New name, new address, new home

I decided to change the address of my blog. From arwa13.wordpress.com to strawberryfields.blog. (Yes, it’s the first time I’m using and paying for another plan on wordpress.com).

I’ve been blogging on WordPress for more than ten years, and I’m the most satisfied with this platform. It provides easy blogging, and the blogs/sites look professional and modern. I always enjoy using WordPress and like to explore every feature it provides.

Last month I made a decision that I’m going to upgrade my account to the paid personal plan. My weblog is personal, and I don’t think it should change. I share my personal experience, thoughts and writing. I wanted to boost my blog and give it a more fancy address which includes a domain.

I spent a month thinking about a new domain for the website. And I knew I couldn’t be creative enough to come up with a very unique and creative name, so I looked at titles of my favorite old songs. And it wasn’t easy, and it was nearly impossible to find something that would look like a name of a blog, until I decided that the name Strawberry Fields would sound so poetic and simple at the same time.

Strawberry Fields Forever is a song by one of my favorite all time musical bands in the whole world, and maybe I shouldn’t have used it as a title of my blog, but I feel that my blog itself is a fields of Strawberry.

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It’s getting hard to be someone
But it all works out

  1. Hi Arwa, I think a blog makeover is a good idea. Love the cover photo. I’ve done it before, and it’s refreshing and renewing at the same time. I’m sure it will inspire you to write and blog this year. I love the title and where it was derived from, too. The Beatles are iconic and always will be. I wish you all the best for this year.

    • Thank you so much Lauren.
      The term Strawberry Fields holds different connotations to different ideas and concepts.
      When I watched the film “Across the Universe” and they were singing/playing the son Strawberry Fields, they had the picture of the post (the title picture of this post) in the background as a work of art. And it made me see that Strawberry Fields is a bloody war field. And it hurts. It reminds me of the on-going war happening in my area.
      And I also found that there was a documentary movie about Strawberry Fields in Gaza https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strawberry_Fields_(2006_film) (it’s not about war and massacre, but about the Strawberry Fields there).
      And I love Strawberries, in general.
      Thank you so much for stopping by and reading. I really appreciate that.
      I wish you a very good year 🙂

      • You’re right, it does hold different meanings. I saw that movie, too, but I don’t see that when I look at the cover. I think I had the same feeling as you did. I’ll check out the link you included, too. Have a good day! 🙂
