Winds of Change

So, the general feeling I'm getting from the comments on my last post (and thank you all one million times for leaving them, you rock!) is one of "go for it". So I think I shall. I have decided that I am going to make a new blog, rather than give this one a facelift. It's been here for almost three years (can you believe that? I had to look it up, but there you have it.) and while I appreciate the history, a clean slate needs to be clean. There are, however, some complications that I must work through before all of this can happen.

1. I need a new blog name. I think I may even work in my real name there somewhere. My current bleary, hazy thought on this one is "Carrie Me Home (I'm tired!)" after the only knock-knock joke I've ever heard with my name in it. Other options.. perhaps something that combines the name of a hunter skill with the name of a paladin skill.. but it's not going to be just a WoW blog, so that might confuse people. Also, something involving dragons might be good too. Or even just "Clean Slate". Suggestions are welcome!

2. Once I've decided on a name, I need a new header image. Bansidhe did such a nice job on the one I have now, I'm kind of spoiled, and don't want just plain old boring Blogger stuff up there any more. If I go with the first title I mentioned, I'm thinking I'll have the title in the middle, with Cael in "feign death" pose on the left and Saraabi in "imp. feign death" pose on the right. I want to have my WoW characters in there somewhere, since I will be writing about them a lot. They're not the focus, but the game is a big part of what I do these days. Again, suggestions welcome. Once I get an idea of what I want, I may try to make it myself. We'll see.

3. ???

4. Profit! No, not really. I've never had ads on my blog before and I don't intend to start now. I'm not going to pay for my own domain either, I'm going to sit right here on Blogger where I've always been. I don't need anything fancy (custom header notwithstanding).

So there we have it. Lots of decisions to make, and formats to play with, colors, everything!

Well, you could always call it "Winds of Change"! I rather do like "Carrie Me Home" and bet it would like really nice if you could someone get Gaelic script for it along with your pictures.

I'm thinking of a blog-lift myself though not going full bore into a brand new one. I'm getting a little tired of the current lay-out but I'm just not sure what to do with it at this point, especially considering my original blog designer seems to have fallen off of the face of the earth much to my dismay.

Whatever you do here, I'm sure it will be great and be sure to send me the new URL!

I suppose "Carrie Joy Everywhere" would go up like a lead baloon... ;)
