A Name Change (again . . . and for the last time)

I’ve decided to change the name of my blog one last time because I felt that Rappa Studios sounded too . . . corporate, as if I was either trying to sell something or was a producer of rap albums. From a personal perspective, when I see a name like “Studios” pop up in an internet search, my first thought is that it’s a commercial site, and I wanted to remove that type of association from my blog.

I tossed around several ideas, trying to come up with a catchy name that best represents what my blog is about.  I almost called it A World Beyond My Front Door, a reference to a line from my Vintage Reel Award post, but it was too similar to a blog that already exists (I opted instead to use it as part of my tagline).

In the end I decided upon the simple use of my name, which seems appropriate since I am trying to build a brand for my name as part of my continuing quest to find an agent for my novel.  In fact, I am considering making this blog my full-time home page, for as it has grown to encompass all of my writing and other creative endeavors, it has actually become a better destination to share with prospective agents than my current home page.

It’s just a cosmetic change (the content will remain the same, as will the URL) but a necessary one. To those of you who have been following my blog, I thank you for continuing to stop by; I still have lots of travel stories and photographs that I can’t wait to share with you . . . and I promise that this will be the last name change–unless I change my own name. 🙂

Writer, traveler, photographer, hiker, film/TV addict, amateur chef, casual gamer, and occasional tennis & saxophone player . . . in real life I do web design.

    Good call! Why not use your name? I sort of did that. “RobiniArt” is a play on my name, “Robin Arthur”. 🙂
