First of all I am happy to announce that I finally got the domain name I wanted, which is “www.theashtreejournal.com”
So I urge you kindly, to update your bookmarks and stay up to date. Because the Ash Tree Journal is here to stay!
Why the change?
To be honest, I never really liked using my name for anything. And so, when I first opened this blog I was thinking that it would be perfect because it is, well, my name – and that doesn’t change. But as I continued to write, I didn’t really feel as good writing out as much because it didn’t really feel like me.
Am I rambling already?
Why The Ash Tree?
I was asked this question by the lovely Amyn of https://lipglossmaffia.wordpress.com in the spotlight interview she did of me. Check it out here – I really loved reading it and I felt like she described me in such a perfect manner. Go and check it out and subscribe to her blog too! She’s awesome.
Now back to the question, why The Ash Tree?
The Ash Tree is essentially the meaning of my name, Ashley (The Ash tree meadow). I chose the Celtic meaning because I think it applies to me more in life. “The ash speaks to us of growth, expansion, and higher perspective“, we can liken our own soul-growth with that of the ash. With greater (higher) attainment, the more we need to stay grounded (well rooted).
I also like some mystery in my life and I like the fact the Ash has to do with my name but also it cannot be easily guessed that it’s Me, Ashley’s blog.
More ramblings, sorry about that.
Does this affect the content?
No my lovelies, it doesn’t affect the content one bit. Instead I plan to be more personal, write more in my own voice and be more productive in the content releases, I even want to create an editorial calendar (so help me God).
It would really really make me happy if you all could subscribe to my monthly newsletter. Why? you may ask.
