Those of you who have been reading along for awhile have probably noticed that for the past couple of months I’ve pretty much been phoning it in. Not only here at my own blog, but in my sporadic and random visits to you wonderful people in the blogosphere. My mojo seems to be in hiding. Probably amongst all the dust bunnies under the bed, or the mess that claimed my dining room. I’ve decided to fire my mojo and hire its nemesis instead, whatever that may be.
One of the things that has been bugging me for a year now is my blog name. Who cares about Stacy and her Random Thoughts? It’s time for a change. No, I’m not quitting, but I definitely want to make some changes to accommodate mojo’s nemesis.
This is where I can use your help.
And this is where it’s going to get fun – at least I hope so.
At this moment I’m turning this post into a contest. With prizes. You know, to motivate your creativity.
It’s now known as the “Rename Stacy’s Blog Contest and Giveaway”.
So basically, what I would like you to do is leave a comment with your suggestion of a unique name for my blog. Think outside the box (or don’t) and don’t worry that it might sound lame in your head, because I bet I’ll like it. So many of you have cool and unique names for your blogs – when I started this, I was part of a group of ‘Save Journeyman’ fans and wasn’t planning on having the blogging bug bite me. Now it’s biting me in the ass.
So to speak.
Maybe if I have a fun or inspiring name I’ll find my mojo. Or at least give mojo’s nemesis a fighting chance.
Help me get my mojo back (or snagging its nemesis) by helping me rename my blog.
The winning name will not be chosen by random.org – I will be picking out the one that I think fits me and my blog best. If I end up with several top picks and can’t decide, I’ll add a poll to my blog and let my readers make the final decision.
Just leave a comment – no hoops to jump through, no extra work on your part. Are you up for the challenge?
Oh, you want to know what’s in it for you?
Or maybe a bottle of the latest batch of Licor del Café (you can choose your preference):
Amongst other things. Fun things. I’ll come up with something creative. For those that don’t like or don’t drink wine or alcohol, I’ll make something special just for you. Either way it will be a surprise. In addition to that, the person that comes up with the winning name will get their blog button featured on my main page – if you don’t have a button, I’ll make you one. It’s a win/win.
So what do you say? Help a girl out, please?
This contest is open to everyone, but only U.S. Residents are eligible for the gift basket’o’goodies. If any of my cool bloggy friends from Canada or across the pond turn in the winning name, I’ll come up with something cool that doesn’t require that I try to send it through snail mail.
This contest will close at Midnight on April 25th and I’ll post an update on April 26th – or the winner, whichever the case may be.
Let the games begin!
Edited to add: You can enter and offer up as many name ideas as you want. There is no limit! (except maybe my brain at the moment).
Oh, and Pooba? Here’s a preview of the Apple Wine label you’re anxiously waiting for:
