Did anyone watch “Girlicious” out there? Anyone at all? Because I watched every single episode, without fail. I liked it, I am not gonna lie. I just feel like I have to confess that. I don’t know much about what defines a sin, but liking Girlicious has to rate on that scale somewhere. Ok, now I can move on.
Here’s what I’m thinking. Should I change the name of my blog? I am feeling an itch to do it and on many levels, I don’t like to itch. I also want to change how it looks. It’s time for a new outfit, is what I keep thinking. Maybe. I can’t decide.
Here’s the thing. I’ve been writing under this blog shingle for a while now (jeez louise, it’s been over two years!), and when I started it, I just did what I typically do with this blog. I blurted it all out. Including the name. I didn’t think, I just did. Live in the now, man. That’s what I did. Only, you know why I named it what I named it? It was just because I couldn’t think of anything else. And you know, is this blog really librarian-ish enough? Or pop culture-ish enough? Or am I just engaging in false advertising? I don’t know. It was either that or call it…what? I didn’t have any ideas. I still don’t, really.
The other thing is, I’m not the only blogger out there who’s calling herself the pop culture librarian. There are others. I am not going to say that they are all people who want to emulate yours truly because the name is really too generic to claim ownership, you know? And besides, who knows? There was probably a pop culture librarian before me too so I can’t bitch about the people who come after me. It’s like, if you’re naming your kid John, you can’t get mad at other people for naming their kids John too. If you wanted something original, then name your kid Moon Unit or Dweezil or something.
And besides, I have all this fear that if I change my blog name, then all of a sudden people will be incapacitated and not update their readers and links and all such like and I will suddenly lose touch with all my bloggie friends out there. I’m not calling you all a bunch of lazy slobs or anything, but my abandonment issues can get the best of me in almost any situation.
I don’t know. I guess since I have no ideas about what to rename myself, then I should just shut up about it. The blog re-design though. I could get behind that I suppose. But again. Do I have any ideas of what I want this thing to look like? Nope. I just want it to be different, and something I like, and enough with this crap blogger template. (Hi Blogger company! Heart you!) Any of you want to give me some suggestions? What do you think a blog like mine should look like? I seriously do have the itch for changing this up, and I need some blog itch ointment, you know what I’m saying?
That was a totally disgusting metaphor.
Shutting up now,
