Good Saturday morning fellow bloggers, readers, friends and foes,
I have an announcement.
There is a light at the end of the baptist tunnel. In May the hub’s gig as head of the finance committee will be up and in mid-June he will finish teaching a Sunday morning class on finances. And then yee-haw we will be out the door, down the street, skipping hand in hand toward our destiny. It’s a beautiful thought.
“I’ll have to change the name of my blog,” I mused, as I minced toppings for our hot dogs. Yep, we had hot dogs last night. I made a REALLY really delicious dinner Thursday night and you just don’t get two fabulous dinners in a row around here anymore. A girl’s gotta’ rest. Plus, I took my sister out for lunch for her birthday so, you know, no time to prep.
Anyway, as I was musing the hub asked, “Why?”
“I’ll no longer be a reluctant baptist.”
Music drifted melodically from his mouth to my ears: “You already are no longer a baptist. Neither am I, at this point I’m just an independent contractor.”
Nothing against baptists, I just miss Jesus.
Why put off until tomorrow (or mid-June) what you can do today?
One reason: The wisdom and experience of my fellow bloggers. So fellow, bloggers, have any of you changed the name of your blog 9 months in? What do I need to consider? Talk fast, though, ‘cuz tomorrow is tomorrow.
I’ll keep my gravatar image the same for awhile so you will recognize me when I like/comment on your posts.
Coming up with a new name has been TOUGH! I’ve put a WHOLE NIGHT’S thought into it. My daughter suggested, “The Happy Presbyterian.”
“The Imperfect Presbyterian” would be more accurate. Except it completely contradicts my rants against denominationalism. PLUS, one visit to an evangelical presbyterian church does not a presbyterian make.
I flew “Kinda’ Christian” up the flag pole but no one saluted. “Get it?,” I asked, “I blog about God and the church a lot, but not always.”
An emphatic, “NO!” from my daughter.
She’s right – people would keep trying to save me.
After wracking my brain for a few more hours, I finally came up with a name. Which will probably be in place tomorrow. But if any of you wordsmiths are moved to do so, suggest away. There’s still time. (Just please don’t feel hurt if I decide to go with mine.)
And do NOT forget the sage advice.
And have a glorious day! (It’s mostly cloudy and 22 degrees here, but my heart is sunny and warm.)
