It’s a sweet mixture of emotions swimming, nay flying, inside my belly right now. I can’t believe I’m finally sitting down and finalizing this change. As of May 2020, fitcouchpotato is going to be rebranded to ButterflyFingers.
Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit! I’m actually doing this! EEPPPPPPPPPP!!!
This change has been a long time coming, but if I’m perfectly honest, I’ve been afraid. It just always felt like an incredibly big change and something I needed to be 110% sure about. It baffles me how I can be so impulsive with quite big decisions in my life but on the flip side, I can be so indecisive over the smallest things. Although saying that, this isn’t a small change. It’s going to be confusing. I’ve spent these last 3 years as fitcouchpotato, and before that, a good 4 years as fitcouchpotato online. I’m attached. But, it just doesn’t fit anymore.
It’s not you. It’s me. I will always love you but it’s time to move on. Shhhh, don’t cry. I know change is scary, but it’s natural.
When I launched this website, I was actively, almost obsessively, into fitness. I breathed, talked and cried fitness. Leading up to the launch, my life was packed full of fitness and I understandingly thought that my website would reflect that. At the time, I was playing around with the idea of becoming a lifestyle coach, a blend between a personal trainer and a nutritionist if I have to explain it. Life, however, had other plans. My website very quickly fell into it’s own special blend of content and over time, the fitcouchpotato brand just didn’t fit or make sense. Considering, it’s been over a year since my last fitness related blog. How badly it fits was highlighted when I started to make big website changes. I realized what I needed to do, but gathering the courage to take the leap, took a few months.
ButterflyFingers is a blast from the past. I can’t even begin to explain how much power it holds. It’s packed with nostalgia, happiness and represents a simpler time in my life. It’s been my Wattpad username for years. It fits. It captures me as a writer. It was my past, but now it can be my future.
What does this mean for you?
Other than the fact that you need to somewhere store in the back of your mind that I’m no longer fitcouchpotato, the rest will be done automatically. If you have any old links saved somewhere, it will still work. You will just get redirected to the new domain. The same goes for everyone that types fitcouchpotato in the search bar. You will get redirected to ButterflyFingers. Luckily, it’s quite a simple process so hopefully it won’t be too confusing to my old readers.
So, without further ado…
Welcome to ButterflyFingers and I will see you in a click!
