Thank you so much to everyone for all your AWESOME name ideas for the name my blog contest! There were over 50 name ideas submitted and it was much harder than I thought it would be to narrow down to just one.
I have reviewed and spent time researching almost all the entries, which took a little longer than I thought it would (sorry!). Unfortunately a lot of my favorites were already in use somewhere else online or similar enough to that I would not want to risk using them.
Ultimately I had to go with one that stuck out to me from the beginning, and presented an idea I love which is incorporating my name into the blog name.
So without further ado, the winning entry is:
“Sh-opp-ortunist in Heels” submitted by Caroline and Kari Ann!!
Congrats! I will email you to get your earring color choice and address to send them to.
After thinking about the future name of my blog for over a week now, I love Caroline’s idea to use my name and it has inspired another name idea. Therefore I won’t actually be using “Sh-opp-ortunist In Heels” in the blog title or address, but I do plan to use it elsewhere. I’m not quite ready to announce the new name, I have a few more things to get in order before I do. Hopefully, it will all be ready by next week. Please stick around!
Thanks again to everyone for your support and encouragement!
In my last post I briefly mentioned that some things are happening that I am trying to figure out. Here’s the sitch on that:
Apparently my tiny little blog is infringing on a trademark. Part of the name that I love and spent months trying to come up with is trademarked by someone else, therefore I need to stop using it. So rather than spend another month or more trying to figure out a new name (because honestly I can’t take that long) I am enlisting you, my friends and fellow bloggers to help me out.
From now through next Tuesday in the comments section of this post, submit to me your ideas for a fabulous new name for my blog. I will review all submissions and choose the winner next Wednesday, February 6, 2013.
The winning submission will receive this super cute pair of rosebud earrings from the Etsy shop Liv(e) and Love
in the color of their choice. (options are: Red, Lime, Baby Blue, White, Black, Purple, and Turquoise)
I already have my own pair and I love them.
I love but am not completely attached to the “in heels” portion of my name, so submissions may or may not include that.
I would like the name to reflect somehow on my love of finding style on a budget and/ or thrifting
Please include your email address in your submission so that I can contact you.
I may or may not use the winning submission as the future name for my blog. By entering this contest you authorize me, Tiffany Opp, exclusive rights to use the name you submit for any and all future use online or otherwise.
