Pajama Days versus My Pajama Days

When I started this blog the name came easily. It had been imprinted on my mind for a long time before it ever came into fruition. I never gave much thought to a personalized header or logo and I especially didn’t think much of domain names or email addresses. Unfortunately, I wish I had.

Here I am six months later realizing that a simple google search of “Pajama Days” would have uncovered thousands of websites, blog entries, Facebook accounts and even a domain name (albeit undeveloped, someone own’s it!) There are a lot of blogging tips out there – some are high on my list while others really are just a matter of opinion and will probably not be implemented. This one though, my dear blogging friends – if you haven’t already, please take heed. Think about the blogs that you follow or recommend. I bet most of those have identical web addresses, emails and blog names, or at the very least their web address is simply the author’s name. Foolishly I didn’t do any of those things.

Here is my dilemma: Pajama Days or My Pajama Days? It is one silly little word, but would require a lot of changes. One of which, I can not change, of course, is my user name. That is actually the very least of my concerns since I have a web address reflecting that silly little word My. Besides, closing this account and reopening it under an updated user name seems ludicrous. What would happen to all of my subscriptions?  I really couldn’t believe how many places Pajama Days is used all over the internet…when this blog – these personal stories and observations all belong to me…this is My Pajama Days.

I wish I had read some of these blogs before I started blogging, and not after:

A list of great writing resources found on Two Kinds of People

There are tons of other great blogging resources, but these just happen to be the ones I frequent the most. Let me know what resources you find notable.

So I am asking for help and advice from all of you veteran bloggers. What would you do? Would there be any great ramifications or confusion? What are my options?

  1. Leave it alone! I like it… there is nothing wrong with the word “my”. This is YOURS after all.
    (though I understand. I liked the title I chose for my blog and now kinda want to change it. But don’t want to confuse people. So I stick with it!)

  2. What about adding “The” or “These” to the title? Or “Our,” or an adjective, perhaps? I like the “Pajama Days” part, but maybe it needs to be something a bit more personal for the reasons you’ve described.

    Ultimately, quality content keeps them coming back. And you’ve got it, my dear.
