What's In A Name?

If you've made it this far, you know that my blog's web address has changed. I identify myself as goddessofmath on Twitter and Facebook, so it seemed natural to go ahead and change my blogging identity as well.

Now that that's out of the way, I need help with some future changes. I want to totally update my blog. Most of that will be done on my end with some handy Photoshop magic (always wanted to design it myself anyways), but part of it needs your help. You might have noticed that the title of my blog, Life According to a High School Math Teacher, isn't very fitting. I rarely, if ever, talk about teaching thanks to laws and such. If anything, showing life as a teacher is just showing that we're people like everyone else. So out with the old and in with the new!

My new blog title is... yeah... I'm stumped. Can you, loyal reader, help me out? I would LOVE suggestions! Here's what I've been playing around with:

1. I like lists, so "Listing..." What I'm listing to or listing itself, I have no clue.
2. I enjoy blogging about Disney World, but I'm not limited to that. Subtle Disney title would be cool though.
3. I'm a geek, pure and simple, so something that incorporates that would rock.
4. I think a play on words would be nice, but I'm all mathy and such and unable to come up with one.
5. Finally though I do think I've got something going with this: I write on my blog when 140 characters on Twitter isn't enough. If I could incorporate that into a rockin' blog name (like 141 Plus), it would be total awesomesauce.

I blog about my life. That includes, but isn't limited to, random stories about me, my family, and my dog. It's about funny moron moments that I have and Disney trips and thoughts. I write about what comes to mind when the mood to write hits. It's random. It's undefined. It's more than 140 characters. Always.

Suggestions? I'm eagerly awaiting the lightbulb moment when a great blog title falls into my lap, so I can start putting my mad Photoshop skills to work. Help. :)


  1. How about "Geeking Out at 141+ wpm"

  2. Geeking Out at 141+ Characters

  3. skewed lines (I like this one!) :)

  4. I think you hit it with the phrase
    I'm all mathy and such.

    But this is fun, so here are my suggestions:

    Math, but now only when I feel like it, chick.

    Not Pythagoras.

    Make Mine Jozarro.

    Have you seen my Protractor?

    I came here to write crap and drink Dole Whips. And I'm all out of Dole Whips.

    Is it Wednesday yet?

    Words with Friends and Random Internet Acquaintances.

    Nobody puts Bloggy in a corner.

    Look I didn't get fired, I just changed the title, okay?

    Mathchick: Legacy

  5. ROFL! Keeper - I may seriously have to change the name of my blog weekly to use all of those! I can't even pick a favorite. I knew this was up your alley. Can't stop laughing!

  6. I think the winner is
    Joanna and her Amazing Technicolor Interweb. I feel it embraces all and gives free range of blog posts.

  7. One Blog To Bind Them

    Stuff I think I think, I think

    So....this happened

    The only Math here is the numbers on my lists

    The blog I write when I am not on Twitter or dreaming bout Disney World

    You know I'm right

    I miss you, Jussi Jokinen :(

  9. All that Glitters is not gold. Oh, who am I kidding? Of course it is.

    Can I get this for a snack credit? And other great questions of life.

  11. I don't always write blogs, but when I do, I prefer goddessofmath. -- Stay mathy my friends.

  12. There is a Disney movie called Donald in Mathmagic Land...about how math can be useful in our every day lives. Hmmm...bells are going off in my head anyway. Maybe something like 141 Characters in Mathmagic Land? Or 141 Ways to Reach Mathmagic Land?

  13. I wanna play! (That's not a blog name suggestion--just my introduction....)

    "Eight Squared Plus Seventy-Six Is Not Enough"

    "I Tink, Therefore I Am"

    "Random Comment Generator"


    "If It Was Important Enough For Me To Write About, It's Important Enough For You To Read"

    "Sent From My Rockin' iPad"

    "I Just Gleeked"

    "Eat My Dust, Book of Phylemon"

  14. I've been waiting for january embers to get involved, and I am not dissapointed. Although I didn't exepect her to go all Andrew Bynum on Book of Phylemon. Cheap shots at Mortgame, yes, it's been forever since we got a new mort. I mean come on, dude, give the people what they want.

    I thought of some more Disney related ones. What about?

    Don't you wish your girlfriend could blog like me?

    And we guarantee a photo with every post!

  16. You guys are AWESOME! Love it when my hilariously witty friends come in for a throw down. I think I've picked the blog name and will reveal it later this week once I get time to PhotoShop a banner.

    "Don't You Wish Your Girlfriend Could Blog Like Me?" is genius.

  17. Already got a winner? We can't shut it down now. I haven't got to use any of titles that involve Pirate Elfs who really like X-Men comics.

  18. Or men with eye liner... we need something about pirate hobbits who like to wear eye liner.

  19. You mean Richard Darkeye of The Shire?
