A few weeks ago, I started a contest to name my blog. When I first created my blog, naming it didn’t seem important because the actual name doesn’t show anywhere on the site once you open it. However, when posting blog entries to social networking sites, the blog name displays prominently — so it suddenly became important to come up with a suitable title.
Literary Latte. This entry was a close second because of my outstanding and often overwhelming love of coffee and literature. However, as my business, blogs, and life morph into the scary, haunted, and spooky type stuff for half of every year, I felt this title was too narrow to describe all the topics I’ll cover in my blog.
Inked in Java. Loved this one, nearly chose it, too.
Ready… Set… Write. Very creative and, again, another of my top choices. Loved this one.
In the end, I chose “More than 10,000 Monkeys Can Handle” for two reasons: 1. It epitomizes what a circus I can be at times, and 2. It’s that super elusive, strangely intriguing title that makes people click on it just to see what it’s all about. It’s not too revealing, and it’s quirky enough to make some bloggers click on it to find out what it means.
Congratulations, David Luter! I’ll be awaiting a text to learn which of my Chicken Soup titles you’d like as your winning prize. 🙂
