Book Blogger Hop


Friday's Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books.

This week's question:
"Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?"

Yes! I think about this frequently and have debated changing the name many times. I feel like I never really chose my name for my blog....a few years ago when I decided I wanted to start a blog, my high school workers were trying to help me get started. As I was teaching a class, the one high school employee was busily trying to find a URL that had not been used. Being totally clueless, I just let her play around with it. All of a sudden, I had a url, but I also had a heading that said "Tina Says." And being such a newbie, I had no idea how to change it. And so time passed, and it stayed Tina Says. I have thought of a different name I would like better, and still have not quite decided if I should change it. Would readers know that my new site was still the same one, only with a new name? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

That's a tough question. I have to say I prefer when blogs I read keep the name they have. I follow one blog that change the name a few times and it completely confused me. I actually like Tina Says... but if you're set on changing it, I'm sure I'd get used to it. :-) Just be sure to make a big deal of it so people realize what's happening!

What's in a name? Everything! A name is a label, a description and a promise. I'm very happy with mine - "Howard Sherman, Implementor" but it was quite a journey to get there.

Hop on over to my blog and find out why - http://www.howardsherman.net

I quite like Tina Says, simple and to the point. I also like when bloggers names are in the title.

Here is my response.

Hello! I found you through the hop!
For me, I won’t change my blog name. For me, the blog name holds the identity of the blog and the blogger. I’ve been blogging for more than a year now. I’m used to it.

Here’s my post: http://shusky20.blogspot.com/2011/02/book-blogger-hop-15.html

I’d like to invite you over to my blog as I share the love with YA giveaways! They end on Feb. 28. I hope you drop by!
Thank you and have a nice weekend!

I like the name of the blog. Although the major downer to renaming a blog is going around any and all account linked to the blog and changing them as well. Well Just hopping thru, Now I am going to go check out the rest of your blog. ;).
