the good and the bad news regarding this little blog o' mine

Check out the address bar in your browser!


Yes, my friend! sincerelyputdar.blogspot.com is now simply putdar.net :D

However, I still find an error when opening http://putdar.net (without the 'www') in Chrome, but the address works perfectly fine in Firefox. The old address still works, though. If you open this blog via the old url, you will be redirected to the new one.

That, my friend, is the good news.

The bad news is... well, yesterday I googled 'the nerdy elephant' (like I always do whenever I'm bored). This blog was still dominating the first page, but there was a Facebook fanpage which had a different description than mine. So I checked it out. Turned out someone had a website called The Nerdy Elephant. The site is brand new and still has nothing in it. My heart is broken. Completely broken.

So I might change the name of this blog. Again. Very soon.

I'm still thinking a new name, the one that (hopefully) could be a permanent name for this blog. I don't want to confuse my readers and followers, but since that person who has The Nerdy Elephant website seems serious about it (they even bought a .com), I think I should be the one who takes a step back.

I'm so sad. I got the name by thinking about it very carefully with Entin. I had done some research first by googling various names (like 'the dancing elephant', 'the jumping elephant', etc.) before settling down on 'the nerdy elephant'. Why didn't that person do some research before deciding to use it? :(

Now, do you have any suggestion as to what I should name this blog? (Or if you have any suggestion regarding The Nerdy Elephant)

Sincerely,
Putdar.



PS. NATION was a huge success! Gonna post about is as soon as I get the pictures from Richo (I was so busy that I didn't get the chance to take pictures). In the meantime, you can see some pictures over at Dini's blog or at NATION's official Tumblr :)
