Help Me Think Up a New Title for My Blog

Living Retired in Western New York State doesn't really describe what this blog is all about any more.  Sharon, on Life with Jack and Jill inspired me to get off my duff and at least rename the thing.  Trouble is, I can't think of any title that sounds good.  Wandering Western New York is about as close as I can get.  So, I thought I'd throw it open to you all.  What are your ideas for a new title?

When I think of you and all you post about these come to mind:

Wildlife out my Window

Nurturing Nature

Menagerie Muse

Wildlife Wandering....Wondering

That's all for now :)

"Walk with me"
"All the little pretty things"

I love Lisa's suggestion for 'Wildlife out my Window'.

In trying to come up with a new name I'd want to decide what it is I want others to think my blog is about and find a name to suit that. So, do you want the focus to be your hikes and visits to wonderful places in the area, the wildlife in your yard... elsewhere? Perhaps the focus is on what makes you happy?
I was originally drawn to your blog by the "Western New York" as I grew up there. How important is that locale as part of your title? Maybe it might help to list some words that you feel summarize your blog... ie my blog in three words... or my blog in 5 words...
Finally, what blog titles attract you? Do you like clever plays on words? Do you like short zippy titles? What draws you to a blog?

So... I'm no help in coming up with ideas, but maybe a question I have posed will resonate with you and help you find what you are looking for!

Sharon said...

Totally clueless.... me, not the name of your blog! I hope you come up with something, but (and I know so well) take your time, it's going to be part of you for a while :-)

I will keep thinking about it! (Hopefully something better than my first thought - Louise in the Breeze - LOL!)

Louise said...

I don't know, Sharon, there are many days when I think that "Totally Clueless" just might fit.

Life with Louise...that way it is all about you and what you are doing! :)

Let's see...when I think of you, I think of all the horses you save, your cats, the view from your window, walks, the lake, flowers...basically, you have a great appreciation and love for all living things.

Helping Hands
Taking Care of Business
My World
Making the Most of Every Day
Paying it Forward
Once Upon a Time...
The Path I Have Chosen

I'll have to think about this.

I wish I could help, but I'm hopeless. I thought of "the view out my window" but that's only one aspect of your blog.

Consider my blog.

I can't tell you the number of times I've had someone leave me a comment and ask why. I live in a land-locked state nowhere near any orcas....laughing or otherwise. lol!

A person would have to go all the way back to my very first post, over 4 years ago, to find the answer to their question. :)

since I have just recently started reading your blog, I'm not familiar enough with you to come up with a name, but the good thing is even if you come up with a title and then it doesn't work, you can always change it. I am always intrigued by the clever names people name their blogs; it usually gets my attention to want to check out their blog.

good luck coming up with a name if you decide to change it!

betty

????? still thinking??????

Does that mean you are going back to work? Tee hee.

I've changed the title on one of my blogs several times, so I have no advice. Just make sure it is something you can live with!

"Life with Louise"

Lots of suggestions! The View from Here? Through My Window? Whatever you decide on, I'm sure your blog will continue to entertain and enlighten.

Vicki Lane said...

Wow -- lots of good suggestions. I like WALK WITH ME.

I'm not fond of my blog's title either but it matches my website so I leave it as is.
