About 6 months ago I had the bright idea of changing the name of this blog to Ink, Bits, & Pixels.
I like the name and I thought that it better described what I wanted to cover, but I can’t actually get anyone to use it. Instead, time and again I see people referring to my work by the old name.
Call it what you will (inertia, cachet, ingrained behavior, ?) the old name had too much weight for me to change.
Do you know how in January you continue to write or type the previous year? Picture that, but with a name that has been around for 5 years. That’s what has kept happening over the past 6 months, and today I am throwing in the towel.
This blog is now The Digital Reader again.
P.S. I think my biggest mistake was in not building a new site with a new name and then moving there. That could have provided the break needed to get everyone to use the new name.
P.P.S. While we’re on the topic of names, I’m switching back this Thursday night because I also just revived and started setting up a Tumblog for The Digital Reader (I’m on 4 social networks now – 5, counting Myspace).
P.P.P.S. And as for you folks who dropped the Oxford comma from Ink, Bits, & Pixels, I have made a list and handed it over to The Grammar Nazis. They will be arriving shortly.
