Dear Beautiful People,
After blogging as Style Mentor™ for six months and having certain "issues" with my blog, I have made some big changes.
The fact is, the name 'Style Mentor' belongs to a Korean clothing company. They own the dot com and dot net. That is why I picked StyleMentor.US in the first place. The Korean clothing company 'Style Mentor' is not in the US and they haven't trademarked the name here either, so it seemed okay.
But let's face it.
NO ONE gets the 'dot US' thing. I was at a fashion show yesterday and when I said my domain was StyleMentor.US, they looked at me like I was from outer space. "What is a DOT US" they would ask?
The other issue I have had with this blog is COMMENTS.
I cannot reply to comments here because of the platform. So I have been going to you my lovely bloggers, hoping my comments on your blogs would suffice.
The problem is, it looks like I don't engage with anyone on my own blog, even though I comment on other blogs regularly.
The answer I came up with was to change the URL to a dot COM and change the platform to one that would allow me to comment on my comments.
Fortunately, Squarespace 6 was released a while back, and I was excited to use it because one of the new features was allowing a blogger to comment on the comments. I was thrilled!
But it took me several weeks to get used to the new Squarespace.
During that time I bought different URLS, hoping they would work instead of StyleMentor.US.
I decided that none of them worked for me and who I was.
Then today, I decided I MUST come up with a new URL that I can build on.
I wanted a URL that described my rediscovered 'high style'.
I wanted HighStyle.com or HigherStyle.com, but they have been taken by someone who is hoping for an offer of thousands for a domain that has not been built.
I then tried StyleHigher.com and it was available. I thought about it and realized that StyleHigher.com was my URL.
It wasn't until I started to 'Style Higher' that I found my style again.
It wasn't until I was honest with myself about what I really loved and wanted, that I was able to be true to who I really was.
It wasn't until I looked up, higher than before, that I realized what I was missing in my life.
I had to Style Higher in order to change my destiny.
I now Style Higher™ regularly and I can honestly say, it has changed my life for the better.
Please join me as I reach for greater and greater heights on my new blog, StyleHigher.com.
