Since You're Reading This...

I clearly have readers. Some of you post comments, and at least one went so far as to exclaim, Read This Blog! Given that, and the discussion of posting my conversion story elsewhere, I've decided that it is in fact appropriate to rename this blog. But I don't plan to rush into it. Papa Ben has ably demonstrated that patience resolves a lot of decisions and conflicts.

Option the First: Crop the name back to "Arkanabar's Eclectic Rants". My desire to focus on heroism will not prevent me from posting on whatever else strikes me as worth bloviating, pontificating, or ranting upon.

Option the Second: Invent some new title that reflects my desire to focus, more or less, on heroism.

Option the Third: Pick a new title from the offerings of my readers. I'd really like that. I'm often lazy.

My comment from yesterday has not appeared yet, so let me vote again for option the first.

Now you have two readers! Nice blog.

Actually, I have at least three. ukok has posted a comment here as well.

"The Home Arkanabar's Nobodies"

"Catholic libertarian. Where the two conflict, Catholic tends to win"

I like that part. You are keeping that right

Well, libertarians are nice enough people, but if the Church's doctrine is guided and protected from error by the Holy Spirit, then I have to give Him the higher moral authority.

Well there isn't Liberty without the Author of Liberty, so there you go.

From time to time you will have yet another reader, albeit an anonymous one.

Who, for now, votes option one.

By the way, thanks for the nickname "Papa Ben". I've been looking for a shorter but good way to refer to that great guy.

Well, I decided to be not quite as anonymous and get a blogger account so I could help contribute to a friend's blog. Now you can more or less identify your briefly formerly anonymous reader.

You know, I actually like "Or, The Blog Nobody Reads", as a note of irony.

I will suggest a title, I like naming things!

SuperCatholicHeroificexpialidocous!

People will remember it!

How about 'The Name Nobody Can Pronounce'?

I’m quite new to this site, but I’ll weigh in none the less.

Drop “eclectic rants”. It doesn’t add any value to the blog’s name. I mean, by definition, aren't almost all blogs eclectic/personal rants/musings?

How about “Arkanabar’s Heros”

Being up front about your POV is good too. So leave “Catholic libertarian. Where the two conflict, Catholic tends to win.”

Arkanabar T'verrick Ilarsadin said...

Wow, constructive suggestions.

As for "eclectic" ... that's been on every website I've ever had in order to post personal rants (which is pretty much all of them).

As for "Arkanabar's Heroes"... truth is, I rarely post about heroism. Maybe if I actually went and searched it out, instead of waiting for stories to fall into my lap? Still, something to think about.

I vote for ""Arkanabar's Eclectic Rants" -- any title with the word 'eclectic' in it has my admiration.

I do like the idea of trimming it down. Shorter = easier to remember. (One hint: you might get more readers if you update more often .... jk)
