I think I’m going to change the name of my blog.
“Wendy’s Chronicles” sounds like something you would call an 18th century textbook, except that the name Wendy didn’t exist back then. Did you know that Wendy was invented by J.M. Barrie for his book, “Peter Pan”? Thought I would throw in that bit of trivia. Yeah, I know. Rabbit-trailing again.
I’d like to know who ever thought up the title “Wendy’s Chronicles” for a blog. Wait. It was me, I think. I must have been in the middle of a dark period. Come to think of it, I was. At the time I started this blog, I was gainfully employed by one of our country’s biggest financial institutions and perhaps I felt that my management position persona must be reflected in my blog – or at least in the title. How dumb is that? Nobody from work ever read my blog anyway. And the dark period – well – that was only during the last year or two of my career. Mostly due to a changing of the guard in the higher levels of corporate government. That’s a nice way of saying my boss and I didn’t see eye to eye on very much. Actually, nothing.
Back to the re-naming.
My options include:
1. The Crazy (or Slightly Eccentric) Bookstore Lady
2. Inside the Writer
3. Loving My Life
Any ideas out there?

I love, LOVE the background material here. And I especially appreciate the comment about you-know-who that you didn't see eye to eye with. Thankfully, he's long gone out of both of our lives, and we've moved on to much better places (haven't we?). Do I get a vote on the new name of your blog? I vote for #2, because the space inside a writer is vast, and it can be filled with anything you want it to be filled with. As I don't think you have a consistent theme to your blog, Inside the Writer embraces whatever it is you write about. That's my choice, but, of course, it's not my blog.I look forward to seeing what name you change it too. Who knows? Perhaps you'll think of something else altogether.
I agree with Rick on He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. Knowing what you're talking about makes the story even more amusing. We're all better off as far as I'm concerned.I think you should stray from all conventional names. Perhaps "The Rabbit Hole"? I'm sure a blog with that title exists already, but it would be in keeping with a theme of children's fantasy stories and personally think it would be profoundly appropriate for you!
