UPDATE, December 1, 2014: Contest is over! Winners announced!
I like blogs. The best blogs almost always have a good name, even if the blog itself is a promotional tool or “side business” for the person who writes it. A good blog name puts things in context. It sets the tone. Blog names can be descriptive, funny, clever, bizarre, or stupid. Quite often, they are two or more of those things.
John Scalzi’s blog is named “Whatever.” Patton Oswalt’s is called “Spew.” Both names are perfect for their respective creators. I’m disappointed that my blog doesn’t have a name. Right now the title is “Matt Perkins Blog,” which is super boring. Super, duper boring, perhaps. Especially compared to “Spew.” I may as well have left the title blank.
I wish I could think up an excellent title, but for some reason I’m coming up empty. Thus, I’ve decided to do a contest to let you guys choose the title of my blog. Hopefully you can do better than I did, or at least have some fun trying.
Speaking of fun, what fun would a contest be without fabulous prizes? Here’s what I’m offering:
- For the winning entry: a $25 (US) Amazon.com gift certificate
- For two runners-up: a $10 (US) Amazon.com gift certificate
In addition, the winner, runners-up, and two other random contestants (i.e. five contestants in total) will receive a free copy of Winterwakers Part 1: Cold Hands for Kindle. Yay!
