Changing Usernames

Beautiful Mess - Social Media Username Change


Back in August, I started really thinking about changing my usernames on social media. Mainly just for my “big 3″… Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. My usernames there were similar, but not exactly the same. Pinterest and Twitter were julie524, while Instagram was 524julie. So even though I was thinking about it, I was worried about all of my previous posts, tweets, followers, etc not being there once my username switched over. Even after finding out everything would still be there, I still stalled at it for some reason.

Well, a few days ago I finally decided it was time, made “announcements” on Twitter and Instagram and made the official change yesterday evening. I don’t think it took even 10 minutes to make the 3 name changes. I have no idea what I was so worried about.

If you’re thinking of changing your usernames, these articles (Twitter and Instagram) helped with reminding me how to make the changes and where to remember to make updates to.

My new usernames are as follows:
(only the top row were actually changed)

Twitter, Instagram, Periscope & Pinterest: @jsbyjulie
Facebook: julie.waters and @jsbyjulie
Youtube and Tumblr: julie524
Google+: JulieWaters524

*I’ve edited this post with my new usernames, which were switched around September 2017.
