New Name, New Look

Awhile ago I reached my WP storage limit (had no idea there WAS a storage limit until the thing turned red) and had to buy a “plan” to increase storage, and along with that plan came a custom domain name.

I’ve never been sold on name “The Pilgrim Chronicles.” When I started this blog, I just couldn’t think of another name because were were still in the very beginning stages of riding/training and I had no idea what we’d end up doing.

But now that I’m 100% sure that I want to event, I decided not to waste my free domain name on a name I didn’t love. I wanted something eventing-related, and naturally the one of the first things that popped into my head was the familiar saying, “Red on right, white on left, insanity in the middle.”

I thought about “White on Left” in honor of my faux pas at our first BN where I stressed about the table jump and it turned out to be an option that I would’ve seen had I bothered to look for the white flag. But it just didn’t really have that great of a ring to it.

Didn’t really care for “Red on Right,” since there’s no funny joke behind it. “Insanity in the Middle” was what I was leaning towards, then Husband made a joke about being manic in the middle, messing up the line. Buuuut…it had a good ring to it, so I tweaked it to “Mania in the Middle,” and here we are! Husband is even in the middle of drawing me a logo. So official.

Pretty sure you can get to the site using the old address, but really have no clue how all this works. The new address is maniainthemiddle.com.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I’m hoping to get caught up on everyone’s blogs soon- this past week has been a doozy.

  1. Britt over at Red on the Right (good thing you didn’t pick that name! Also she likes Red Wine) changed over to her new blog recently (used to be House on a Hill) just like you and it seemed to of worked out just fine as far as keeping readers from the old blog looped into the new blog so you should be fine! 🙂

    1. Ha, no idea who that is but I like red wine, too! I like white better but just didn’t love the name 🤷‍♀️ At least the link works, I have no idea what I’m doing!

  2. Crazy! I had no idea there was a limit for WordPress free stuff either! I guess I’ll have to find out when mine hits it.

    Definitely, like the name. I feel like it describes you well. 😉 And its faithful to your sport but still unique. Good choice.
