Dos : Behind the Name

Day 2: Meaning behind your blog name.

Why Sexy Bitchy Fabulous? To be honest, it took me a while to figure out why I chose that name myself. But I sat down, and went through a few old posts, and taddaaaa! Here’s a little history on my blog.
I used to be – The Girl : Inside Out
Started my blog back in April 2008, after one of the worst breakups I’ve gone through in my life. I felt like I had to put on a mask for almost everyone around me and needed a way to just let things out whenever I wanted to. Which explains the name. It was my way of saying, this is me. Not the me you see, but the me I am on the inside.
It was my third attempt at starting a blog. The first two, through the then-popular Friendster. Obviously, those two didn’t have very long life spans. At the time I started this blog, Even I had no idea if it would last or not. Who would have known eh?
Then in 2009, I went through a few months of ups and downs with the boy that caused the heartache which got me to start the blog in the first place. (Read old posts if you’re confused) Anyways, after such a rocky few months, I turned 21 and decided I needed what felt like a fresh start. So I moved…
HERE! :) My post on me shifting blog.
Many people seem to assume that SexyBitchyFabulous comes from my belief that I am All That. And that’s why sometimes when people want to leave comments to bitch about me, they tell me I should have picked a different blog name, because I am neither sexy nor fabulous.
But the truth is, I felt really shitty after turning 21. And disappointed in everything that I had put myself through. I was not in a good place in my life. I picked the name not because I felt I was special at that time. I chose the name to remind myself, that I could be. It was the little push I needed to give myself. That boost of confidence.
So you may read : SexyBitchyFabulous. But to me, it has been and always will be : You can do it Charissa. You are an amazing person. Don’t let anything anyone else says or does to you, bring you down. You are strong. And you never have to feel like you can’t conquer the world (if you want to) again.
Who knows? Someday when I feel like I have already conquered the world, or my world at least, I may move my blog again. But for now, I’m happy with the name. No matter what people choose to say about it :)
