What's in a name? And other fun updates

Were you wondering where I went?

My timing was impeccable as always, and I decided to purchase a custom domain name this weekend just in time for the great Blogger meltdown. Did you know you could purchase your own domain name through Blogger and they’ll do all the work to transfer the site over for you? In theory anyway. I think all the kinks have been worked out now, and I’m glad to be back!

AtlantaRunningMom.com is much more indicative of what I’m about. Life in the ATL was a generic name I chose when I first started blogging and was unsure of the direction I wanted to go in. It didn’t take long for my true passions to emerge.

If you’re interested in running, healthy eating for an on-the-go lifestyle, and can tolerate all the gratuitous photos of my (awesome) kiddo…well then you’ll want to update your blog reader with my new URL :) 

I also got more exciting news today. I was selected to be part of Snickers Team Marathon Bar for 2011! I look forward to meeting some of my new teammates at the upcoming San Diego RnR, and representing the Marathon brand at my races this year. Biggest perk…tons of free Marathon Bars! I love these things.


Be on the lookout for some sweet giveaways coming your way soon!

And please excuse my abundant use of exclamation points in this post!!!! It's been a good day!

  2. Thanks EJ!

    Haha, yeah I'll have some branding issues if we move.

    NewJerseyNewYorkAtlantaRunningMom.com just seemed a little too cumbersome :)

  5. Oh my gosh, that is awesome you were selected to be part of the Snickers Team Marathon Bar! How cool you have a custom domain name. I've been thinking about doing that, but I have no idea what to name my blog... so that won't happen. (:

    Congrats again!
