Since many days I have been thinking that how unimaginative and lame is my blog name – “My Random Thoughts”. In a moment of one of the greatest imagination blocks, I had decided on this name for my blog where I wanted to pen down my thoughts.
As I started blogging and commenting actively, I came across so many blog with such smart and witty names like Nikhil’s “Mirrorcracked“, Suda’s “Life,Love and Logic“, Nita’s “A Wide Angle View of India“, Ishmeet’s “Dead End” and so on. Then, the realization that my blog name was nothing special started when I came across my blog namesake on Blogspot -“My Random Thoughts” by WIAN.
I started feeling that the creativity I show in my posts 😀 is not visible in my blog name. Where was all that creativity when I was thinking of a name?
Then, IHM pointed out in her post on blog names that she has four blogs called Random Thoughts in her blog roll and that she believes a reader would visit a blog just because the name was interesting.
According to this article,
any blog named, “My blog/journal/weblog with daily world news and thoughts from life!” will be a smash hit. If you’re interested, here are the top 10 words from the Technorati popular blogs:
I knew I had to do something about my blog name now. Dinu has asked his readers in his post that given a chance would they like to change the name of his blog? I don’t know about Dinu but I sure would like to change the name of my blog.
Though I have considered doing this several times, I stopped because I felt my readers have begun to associate “Reema” with “My Random Thoughts” and that changing a blog name may affect the Google Page Rank etc. (I am not sure whether it does or not)
But now the time has come. Enough is enough. I want to rename my blog with a cool, smart, witty name. So my dear readers and visitors, suggest a new name for this blog in your comments. Also let me know if you think I should go ahead with the idea or not by casting your vote in this poll :-
