Pros and Cons in blog re-branding

Regret? kind off actually after what I am facing now especially the drastic drop of my pageviews but I tried to be positive as much as I can.  When there is will there is way! So now here I am sharing points for everyone (well not a pro yet still a learner that doesnt mean that I shouldnt share my points rite!) hehe

Here are the stuff that we (me actually!) need to look into and my point of view in changing my page from sweetsourleyra.blogpspot to umifuzy.blogspot.com.  Gosh its scary but I need to change it desperately (see how bad it is! haha silly me!) its difficult for someone or readers to chew what is the sweetsourleyra and to relate as if the blog is about cooking recipe or worst case its like the topsy turvy live..ohhh NO.

So on 25 May I have decided to end what have haunting me and change.

P/S : Thinking of changing domain is still lingering doubts in my mind!!!!


Pros
  • Have the opportunity to re-brand yourself according to name that you want
  • Pick a name that is different or perhaps unique
  • Pick an original name or whatever name that suits you and you can ensure no one else has. This is a great opportunity if your current name is hard to be remembered or not interesting at all
  • Going through a change is fun and exciting..i hope
  • Changing to the new name might make you feel better and more confident about your blog


Cons

  • Changing your blog name might confuse some of your readers
  • You will need to tell/advise your friend or follower about your name changed if they happen to have you in their blog list
  • If you don't set up a 301 redirect correctly, people could still try to visit your old blog and have trouble finding your new one (this is not a problem if you set up a 301 redirect correctly)
  • Until your new name gets reestablished, people might not know who you are. You lose your established online presence
  • You will have to update all your publisher and author contacts with your new URL and blog name so that they know who you are
  • If your review has been quoted in a book or on a site anywhere, you will lose that connection to your blog, since it will be under the old name
  • You will lose you follower erkkk
  • You will lose all the comments on your entry from your follower and friend

Tips
I have done the re-brand so called and first thing what I do is I create a new blog and give the name same as my previous url that is sweetsourleyra.blogspot which is already known to friends and readers.  The will sure will type sweetsourleyra to go to my blog rite..and from this url they will see info about me changing my url to umifuzy.blogpspot.com...tadaaaa

You can publish in your facebook, instagram, twitter etc on your new url and keep blasting..keep blogwalking to ensure your friends noted of your new url

So far is so good but the truth is I have lose lots means alot and lots of PAGEVIEWS waaaa..like it or not I have to write more interesting entry to get my blog back to norm pv.

Well I dont call them follower since I am just a norm blogger hehe.  

The most high risk about rebranding is PAGEVIEW..PAGEVIEW..PAGEVIEWWW.. what a nightmare!

Me being fickle minded as always 
Me being who talk nonsense too
