Reason behind your Blog Title.
All of us have very unique and interesting titles for our blogs. But what inspired you to keep the name to what it currently is.
Why "My musings" "my yatra diary" "a light hearted talk" "narayankripa" " just like that" "rumbaHo" "hardwarebbq" "cricket wise" " wintechgeek" "India backpacker" "craptivate" "cybernag" "pure-love" and so on..
Share the story behind your blog title. Also, just for fun, if you could rename your blog, what would it be called?
Reason: added more blogs :)
Hey Abhi, first of all, I am happy you remember my blog's name :). Thanks Man.
Here is the story behind it, In Apr last week i thought of creating a blog where i can share tips and tricks related to windows Operating system which others can read.. As a blog title i thought of using my nick name,but moreover i wanted not to use my name as domain.
WinTechGeek, Since it 's gonna be completly windows blog, so windows word was fixed, i like the word geek myself so wanted to include it as well in domain. So both words made "windowsGeek". Since windows word is copyright of microsoft, that domain was not gonna survieve much.
A graphics designer freind from indonesia suggested me to include the word Tech in the domain name as it;s good for adsense. By GOd at that time I had no idea what this adsense is, i though she is talking about comoun sense :), Ab ladki se puchna accha nahi lagta yaar so didn't asked her abut it :P. So included the word tech as well. Finaly it became WinTechGeek.
I am happy with the title, Duno what will be the name if i want to rename it sometime. What's your story Be the geek ?
thats a very interesting story and wintechgeek is an excellent name for a site.
about Be the geek, its just a random phrase that occurred to me while thinking for a suitable name for a tech blog, last year. I also wanted my blogger url to be "bethegeek" but had to settle for bthegeek. I hope it becomes as huge as howtogeek some day :P
THAT WAS A NICE STORY BEYOND YOUR BLOG NAME WINTECHGEEK.
mY BLOG name is Readitt. because i came up with a concept of emagazine, so i thought of a name which i s ahort and simple , i tried for like it,, not avialable..

Haha, thats great. Did you think of this name? and what about your url? :)
from Auckland, NZ now but born and brought up in Mumbai
1 year ago
Nice name. Made me laugh. Your posts are interesting too. I wouldn't call them all "crap"
if u see, marrriage book has a lot of potentials. keep up the good work..
Musings is one of the best blogs we have here on indi. It can be entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time.
about marriagebook, I definitely agree with subhash, it has great potential, PL ji.
abhi & subhas ji, given new look to my marriagebook site,
new look rocks PL jee, u have a registration option right ? Where users can register for your blog . How about adding a button which will allow visitors to register using a single click using their existing facebook account ? Wanna add it ? and also there is much more possibility if you want others to share some stuff on marrigaebook
Why simply share teh happiness of your marriage life with others! The world can't see others being happy :-)
What is the subject matter of marriagebook? Do post the url if it already exists.
I went through the contents. It is very good and I agree with Abhi too that you should revive it.
The name of my blog reflects my personality according to my family cybernag (http://cybernag.in) You can read the posts and decide for yourself if it is apt.
If I were to rename it , it would be The Cybernag Returns
Yup, the title suits completely . "Cybernag returns" Even more awesome :)
You are saying it as if you have been sufficiently nagged on my blog Thanks for validating my choice of blog title!
That a good explanation but till today I thought that the wise used in your blog's title meant the same wise used in length wise, breathwise
Hey Abhi, thanks for mentioning my blog name(or rather mentioning the name of the tamer of the two blogs :))
My reason for naming my blog name like so is the same reason that every fellow Mallu would tell u...
Ha, I like both of your blogs, (and their titles too :P) i was unsure of how others would find it. :)
absolutely hilarious pair of names. Separated, they are average, but together... ;o)
Your blog's title can infact ebcome a topic for a group discussion on IndiBlogger,,, :-)
No, nothing concerning me, or my, or, er, anyone's virginity was my reason to name my blog, The Virgin Blog. The title just originated from a set of silly conversations between me, and a very close friend of mine, nothing ****ed up, or "virgin" about it. Really!
india backpacker, is aimed at promoting indian tourist destinations. The idea occured to me from the term backpacker, which was interesting and adventurous. I have met some foreigners who pitch their tent literally for 3 months either in Goa, Om beach, Hampi and other destinations where they find living is comfortable and cheap. I only hope it stays that way for domestic tourists too. Even though we don t have the habit of taking long vacations, i am sure one day we will get used to a fortnight long vacation instead of weekends and extended holidays. Let me now pack my bag for my next vacation Lol
only some are that lucky to enjoy full toosh vacations. foreigners have dat luxury. our mentality revolves around family obligations, and atlast feel proud ,that's all.
