When I decided to reveal my name, I thought, you know, why not make it a little more fun? Why not let everybody look forward to it by saying I'd reveal it at 150 friends? I mean, come on, that's not that much farther, right?
Truth be told, I thought about ready to die with excitement that I was just like, "LET'S GET TO 150 ALREADY SO I CAN JUST SAY!!!!!!!!!"
Yeah, I was excited.
I still am excited.
In fact, I'm ecstatic. =D
(I'm just trying to hide it by not using all caps [like I so wish] and trying to sound sane. I still sound sane, right? Because I'm trying. Unbelievably hard!)
This has been something that I have been looking forward to ever since I announced it. Ever since I got my new blog name, the new blog design, and started thinking of designers for my blog design giveaway. (I'm going to work on that tomorrow. Don't fear, fair heart--it will happen!!!)
OH MY GOSH I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, I finally unleashed myself for a bit. :D
Anyway, I suppose I should really tell. I'm not sure how. I wish I could do it in an amazingly dramatic way, you know? Do it in a way that would build up your tension so much that you'd feel like you're ready to explode.
Of course, I don't want anybody to explode, so let's do this...
How about I just be blunt?
Oh, nah, that's no fun at all!!
(And please, don't skip down to where I say my name. I know it's tempting and, personally, I wouldn't listen to myself and just go, but please, I'm begging you, for the sake of me.)
So let's do it this way.
I'll be slightly poetic.
AT A TIME LIKE THIS?!?!
Yes, I'm sorry, but I will.
Let's go then!!!!!!!!!
ONWARD, SOLDIERS. >>

Yep, that's my name; Anna. It's so weird, I've never written that name in a blog post as my own, or anywhere on blogger, for that matter. Anna. Ah, how I love to see it on the page! (err, computer screen...) I love my name so much. You might not, but that's OK. For me, my name is beautiful and feminine. I love it.
My name is Anna.
Welcome to my blog.

Now, now, now. You didn't think I was going to let you off that easily, did you? Oh, certainly not! I would have forgotten something!
The new blog name? You know?
I believe I explained the story here.
And now it comes down to...
WHAT ON EARTH IS STORYTELLER OF WESTON COUNTY NOW GOING TO BE?!?!
Well, I will skip the dramatics and tell you simply.
This blog's name is going to be Hero.
How on earth did I come up with this name? (first off, read the post in the link above)
Well, that's how. And I realized that it's a really meaningful name. I believe that God gave it to me. Sometimes I find this one question, over and over, popping up to me... how is that being a Hero? Most of the time when that question comes, I'm not being a hero. And I realize, I want to be a Hero. A Hero for other people. The Hero that God wants me to be.
On Willow's pinterest (<link), there's a board called "I Still Believe in Heroes." It's an Avengers board. (GO CAPTAIN AMERICA!!! Oh, sorry....) That really struck me... yes, there are still heroes out there. If we are willing for God to make us into ones. Each and every Christian--every person, for that matter--as the potential to become a "Hero". God doesn't make "villains"; we choose to be those. He creates us to be Heroes; but will we be?
So this is it.
And this is Hero.
Welcome to Anna at Hero.
God bless all you guys.
Be a Hero
