Why all the blog name changes?

From Tyra Banks' Twitter Feed


I started this blog with the intentions of writing self-directed articles about my interests.  I was having difficulty thinking of a unique name to showcase what I am about.

Finally, when I was writing the piece about my daughter I realized, "Hey!  I want to strive to be an imperfectionist!"  So I thought I found the perfect blog names and URL, unfortunately - the URL was already taken, so I had to go through a series of names before I cam up with what is now the title of my blog.

Why imperfect?  Tyra Banks says it best, "Perfect is boring."  Perfectionism has plagued me my whole life, and I see it in my daughter as well; but then I realized, what I truly love about my life and everything around me are those imperfections.  The little flaws that make each of us our own unique person.  Do I still struggle with perfectionism?  Sure!  But I try to not let it hold me back as it has done in the past.

.... and out of those thoughts, came my blog name.  I apologize for any confusion - but I will be sticking with this for a while.
