You might notice something a little different around here… (and it’s not the fact that there are actually new posts for once.)
Today, I’m excited to introduce my blog’s new name — A Wild Kritten!
I suppose this needs a little explaining. You might be wondering, what’s a kritten? Why is it wild? And why the name change?
Well, you see — a Kritten is me!
Kritten is the nickname my friends gave me back in college and I’ve always been fond of it. Mix Kristen with kitten…and it just kind of stuck. Simple, but fitting.
The reason for the name change, however, is a little more meaningful. When I first started Muddle + Joy, I was about to embark on a new adventure in life. I was moving across the country and starting over from scratch. I felt lost and insecure in who I was and what I was doing.
But over the past year, I’ve done a lot of growing. And the truth is, I’m not searching for anything anymore. I’m not muddling through. I think I’ve finally found my way! In fact, I’ve never felt more sure of myself than I ever have before.
Muddle + Joy just didn’t fit anymore…
So after some deep thinking, I realized that I needed a new identity to truly represent me. You seem, I’m Kritten and I’m exploring the world around me. More adventures! More stories! More of the wild outdoors!
That’s just it — this blog is me. And I’m excited to share my stories with you.
