Happy almost Friday! I have a big announcement to make – my blog name has changed from Letters Impromptu to Samantha Mariko. I know I should’ve made an announcement before the change took place… sorry about that. Why did I make this change? I started blogging as Letters Impromptu back in college, and after much thought, I decided it was time to move on and fully embrace my own name.
The rebranding process was made possible thanks to my very good friend Alex, who met with me to discuss the rebranding process while I was in California (he stayed at the cafe with me for 5 straight hours!), and gave me suggestions for layouts, fonts, etc and etc. I am so pleased that my blog looks just the way I had wanted it to look. I am so lucky to have a smart, patient and talented friend like Alex.
重大な発表です!ブログの名前をやっと変えました!今までLetters Impromptu としてブログをやっていましたが、これからは自分の名前、サマンサ麻里子としてブログを続けて行きたいと思います!今後もどうぞよろしくお願いします。
You can now access my blog via www.samanthamariko.com, which is linked to www.lettersimpromptu.blogspot.com.
And do me a favor and check out my friend Alex’s website at http://alexziebol.com !
Let me know your thoughts 🙂 Have a great weekend!

Samantha I love that you changed to your own name, I think that's cool. I read somewhere that everyone should buy their own domain name, whether they use it or not, just in case. I still haven't done it, but I keep saying I will eventually lol.

Your blog looks good and I can't wait to see more new posts 🙂

Aww, that's so sweet of him! Congratulations on the move to rebrand, I see only good things happening there! I've been thinking of doing the same, but I'm hesitant that I've already got too much association with my current username : Which is why I think it's awesome that you jumped on it!

I actually love the idea of having our own name as a blog name, it's definitely unique! 🙂 I'm thinking of changing mine too, but it's hard when companies know me by my current blog name, I'm scared to loose blog traffic for it 🙁

Take care always, love Christine ~ xx

I love the new name change. Your name is fabulous, I wish I could do the same with my own but it just doesn't roll off the tongue attractively enough.
