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 – 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?

I will put together a special custom gift basket – for fellow wino’s of course it will have Princess Nagger wine in it:

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:

  1. I like “Mojo’s Nemesis”
    and Secretia’s suggestion, “Stacy Unwrapped”.

    or my entries would be:
    “Princess Nagger’s Nemesis”;
    “Stacy’s Ruminations”;
    “Stacy Wine’s About It”;
    “Stacy’s Still”;
    “Venting In The Hood”.

  2. “From The Kingdom Of Princess Nagger”
    “Whine And Musings From Princess Nagger’s Mommy”
    “Wines and Times of the Queen”
    “Another Day With Stacy”
    “Reigning Wtih The Queen of Wine”
    I’m not good at this, but I know you’ll come up with something great. If I really think of something, I’ll post another comment.

  3. What a great idea! I am terrible at names, so I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Love those wine bottle labels!

  4. Looking at your post I thought you could be subtle and use something like:

    Stacy’s Private Reserve

    It doesn’t have to refer to wine proper, but it does offer a unique blend of you.

    Gook luck on kicking Mojo’s butt.

  6. Selecting a blog name is so challenging! I came up with The Inquisitive Mom after naming my blog and was so glad to discover that you can change the URL name in blogger! These are probably silly, but since you’re firing your mojo:
    Searching for My Muse
    Or, after reading your “About Me”
    The Eclectic Life or An Eclectic Life
    Sassy Stacy
    Making Wine out of Sour Grapes

    Good luck!

    .-= Becca would like you to read ..Winners!!! =-.

  9. Only kidding about naming your blog Bob.

    How about:

    “Pie in the Sky”
    “Poetic License”
    “All That Glitters is Not Gold”
    “He Who Pays the Piper Calls the Tune”
    “He Who Laughs Last Laughs Longest”
    “Separate the Sheep From the Goats”
    “It’s Not Over Until the Fat Lady Sings”
    “Pearls Before Swine”

    Okay. I could go on, but I sure cracked myself up with these suggestions! I hope they make you smile, too.

    The Princess Diaries

    Stacy and the Princess

    Stacy’s Saucy Sayings

    Princess Nager and her Court

    Put A Cork In It

    Stacy’s Secret Sauce

    The Corker Princess

    Stacy Uncorked

    Okay that’s all I got for now. 🙂

  16. I like Mojo’s Nemesis myself. But then again I have trouble with names and titles, we should come up with a random blog name generator.
