happy blog-iversary 9.6.2009

Happy Blog-iversary to Turned Up to Eleven {formerly Dare to be Domestic}! Wow,  it's hard to believe on this day, 3 years ago I started this blog. Through it's small life it's changed, evolved, sat dormant and then got rediscovered again. I've enjoyed the journey so far and look forward to what the future holds for this little puppy. It's time to celebrate!

Celebrating like I'm a Beatle, on a Thursday - via

When I started blogging I was into improvement, cooking and wanting to express that with Dare to be Domestic. After a year or so I started to feel painted into a corner. I often felt like I wanted to write about more than keeping a nice home, eating or making delicious treats and while I loved the name I just felt stuck. I also discovered the name was already used - I should have researched more before declaring my blog name, but I was young, (figuratively, not literally) and a newbie to this and didn't think to take time to google search.


I realized I was more than just a woman, wanting to write about stuff I do around my home. I write about my life and while Dare to be Domestic was a fun moniker it didn't feel very lifestyle open, but a bit too specific for my ever changing opinions, growth and exploration through life.

I took to brainstorming and researching new names. The young (again, not literally) grasshopper had learned a lesson. Through my constant list making, and brainstorming, Turned up to Eleven was born and while I'm still trying to get used to this new space I feel like for now, it fits me. I try to live life to the fullest, I try not to waste time (but it still happens) and I try my best to always live life turned up to eleven.

My new blog takes my love for movies, my love for music, cooking, the great outdoors, and my lust for living life and tosses them all together.

I look forward to this next leg of my journey in blogging and growing this place into something more than it currently is. If you're still a follower/subscriber from the start of my blog, I'm so happy and thankful you are still here. If you are new, welcome, relax and stay a while - and if you're still on the fence I promise to try to do something to totally blow your mind soon!

For now let's celebrate Formerly Dare to be Domestic and now Turned up to Eleven is now three years old, and anxious to start the rest of it's life with all of you, and so am I!

Pin It!
