As in popperfont.com
Last week, I opened up a free wordpress blog, with the hopes of collecting my writings in one place, as well, as trying to categorize the silly “true or false” questions I use in many of my public talks on science literacy (most of which have been discussed in some form or fashion at the World’s Fair, but are kind of buried because of my poor categorization skills).
I initially decided to use the URL davengwrites.com, which was chosen partly out of frustration because every “davidng” or “daveng” URL seemed to have been taken.
Anyway, since yesterday, I’ve been tweaking the site (for a small fee, you can tweak the css), and have decided to rename it popperfont, really for the simple reason that it sounds kind of cool (and also merges two of my primary interests – things about science, and things that look nice).
Then I kind of wondered aloud whether website success has anything to do with what you choose to call the website. I suspect a website’s name it must play a small role in its allure, but does anyone out there know of any example in the blog-o-sphere where this nuance has been noted?
If nothing else, drop on by and leave a comment.
