30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 2

Day 2: Meaning Behind Blog Name

Yay! We have made it to Day 2 (and I remembered!)! If you didn't read yesterdays's post, I'm taking part in Katie's 30 Day Blog Challenge. Today's challenge is to share the meaning of the name of your blog!

The name of my blog (if you can't tell) is "Not Your Everyday Cinderella". The story behind the name...well, that's a little more complex. It all started with my Mom. She started a blog about our family and named it "Everyday Adam". And, I jumped on the blogging train and started a blog called "Everyday Lauren". In that blog, I blogged about what I was reading in the Bible and learning about at church and all that fun stuff. Then, I decided I wanted to start a blog about my life and all that fun stuff. I was a freshman away from home at college at the time and it sounded like a good idea. So, I wanted something that kind-of went with Everyday Lauren but wasn't too matchy-matchy. And I really like princesses, especially Disney, so I decided that Cinderella should be in the title somewhere. And then, I realized that I'm NOT an everyday Cinderella. I'm a unique human being created by God. I am myself. So, thus came the name, "Not Your Everyday Cinderella".

I've thought about changing it several times, but I haven't found a name that I liked better yet. So, for now, the name is staying. :)


  1. Such a fun name and I think you should just keep it!!

  2. Love the story and your blog name...it is so true!

  3. I agree...keep it. When I first saw your blog name I thought it was adorable! =)

  4. Last night I started a new challenge too. It's called 30 Days of Comments where I comment on a blog everyday. I like the name too... it matches.
