Picking a Blog Name, Part Two

After officially abandoning the blog title Don’t Read This, You’ll Only Encourage Him! I did what any creative guy would do: polled my Facebook friends for steal-able ideas, explaining that I needed a name which represented more than one trait.

The minute my buddy Barb came up with Mitchellaneous, virtually all of my friends stopped suggesting other titles and threw in with her. That was it (I thought)! However, since Mitchellaneous wasn’t as topically telling as, say, Kenny’s World of Ferrets, I decided to add a subtitle that would indicate that the site featured stories, humor, and (sometimes) a meaningful message.

I happily began the process of acquiring my URL, but was soon disappointed to learn that the name “Mitchellaneous” had been taken.  Furthermore, it was in use (though, I pray, it will not be by the time you read this) by a purveyor of gross perversions, including graphic bestiality and child pornography!  Yes, I alerted WordPress.

And so I reluctantly abandoned Mitchellaneous as a moniker, but as an homage re-labeled my Miscellaneous Category “Mitchellaneous.” Then, disappointed and a little daunted, I went back to the drawing board. What name could I give my blog that was both unique and—new concern—safe? Well…

There was one name that was literally staring me in the face every time I logged on to Facebook or Twitter, or handed my wallet to a policeman (“No, officer, I’m certain the light was just a very orangey yellow”).

The epic multi-part adventure continues in:

    Reblogged this on Mitch Teemley and commented:

    In honor of the one year anniversary of my blog, I’m narcissistically (say that with mashed potatoes in your mouth) re-blogging this original all-about-me series. Aren’t you lucky?

    You’re right, Godlike. It is hard to say with mashed potatoes in your mouth. That would look great on a business card. Or introducing you to give a speech…and now, please give a big round of applause to Mr. Little Loaf of Bread. 🙂
