Poll: Blog name change?

I need your help! For some time, I've been considering changing the name of my blog. Although some people find the name "I'm Busy Procrastinating" to be clever, I don't know if it's right for me long-term.

I've been brainstorming names for months but most of the ideas I've come up with are already taken. One was scooped up by one of those sites that hoard URLs, and I'm certainly not willing to pay the fee they want to purchase the name from them.

During my brainstorming, one of the names I came up with is The Analytical Decorator. If you haven't figured it out already, I'm a very analytical person. Before I do anything, I complete lots of research, whether it's prior to making many purchases, or prior to starting a project. I rarely just jump right in!

Here's a potential new header:



Whether you're a new or long-time reader, I would appreciate it so much if you weighed in on the potential name change. See ... I can't even change my own blog name without lots of research and consideration!

Please take a moment to make your choice via the poll below.

Which name do you like best for my blog?



Thank you so much for your feedback! The poll closes at 11:59pm on Sunday, April 7. Comments below are welcome as well, if you have more to say about it!

  4. Interesting ... within the first few hours, the commenters prefer the new name but the non-commenters that took the poll prefer the current name. Hmm ....

  6. in my opinion... I'm Busy Procrastinating is a fun/relaxed name. It describes exactly how I am... I am always busy doing fun projects but it is only because I am procrastinating cleaning and other boring stuff. The Analytical Decorator sounds a little bit stuffy to me. My vote is to keep the old name or keep thinking... unless of course you want to be more serious.

    1. Good point. I'm not a professional decorator, so maybe I'm taking my brand image too seriously. Hmm ... still not sure what to do!

  7. Funny thing!! Whenever I am going down my blog list in the mornings, I come to yours and this is what I hear as I read it 'I'm busy PROCRASTINATING'!!!!!!! which always gives me an inner giggle, as procrastinating is a struggle for all of us, so it's totally relateable!!!

    1. P.S it is hard to convey tone in the written word, so imagine the 'Procrastinating' in capital letters as a frusturated yell!!!;P

    2. I used to think it was just me, but I guess many of us are busy procrastinating, huh? It's always good to be relatable!

  8. I just ran across your blog today. I came from a comment you had made on another blog. I was intrigued because of the name of your blog. I likely would not have clicked on "The Analytical Decorator" just because it didn't speak to me like "I'm busy procrastinating" did.

    Do whatever you feel is best, whatever suits your blog, whatever is YOU.

    1. Interesting point about the current name being more of an attention-getter. I'll keep that in mind!
