What are you thinking about today?
If you happen to be thinking about our new blog name–Love Isn’t Enough–I want to let you know that Carmen and I hear you. We know that some folks are concerned that parents seeking resources may not be able to find us or that the name signals a change in focus to only international/transracial adoption or that it reflects a watering down of our site’s mission or message.
We want to assure you that these things aren’t true. But we also realize that our community here is full of really smart and thoughtful people, and we would be smart to listen to your concerns. What you think is important to us. We also know that change is hard. Several of you have mentioned how perfect Racialicious is as a name for our sister blog, but Carmen tells me when that name was debuted, many people hated it…vehemently.
We just ask everyone to give the new name a little time. Pay attention to the content and the community. We think you’ll find that it only improves, and we will remain as committed to anti-racism parenting as we always were. No watering down here. We promise. Meanwhile, we’ll be paying attention to the traffic here, making sure that new readers can find us and that those readers follow our community guidelines and that we continue to offer content for anti-racist parents of all colors.
Give it time. We promise to reconsider the new name and whether it is serving us well in the new year.
