I am thinking of changing the name of this blog. But before I make a decision like that I would appreciate some feedback from you. Yes you. Even if you who don’t normally comment. Why? Because it is helpful to know what the names say to you. Thinking wise. Feeling wise. To see if I am communicating what I would like to be communicating. Because it is not always easy to gauge that from hit counts alone.
So, here goes. What I am looking for is something that:
- Reflects what people can expect to find on this blog
- Obviously christian
- Invites curiosity, stands out (and possibly conflicts with Christian stereotypes)
- Is search engine friendly (noting that “Christian Art” is a keyword for me)
- Easy to remember
- Easy to work into sentences
- Does not box me in writing wise
It seems to me that the existing name, “Glocal Christianity”, meets some of this criteria. But to me it sounds too clunky and academic. Do you agree? Or do you think I should keep it? Has it grown on any of you?
Here are some alternatives I have thought of:
- Curious Christian
- Living Christianity
- Dissident Disciple
- Matt Stone (part of me wonders if I should dispense with a descriptive name altogether)
Which do you prefer? My preference at this point is for “Curious Christian”. It seems to meet most of the criteria, except its probably too generic for search engines to pick up on. Mind you, renaming my art pages as “Curious Christian Art” could work. Anyway, what I want to know is, does it work for you? Does it make you cringe? Are you indifferent? Is it ok, good or great? Can you think of a name I haven’t thought of?
Other names I thought of but aren’t as keen on are: Mosaic Christian, Anarchobaptist. Other keywords I thought of incorporating were Jesus and Icon and Angel, but I couldn’t think of how I could make that work. Agree?
But beyond all that. If someone asked you describe this site, what would you say? That’s what I really want to know.