A very interesting blog, Shankar. Loved the articles and the template as well.
Your blog name and the reason looks similar to mine.. :-) and the template is also good. I tried using such a modified wordpress template in the past but wasn't successful in extracting what I required.
Thanks for the shout out, abhi
Whenever I travelled to a particular destination, I always had this habit of collecting visiting cards and maintaining records of good places to eat, numbers and address of of hotels that I found good, in my personal travel diary so that it would help me later. This combined with my love to travel to pilgrimage places inspired me with the name - My Yatra Diary (http://myyatradiary.blogspot.com/) - a collection of my travelogues in an online diary to help fellow travellers and also myself Rename -
This particular name has stuck with me for so long now, I really cant think of any other
Arti, Good to know that your maintainence of diary has prompted you to brand your blog as My Yatra Diary
One of the many good points of your blog is your personal touch which you add to all your posts.
If I am travelling to a new place, I would happily take opinions from a person who has already been there before, rather than a commercial website who recommends places because it has been paid to do so.
Happy blogging :)
It's your politeness. Everybody has to learn something from your blog.....whichever may be the sub. the simplicity in template and language. But complete info + pics.....everything just perfect.
I now underastnd the significance of teh word diary in your blog name. A diary can be inspiration for a number fo blog posts and blogs,
This particular name has stuck with me for so long now, I really cant think of any other
i can think about another name fr ur blog., that's myyartadiary.com :P
@ Abhi: kya baat hai.. really an interesting discussion :)
@ Pramodji the new look of Marriage book is just superlicious :) :)
Now about my blog name.. actually when I started blogging about a year ago.. i just had a simple name that is my name :) :)...but when I started venturing out I saw people had these unique names which very well related to their contents. And then the great me also wanted to do the same, so I started to catagorise my content, but I really tried very very hard and then realised my blog was like a mixed pickle... search for anything and you will get it there.... Tab jaakar janma.......SuKupedia......thats my blog(inspired by my name Sunita Kurup) ... and the description is ... I See, I Feel, I Say :) :) :).....
I would never change my blog name...but just incase...maybe.. then it would be....Khicdi :) :) :)
SuKuPedia is indeed a very creative name, Sunita. hmmm, maybe I should rename my blog to AbhiPedia....wait!! did I say that aloud? :)
sunita ji, thanks a ton for the support. you have been awarded surprize gift and banner i created myself and added with link to your site. you can check out.
I began blogging soon after becoming a mother for the first time and I wanted a title that captured the joy and the wonder of motherhood as wellas the changes that it brings along, and that's the thought behind ' http://hellomommyhood.blogspot.com/
Maybe when my daughter grows older and I have to put an end to mommy blogging, I'll think of a new name for the blog! I also write about other stuff: writing, books, non mommy stuff that goes on in my life..so it will have to capture all of that.
Great blog you have there, Manasi. While going through your blog, I am sure a lot of new-moms could relate to it and say "Oh yes! How true is that! "
Thanks abhi, for sharing the name of my blog. Really great topic. It's nice to read stories of all bloggers.
If I honestly tell the story, I was in search of true spiritual knowledge. and had an ego that I can get it my own by reading books. But I really got what I am writing by the grace of my Sadgurudeva, Spiritual master H. H. Shri Narayankaka Maharaj. So I know, I am nothing....nothing. This is the first name came in my mind - Gurukripa. I couldn't make this url. So the name of my Sadguru and the god - narayankripa. This word will protect me from the ego. He is 85 yrs old and what a grace! He has visited my blog too.
I will never change the name, but in case (just for fun) I have to, it will be Just like that... hehe LOL
arrey bhai , aisa nahi hai, aapko bacha raha tha,
I saw subhas ji getting ready with a 9mm webely scott pistol.
When I rekindled my blog I was scratching my brains for a suitable title. It was mid day at office, I was sleepy having sat up till dawn reading a novel. I wanted my blog title to reflect me. Suddenly it all fell into place, the novel I was reading the previous night-Alice Walker’s Color Purple, the likeness with the character Celie, my love for life, love for purple- and lo! The color purple was born. :)
