The Mum Diaries

From Slugs and Snail to The Mum Diaries and why?

When I first started blogging a few years back I chose the name Slugs and Snail. I loved that people would think of the rhyme

“Sugar and spice and all things nice,
That’s what little girls are made of.
Slugs and snails and puppy-dog’s tails,
That’s what little boys are made of.”

And having 3 boys what would be more appropriate? When people think of boys (yes it is very stereotypical) but mud, eating bugs and being adventurous tends to top most descriptive lists, and it just about happens to basically describes 2 out of 3 of my boys.


It wasn’t until I started looking up tights I realised that there was a company with the name Slugs and Snails (probably the reason why I couldn’t have that domain name) at first I thought “That’s fine”

Fast forward to now, and it is starting to bother me a little, I didn’t want to become more established and be more known as Slugs and Snail and then have to go through the renaming further down the line.

So without further ado, say hello to The Mums Diaries, pretty much the same, but with a cooler name 🙂

I have been working so hard behind the scenes, I have not only renamed my blog, but also transferred over to a new hosting site and from blogger to wordpress, so lots of different changes. That change has enabled me to be a bit more adventurous with the appearance of the blog, something I am really psyched over!

Coming soon, is the revealing of my new logo! So excited!

Let me know your thoughts of the name? Good move or a bad one?
