Name My Blog Contest!!!


Help Name My Blog!!!

I’ve been writing this blog fairly regularly for more than a year now, and I’ve shared a host of thoughts, feelings and opinions regarding a range of topical areas.  But now, I need your help….

The title of this blog is EXTREMELY clunky – “Comments and Questions of Faith, Family, Finance and Fitness” (yuck!)

I intentionally made the title so unwielding, after I read an article by blogging guru Chris Brogan who stressed the need to, “…write about what you like and include as much of what you like in your blog’s title…” – his rationale at the time was that an overstuffed blog title would help people find it when they typed words in various Internet search engines.

With all due respect to Mr. Brogan, I think it’s time for a grown-up title to help tighten the focus and purpose of this blog.

So, please reply with your suggested blog title in the comment section here or on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/tor.constantino) for the next seven days.  If yours is selected, I’ll send you a $25 gift card to Amazon and a free copy of my new book due later this fall.

Here are the blog title criteria:
  1. The title MUST be G-rated;
  2. It should complement the topics I typically write about: Family, Faith, Fitness, and Finance;
  3. You can submit as many suggested titles as you’d like.
Once a winner is selected they’ll be ceremoniously honored befitting their accomplishment – meaning I’ll write a quick blurb or somethin’ about ‘em.

Be part of hisTORy and please help me name my blog!!!!

  6. I'd keep it simple for success and just give it your name or name it for the URL, "Torconsblog."

  7. I think you need a title AND a subtitle. The title I was going to suggest has already been taken...

  9. @Ilana, I'm speechless (which as you know is a difficult state to induce)! I'm grateful for all of the thoughtful suggestions, and humbled that you engaged the "brain trust." I think we found a winner in this list...I'll send more offline. My sincerest thanks again!
