A Rose by Any Other Name
I decided that I will start a new editorial page. Not long ago I did a daily editorial page called “Il Gnomestead Stump” and while I could continue it even after a bit of a gap, I think perhaps I will start a new one.
I have a few reasons for the decision. A number have to do with control of content. I have a more flexibility on a host I pay. I still have to stay within the law of course. I do have recourse to change provider if regulations are not what I care for.
Still, the largest reason I decided to make the change was a matter of the name. “Il Gnomestead Stump” is a bit of an odd name. It fit in with the whole “Gnomestead” “Garden Gnome” motif. I also had the “Gnome’s Campfire” and later the “Gnome’s Village”. I had already used the Gnome’s Campfire… I wanted a place where people might come around and listen. So I figured rather than a soap box… a stump, like the log you might sit or stand on by the campfire would work as a base for a name.
Now, I have “Il Gnomestead” which I keep in “gnomestead.com” and “Giardino del Gnome”. But, I want a better name for my editorial site. Otherwise I could just keep “Il Gnomestead Stump” on Blogspot.
Here are my thoughts for a new name:
- The Gnome’s Campfire
- The Gnome’s Bonfire
- The Gnome’s Fireside
- The Gnome’s Soapbox
- By the Gnome’s Fireplace
- Gnorman’s Campfire
- Gnorman’s Fireside
- Gnorman’s Soapbox
I am not sure if there might be better names or if I should get away from Gnomes and Gnorman… I’m looking for ideas.
