Blog for Sale! (And Winner Announcement)

Yesterday's post went out by accident, so I apologize for the missing winner announcement.

I  still can't figure out how that happened, but in any case, here is the winner of the current giveaway: 



Veronica Sternberg!*




When I first started this blog, I called it "Today's Woman of Faith" because I was posting devotionals and Christian content with regard to books, ministries, and current events.

I've veered away from those posts--not because I'm less interested in these things but I really enjoy sharing information regarding healthy living and "honest learning." So I've prayed about it and agonized over it and I've decided to put the blog up for sale so that I can start one with a title that is more fitting for my content.


Do you know of a ministry that might want the WOMAN OF FAITH blog to call their own? Please spread the word that it's up for sale.


As for what to title my new blog? I need your help with that!

There are literally tons of food blogs and recipe blogs, but mine will be geared towards healthy living AND learning. I'll continue to feature Organic recipes, Paleo recipes, make it yourself home products and beauty products, etc. But it will also have posts on visiting museums and historic sites, since I love to do those things and share my experiences.

If you have an idea of something to call such a blog that can incorporate these interests beneath one umbrella--send it along. I'm putting together a basket of goodies for someone who sends me a winning name.

It's not that I see my current interests as clashing with the "Woman of Faith" title, but I recognize that women who lead ministries for other women could make better use of it. And I think it fails to describe the content I've been putting up.

So--as my readers, what do you think? Do you like the idea of my re-vamping what I'm doing with a new blog, new title, to better fit my healthy living and learning themes?

 I appreciate the feedback I've already received on this question, but please keep sending in your thoughts and ideas. What blog title would grab YOUR interest? What sort of content would make you check the blog often for new posts?

Regarding the sale of this blog: Interested parties please email me for details at Linore (at) LinoreBurkard (dot) com.
(*Veronica, please send me your complete mailing address via the above email so I can send out your prize!)

Okay, first of all, you didn't announce a winner. :)
Secondly, I think you should revamp your blog and gear it towards your most recent posts. There are a lot of blogs out there, some that I follow, that focus mainly on spiritual thoughts. Your blog has been a refreshing change, it mixes things up with my blog hopping.
As for a name, how about
"Healthy living with Linore"

God bless.

I think the idea of a revamp is a good one. The healthy living and learning themes are relevant and very interesting. I'm no help as to names.

Thanks, Chappie and Mary. I appreciate the feedback. As for the winner announcement, I wasn't finished with my post and was quite surprised when it arrived in my inbox! I was going to finish the post that evening, but I've been getting home so late-- and then in the morning I saw it posted! I'm not home right now and it's hard to work from my iPad, so I'll do the rest of the post tomorrow. Sorry for the delay!
