Love Your Way sucks. No, no, not you. It’s not you, it’s us. Actually, it’s the name. Damn you, Peter Frampton.
Who knows what SEO is? Raise your hands. Oh, good, all of you. You know who’s not raising their hands? Us 10 months ago. See, that’s when we chose this name. We thought we were being ironic. Not in the Alanis Morissette way, either. But, apparently, we were being iconic and moronic.
We don’t live and breathe SEO or anything. As you can see, when you search for “Love Your Way,” we don’t even rank. Like, we might be on the 100th page, depending on the day. That sucks because we want you to be able to find us.
It’s bothered me since about the first week we chose it.
So we need a new name. We really need a new name. We had a list of about 100 we have narrowed down to none because we’re our own worst critics and we’re terrified of picking another ridiculously anti-Google, cliche name. We have a couple of ideas, but I won’t cloud your creativity by telling you for now, because, you see, we need your help.
We’ve determined we want our blog to branch away from the wedding-centric. And, of course, not totally, we are still planning ours (I know, guys, I know). Maybe if I didn’t have to have 2-day long crying fits about the uselessness of LoveYourWay.net, I could plan this bitch. So help a sistah out.
Here’s what we need:
A name. An available domain with the beloved and mysterious .com extension.
Here’s what you should know:
Although we’ll still be planning our wedding and what not, we tend to write more about design, writing, love-ology, rants, pets, ants….I mean. Just the first few and cohabitation. We’re sarcastic, sailor-mouthed city kids. That’s all.
Here’s what you get:
We are building a box full of pass-the-baton awesome for the generator of our favorite name. So far, the box has:
- I Was Told There’d Be Cake by Sloane Crosley – an awesomely inspirational book of essays from a girl who can’t seem to get anything right.
- A mixtape: TBD based on a few artists you like and what these two rock-snobs think you should like.
- Handwritten letter: Expressing our extreme, undying gratitude.
- Pack of 10 thank you cards we designed just for this: I’ll be posting pictures later this week.
Please help our overly critical, insatiable minds come up with a name we will love and won’t despise ourselves for choosing a month later. Every suggestion will be awesome and welcome. We already love you.
Please limit yourself to three suggestions per person, to keep the airwaves clear.
Please make sure the name has an available domain if possible, if not, we’ll worry about that.
We’re hoping to decide by Friday, September 9th, 2011. Obviously, the time doesn’t matter.
You are fantastic. Thanks for letting us sift through your minds. It’s hard to rename yourself, wouldn’t you say? If you want to share with your friends or followers, we would love as many minds involved as possible.
We also have a printable thank you postcard download we’ll share with anyone who submits.
