goodbye, Dot!


As you can see, Dot in the City has changed its name! We are now The Goad Abode :) I've thinking about re-branding for a while now and given the extra time with our blizzard conditions decided to just go for it.

The name change means my Twitter handle, Facebook page, and Instagram handle have also been updated to match! Pinterest and email are staying the same (for now).

What do you think of the new name and banner?

The name isn't really new. I've been calling our home 'the Goad abode' ever since we got married over two years ago. As I was thinking of a new blog name, it just made sense. As much as the blog is a reflection of me, it's also a reflection of married life, our home improvement projects and so much more!

I also wanted to get away from a name that wasn't actually mine: Dot. Whenever someone emails me and says "Hey, Dot" I'm not really sure how to reply.

Hope you like the new name and look around here!

    I especially love the coral and grey color scheme. I miss all the times hanging at the actual Goad Abode and I hope it's staying warm and safe during the storm!

    Dot in the City was cute but you don't live directly in the city anymore, so it wasn't the truest title for your blog (at least I think I remember you telling me you moved). Also love the fonts :)

    1. So far, so good! I didn't change the URL, so it was just a matter of changing names on my FB page, twitter handle, HelloCotton, Bloglovin, etc. It's amazing how many accounts we have for blogging :)
