhaps I never really made its intentions clear either. This is actually the second name I;ve gone through with this blog Christine. When I first, first started it was actually just "sonia de macedo". Original right?! Hahaha! So I guess I've gone through that process that perhaps you're stuck on. I did put a lot of thought into this name because I failed so disastrously (and unoriginally) with the pervious one. Thank you for your feedback. I really appreciate it Christine and hope you can find some peace with your own blog name too xx

  41. Sonia, You know my views on this as we've talked about making changes to our blogs and shared some of our takes before. Your blog to me is consistent in that it always evokes a very artistic feel. When I say "artistic", it's more in a contemporary way, like a dilettante artist. It's the way you style your posts, your photos, your layout, your language style etc. Hence to me, I feel that there is consistency. I like your blog coz it isn't all just about fashion or all just about beauty. I like it precisely it has variety yet not being mish mash. Don't you find my blog a mish mash? Lol... I was glad that I came up with Jo's Jumbled Jardiniere all the way back then coz I simply do not know how it would turn out and if it turns out super random, I still could account for it that it's "jumbled". Don't you think my url sucks? I'm surprised all the Jolenes in the world do not hate me for claiming that iamjolene. Lol...On to your url, I NEVER KNEW it was a juxtaposition of your dog and a quality that she tries but would never be. This is a revelation to me. My initial impression of your blog is that you are called or nicknamed "Coco" and that you're trying to push the boundaries by being daring. You might think that adds on to another person misunderstanding your blog name though I think that it doesn't mean you have to change your blog url coz of the misinterpretation. A blog name grows with time and with the audience and I think that changing blog name would result in losing quite a couple of important stuff like your followers and the lack of association. I don't know if you know what I mean. As much as I think my blog url is silly, I won't change it coz it has slowly grown to represent me. Almost all my social media accounts used this name and it has since become synonymous to me. It's the same way with your blog name. I think I've already formed your blog name with an association with you.

    No matter what you change about your blog, I'm very sure all your loyal blog friends would support you and follow you all the way. There could only be one Sonia like you! =)

    RYC:
    Nah... I already mentioned that there is no obligation to do it and I perfectly understand coz I'm just like you too. It's just as fun to read your answers here too. We have so much in common! You know what? I don't think I've ever seen proper full face shot and back shot of yourself! Your photos are always so artistically angled. You have t take a picture of yourself more and of your hair too coz I wanna see the back of your hair. Hahaha... It must be really lovely for your hairdresser to say so.

    I just liked your FB public page, Sonia. I usually like to show support to the blog friends I like by liking their social media stuff and I can't believe I didn't like your FB page before. Lemme know if you wanna connect on our personal FB page too. I'm recently connecting with a lot of my favourite blog people on FB and I hope you would be one of them too!

    1. Nawww Jo thank you for your words. I'd never viewed this as "artistic" in anyway before. That is such a huge compliment though. I do put a lot of effort into selecting images and creating graphics that aren't garish or "cheap" looking. Something simplistic but not. If that makes any sense. Dilettante for sure. Re your blog, I've never considered it to be mish-mash at all. I feel like it's a consistent theme and that being of your personal life. Like a journal entry. You share details of your days or weeks. Catch up's with friends and family and you always delve into how important they are. You draw us into your world so easily with your words and photos. You make everyone feel welcome too. It's what first drew me into your blog. There was such a cool sense of community that wasn't exclusive. All it asked for was a genuine participation and interest. BTW I also agree with the points on the name. You pretty much said what I wasn't able to in your comment. That is what holds me back most, because it has been established, long ago no less that that is me. And to change it and start from scratch will be a lot of work trying to garner that kind of association again. You've given me a lot to think about, especially the name. The general consensus is to keep it because it's what everyone knows me as. It kind of seems silly to modify it. I do like it and I think after reading everyone's comments it has me embracing it slightly and not shunning it like a leper.

      Oh and I would love to connect with your good self on FB. I think I am following you over there, I don't know, I'll have to check. Sometimes I connect on one medium, forget to do the same for others then think I have done so for everything lol. Thanks for the FB follow though lovely. We'll sort something out. Much love to you Jo xx

  45. Well, as you know already I'm a huge fan of your blog (particularly the writing) and so wherever you go, I shall follow (oh god.. try your best not to laugh at that haha). In all seriousness though, if you feel at all uncomfortable with where your blog is at right now, I would trust your instincts and take the plunge. So long as you implement small changes over an elongated length of time, making moves towards the blog image you'd like, then you're unlikely to encounter any nasty surprises or feeling of contempt towards the 'new' blog imagine!

  55. I've been struggling with this too. I'd like to change my blog name but I already worked so hard on my header and image mapping it, I kind of don't want to. My blog isn't how I want it to be and my follower count is definitely not moving or growing at all, so I think about starting all over all the time. I just want you to know you're not alone in your unsure-ness.

    1. Thank you Zoe for sharing this, it is so comforting to know I'm not the only one feeling these feelings. It's also incredible how much support and love everyone has shown me too. xx

  56. This is pretty usual among bloggers, but think well before go: why you liked it when you choose the first time?
    Maybe it means something for you, maybe not... anyway if you change you can always came back!^^

  57. I can see where you are coming from.. in fact i have been feeling the same about my blogs name.. and after reading your post I am even more sure that I too.. in name am in need of a change. The blog was meant to be just a about photography and now it is 25% about photography and 75% about everything else..
    While not easy at first but sometimes change is exactly what we need.

    1. Good point. Isn't it amazing to reflect back on the progression of our blogs Hena. How far we've come or strayed from original goals. How much we've grown and enjoyed the ride. Thank you for sharing your thoughts xx

  62. Love the picture and love the fact you communicate with the readers so much and write as much as you do. It reflects of who you are and gives at least a glimpse of who you are if I can correct myself :). You seem creative as your pics show and the name of the blog is fashionable and I really like it...Keep on the good work hun
