Ok, now I have to think of a name for my new blog, please help
Edited on Mon Sep-19-05 02:55 AM by Melodybe
Since I send out tons of political e-mails, a friend suggested that I get a blog; that way I can relay the info without feeling bad about spamming people, and it takes less time.

But now I need a name for it, since apparently My Blog is no good.

My hubby came up with Manufacturing Dissent, which I love, but then two of my friends suggested that I should use my name.

I would like a clever name, that reflects me and my politics, unfortunately i am not that clever when it comes to names so please give me some suggestions.

Thanks

1. I'd love to help, but I'm currently struggling to name my own site.
I can't come up with much, which is surprising since I'm so creative.

Hmmmm--what is the theme of your political e-mails? Is there are theme? Are you focused on one set of isses? Which ones? Do you have a last name off of which you can make a clever pun?

4. Nope I pretty much send anything that has to do with politics
from Congress's website to DU links, to flash anime, to MP3's, to movie trailers no real theme other than politics and/or political stuff that I think rules.

9. If I were able to do the work you do - 'ThisLandIIsOurLand'
would be my choice. And I would put a short homage to Woodie Guthrie - maybe just a few links - at a top corner.

Thanks for all the work you do.

41. nope, just born in 59, a bumper crop year for Melodys
I know a number of Melodys around my own age.

I like Melodious Dissent. I'm called Melodious as a nickname, which I'm sure you are, too (along with "Mel" and various other permutations). Go for it.

36. Why don't you do this, call it "In Other Words" take the daily BS
and take what is being said down to the nitty-gritty. They say X just bring what they are REALLY saying and sound off. Since their Bullshit is indeed daily, you will have plenty of material.

2) On your blog, keep links for EVERYTHING that goes on in congress. WHat's up, what's really going on and being voted on, the MSM fails horribly here and so do all other blogs.

3) Keep a log of EO's.

Build a platform for bringing back page news, thats important to the front page. Specialize in that.
