Mumsy Mum, Clarissa and now Clare Lee – WT Frick!?

If you’re wondering what this is all about. This is the number of times I have changed my domain and website not to mention annoying the hell out of the self-hosting guys at TSO host, haha! If you haven’t heard of me already, why the hell not?

I’m the one who procrastinates, the indecisive one! The one that is always striving for more and spams your feed on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram if we’re friends – If not…don’t be shy click the links and give me a follow – pretty please 🙂

I loved ‘Mumsy Mum’ a cheeky spin-off the ‘The Unmumsy Mum‘ who yes I did tag in all my posts until eventually she got in touch and followed me back, haha! Ps she’s such a down to earth babe!

I took the leap of faith to change my name after I attended a small blog gathering and was told that my style of blog and name wouldn’t particularly gel well with that company. It was a food brand. I was like ‘what the hell? So because I’m a ‘Mum’, I don’t eat anymore?’ Nonetheless I talked the brand round, but haven’t heard anything back after my post. Perhaps it was because I complained the Cavier they sent went out of date 2 days after I received the parcel – oopsy!

‘Clarissa’ felt like a good idea at the time but crashed and burned after I got business cards made and attended ‘Blog On’ (click here to read all about the event)

Fellow bloggers would either say ‘Oh hi, you’re Clarissa’ which then I would quietly reply ‘yes’ and swiftly move onto justifying my life story as to why I changed from ‘Mumsy Mum.’ Where in turn they probably walked off thinking ‘wtf, why did I say hi’ haha! Or I got asked my name and I’d whisper ‘Clarissa’ with a total lack of confidence.

That’s not me – lack of confidence, quiet, shy, a hide away. Actually at these events I’m quite the opposite! Click here to read about my time at Brit Mums. I was one of the first nutters to jump on the trampoline in front of a room full of people to test out the weakness of my bladder (hands over eyes!) Diary Doll and not afraid to snuggle up to Mim Mim & Noddy for selfies!

I’m pretty certain that I will NOT change my name again! After all ‘Clare Lee’ is 100% authenticated and there is no way of getting away from the real me. Everything I say or do is me, so why try to be something/ someone I’m not?

Not sure why I felt the need to justify myself but hey ho now you know! 🙂
