As you may have noticed, my blog is looking a little different these days!
One of the biggest changes?
I’ve been struggling with my blog’s name ever since I made it. I wanted to get off the ground running with my blog when I started it way back when, but I couldn’t think of a good blog name, so I just used my Twitter handle, margaretfogs. It just started to feel safe and boring to me, and doesn’t really say anything about what my blog is. I’ve been trying to think of new names for the blog for years, and it wasn’t until after I finished my first round of the Whole30 that it came to me, thanks to a chat with my husband – Wholly Margaret.
This blog is here for me to share my thoughts, ideas, photos, opinions, recipes, and stories as I pave my winding path through life. As a twenty-something who is right in the middle of that good ol’ post-grad identity struggle, I have never been able to nail down exactly what my blog is about, since my life isn’t really about anything in particular! I’m not a mom, I don’t have a job that I’m crazy about, I’m not great at cooking or developing recipes, and most of my passions are just hobbies. This blog is like a metaphor for my life – all over the place, and not fully defined. Yet, I am wholly me through all of this, or at least I hope to be. Wholly, utterly, entirely, fully Margaret.
Now that I have the name locked down, I am hoping that this will help me blog more confidently and frequently. I’ve got at least 20 unfinished drafts of blog posts saved up through the years, and I want to see lots of these ideas through to completion. I am so excited to see where this will take me!

Margaret, I think sometimes one underestimates the impact that names have but really a name can change the direction of whatever it is that we are naming, it gives us direction & character & personality to whatever it is; it is just as important as the design in my opinion. Just like what you are doing here, the name gives us a start and we can really move forward and invest. Best wishes!
Well, actually, we already have the direction & character to give to the name; the name just has to reflect it properly which is not an easy process sometimes.
