Y’all, I did it! I finally changed my blog name and redid the
entire site. It was also way more tedious than I ever thought it would
Thinking of a new blog name is hard. Really hard. I
wanted to get away from “Kinder Kronicles” because even though I am
going to be sharing all of my teaching resources, I wanted it to also be
more personal. I would love to share some recipes and some stories
about our home. I didn’t feel like I could with my last blog set up. I
think this one is a bit more personal.
more thing, I added “aka ShibbyNugz” in my signature. I know it seems
weird… I get it, but let me explain!!! First of all, I desperately
wanted to name my blog ShibbyNugz but my hubby and best friend let me
know its… weird… and people wouldn’t get it. I know they are right
but when I was at my wits end when it came to naming my blog, it was so
tempting. Since I was born I have had the nickname “Nugz” my parents and
husband call me Nugz and even some friends do. It started off as
Snuggles when I was a baby because my grandpa worked for the Lever
company and I wore a bunch of items with “Snuggles” (as in the laundry
softener) on it. I even was obsessed with Snuggles the Bear. My dad
somehow turned the name to Nuggles and then just Nugz. Seriously though,
hearing my mom or dad call me “Ashley” is just plain weird. As for
where Shibby came from… that is a little more embarrassing. Years and
years ago, 16 years ago to be exact, I had an unhealthy obsession with
the movie Dude, Where’s my Car? I thought it was the funniest
thing I had ever seen. Not to mention I was planning to marry Sean
William Scott. Being the teeny-bopper that I was, I added Shibby and
Nugz together to make my AIM screen name. Because, you know, I was cool.
It honestly has been my user name for everything since then. Since all
my social media was “ShibbyNugz” I thought it would be so simple to have
my blog be so. Since it’s smarter to steer clear of that as a name, I
have it in my signature so the blog is still somehow associated with
Now that we got that out of the way, I am
excited to jump into blogging more. I have so many ideas and I can’t
wait to share them!!!
