Five Years Old and, finally, a Name

As my regular readers know, I am in the midst of a complete overhaul of my website. This means I’ve been consulting people and doing lots of looking around at what else is out there. In response to a suggestion from a marketing professional, I’ve decided to name my blog. Hereafter, it will be called Amazed By My Luck.

This comes from an Iris Murdock quote: “Writing is like getting married. One should never commit oneself until one is amazed at one’s luck.”

I like the name, too, because it applies not only to the writing and photography in my life, but to the other things I write and post photographs of on the blog: my family, my teaching, my garden, my sewing, and my other crafting. And, as luck would have it, it was five years ago this week that I launched the blog. So, five years old and, finally, a name.

Not much will change here with regards to the name — until we go live with the new website.

    Reminds me of C. S. Lewis’s Surprised by Joy!, which is a quote from a Wordsworth sonnet.

  • Patty says:

    I like it–since I do believe that luck has a lot to do with the choices that are possible.

  • Good for you, Sarah – though I’m reminded of that quote, “Chance favors only the prepared mind” – if online sources re. Louis Pasteur are correct. (I thought it was a “Luck favors…” quote but I think it’s been changed a bit here and there.) In any regard, lots of hard work and commitment on your part have contributed to your success! :0) Good LUCK with the new name and re-tooled site.
