I am thinking about the redesign of this site a little bit, and I thought I’d use my lunch break to take a poll. I don’t think the title is quite right. Let me explain why, list the options I’ve come up with, and then see what everyone thinks.
“The Writing Catalog” is not a bad title, and it’s served me well so far, but it’s not a good title for search engine listing, and it doesn’t exactly scream, “read me!” I’m not changing the focus of the blog, nor the tagline, but I am considering a few options for a different title, and I only want to change it once, if at all. Here are some things I could do:
1. Use my name in the title somehow. I have a unique name, and I am listed all over the web as Gene’O.
2. Change the word “Catalog” to something else, but keep writing in the title.
3. Pick another writing-related title, use entirely different words and make it more catchy.
4. Find just the right literary reference and use a title that plays on that reference.
Those are all I can come up with. So, here’s the poll if you would like to vote.
