I’m not sure all of you know this, but moxee began as a senior project while in undergrad. Not only that, but it wasn’t a blog. It was an online magazine. Obviously, things have naturally morphed and changed over time here under the same name / branding. Moxee has become an extension of myself … I’m an open book and have loved getting to know my readers and sharing my thoughts + what inspires me. It’s 100% my favorite part of what I do.
With that said, there’s a huge part of me that no longer feels attached to the name moxee and what it used to be. After graduation, I had absolutely no idea that I would be working for myself as a freelance designer so soon. I still really can’t believe it. I continued on under the name moxee because it’s what got me where I am today. However, that name feels so much like my past as I find myself at a crossroads with new + exciting opportunities. I am and will always be BREANNA ROSE, but I can’t say the same with moxee.
This has been on my mind for quite awhile, so after reading Jessica’s take on things today, I knew I had to get some more insight, since I’m finding myself in the exact same position. See that picture up there? That’s me! It pretty much sums up how I feel right now. I have high hopes and dreams for my future and couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come. But at the same time, it’s a bit overwhelming.
So now, I’m asking for your help / thoughts! Branding myself under my name, breanna rose, would no doubt give me a larger umbrella to work under. It’s me. The only thing holding me back is knowing how big of a change it is. I’m known throughout the internet world as moxee. Twitter, facebook, etc. Those things would all have to change, too, which makes me nervous. I promise that I’m putting a lot of thought into this. I tend to be rather impatient and make quick decisions, but I know this is bigger than that and deserves time + attention. I’d really love to hear all of your insight, since you guys are a big concern of mine. Don’t worry, I wouldn’t stop blogging or anything drastic. It’s a branding / name change that I’m considering. I don’t want to throw anyone off, but also want to follow my heart.
