So the consensus is clear: a few changes need to be implemented.
I didn't only want to change the name of this blog, but also (and therefore) the web address. Being blessed with awesome foresight as I am, I managed to include 'brainpoo' not just once, but twice in the above link. Pretty silly really as changing this has been a bit of a pain.
And so a change of address has been necessary, and while I was at it I thought I'd re-work the blog framework to make it wider and more attractive.
Thus, I'm going to start a new blog page. Of course, all of the archives for Brainpoo have been included on the side-bar, just underneath the actual archives.
But what should the new name be?
, one of the first, was immediately eye-catching. However, as Ben has pointed out, the umlaut ü may cause problems.
Mike's imagination knows no end. Of his suggestions I particularly liked Not the Spanish Inquisition
. However, his Fundies anonymous
was my favourite, but I just had the feeling, funny as it is, that a few months down-the-line I would be wanting to change it again…
Eddies Cardinal Spin
I loved and it very nearly became my choice. However, I shall be introducing Cardinal Spin as a new 'team member' for my new blog. Any excuse for something silly.
Lastly are Ben's hilarious suggestions. Particularly tempting were Ex Fide in Fidem
, The Blog of the World's Cleverest Person
, Profound Musings of a Very Brainy Individual
, and especially, I Could Have Given This a Latin Name If I Wanted
. I've tried to incorporate something of one these in my new subtitle.
Then there were my ideas. Free Porn
was a bit of a cheap-shot but bound to increase the number of visitors. But I couldn't help but feel that was being a tad dishonest. In a similar spirit there was Terribly interesting Talk Sometimes (TITS)
, but that would just be another 'Brainpoo'. Given that my doctoral studies focus on Paul's Christology, I wondered if Chrisology
may work, but it just didn't feel right. As for Latin, there was Ignoramus et Ignorabimus
, but I always stumble on pronouncing the last word, so I forgot that.
But it is Anja, again, who suggested the one to be finally adopted. Her suggestion has one big advantage – she promises me days of early morning Chinese-burns if I don't use it. And that's pretty persuasive really.
Apart from that, I like it too!
The new name and the new link will follow in the next, and last post on Brainpoo.
Really! All my fussing over a name!
