Should  I change the name of my blogging site and web site?  When I spoke to a couple of publishers about my two books I am writing which are about Nanny Cool and her adventures they both thought immediately that they were going to be children’s stories.   As they are not, is the name misleading but then I would have to take Nanny Cool out of the books which I guess would be better.  My grandchildren thought of the name obviously because they think I am cool, lol.  My blog covers a lot of things including my family so it is personal to me but the posts are very varied so should I change what I write about and go in another direction?  I could keep the blog as Nanny Cool as it is about family, change the books to just be stories and change the name of the web site so it can include a few things.  My head is full of all different roads and I am not sure which one I am on at the moment.  Can I ask you the readers what do you think?  All ideas very welcome. x

My eldest grandson was 14 on Friday, where does the time go, it only seems like a few years ago he was born not 14.  He got mostly money for his birthday so he was off on a shopping trip today to Canterbury to buy clothes, I was surprised at that as it’s normally the girls that want the clothes but I am obviously out of touch as clothes are very important to boys today.  

It’s been a horrid rainy windy day today so I have been reading and catching up on some tv I had recorded.  My plants appear to be doing so well in the kitchen, the beetroot seeds appear to have all grown but I am not sure what is going on with the asparagus as each heart has just one stem that is growing and growing and will be to the ceiling soon!  

I spent a couple of hours on Pinterest and changed a few boards around and pinned some more pictures.  It’s surprising how your thoughts about what you like change after a few months as what I had put on my wish/birthday/Christmas list board had changed and I got rid of a lot of things but then added some more.  There would always be something you want on Pinterest, maybe I should stop looking!  

Hope your all having a great weekend and the weather is better tommorow.

    I am trying to be optimistic but I am a very negative person and today appears to be a negative day. I am going to pick Mia up from play school I am sure she will brighten my day xxxxxx

    It matters not what a publisher thinks, in the
    sense of what genre your books are, it is readers
    that cement the future, and I hope that your
    books will pave the way to a brighter and happier
    future in writing for you Karen 🙂

    Thank you, I will definitely keep doing the blog as I love that and can always think of stuff to write about. All I have to do now is think of a new name for the website and that is not easy. Xx

    Nanny Cool is a beautiful name. But I agree that the first thought that comes to your mind is books for kids. But if you are comfortable with the name there is no reason why you should not promote it. People tend to accept it soon. It’s your take completely. But we love your blog.

    You’ve probably hit on the best ideas on your own. Change the title of the website but keep the title Nanny Cool for the blog since all your followers know that. Change the title of the books to a more adult theme and add a new page to the website dedicated to the books. You can keep people up to date with progress and also use it to promote the books when they’re out.
    Whatever you do has ti be something you’re ultimately happy and comfortable with. My only concern is a selfish one, that you don’t stop writing the entertaining blog we have now.

    Yes, I can understand why they said that. I think I will change the books. Thank you for your thoughts xx

    Well, to be honest, if one hasn’t read your blog, we would think it’s about children or the adventures of a nanny to children. See the problem with publishers? They think that way. They see Nanny Cool and they think Marry Poppins. LOL could be worse I suppose. 😉
    As for name changing, it’s your blog, you need to be comfortable and happy with the name of if.

What do you think?
