Blog Carnival Post and Name Change

I’ve just submitted to my first Blog Carnival! I’m hoping it’ll help generate some more traffic to my blog. Here’s the link:

My friend Livia is the one who told me about blog carnivals (you can check out one of her posts at the above link too). Check out to find out more about them.

So second order of business: I’ve changed the title of my blog to “Writer/Reader”. Not incredibly creative, I know. I’ve been having a bit of trouble coming up with a good one. I was getting tired of “Monkey Poop” though and decided to go for something a little more serious. Let me know if you think I should switch it back :)

    Monkey poop

    Hmm, I like monkey poop. Not quite sure where you got it, but it’s got more personality than writer/reader. Hav eyou ever thought about leaving livejournal? It seems more limited than blogger/wordpress in terms of comments and other features.

      Re: Monkey poop

      Other people have agreed with you about monkey poop, so I’m changing it back.

      It’s more out of pure laziness that I’ve stayed with livejournal. I actually do crosspost to blogger ( but I haven’t been happy with the themes at the other websites and I’m too lazy/not skilled enough to do a customized one.

  2. I used to crosspost to blogger, too, but it got too much. LiveJournal is good for more personal things, but it doesn’t rank very highly in searches etc. On the upside, LiveJournal is more community-minded than other platforms. I think that’s why a lot of writers use it.

    You don’t have to do too much customization with WordPress–there are a lot of great as-is themes out there. I can customize them–I have enough PHP–but it’s not really worth it. There’s a design for almost everything already.

    Also a fan of Monkey Poop. And I’m sure kids love it!

    I like Monkey Poop, also.

    Well…I don’t like the actual poop, I’m sure–never really touched it–but I like the name.

    I’m also a fan of WordPress if you are going to change.

    I also want to say that if you do your writing tips on Wednesdays, I’m trying to get a group going of Wednesday Writers. See specifics here:

    I have no one doing it with me yet, but you gotta start somewhere. This is your chance to get in on the ground floor. heh heh
