DAY 2: WHAT’S YOUR NAME?
For this second day of the Zero to Hero Challenge the task is to tinker around with our titles, tag lines, and “who is this guy” blurb. Here is where I think it will be very exciting and beneficial to be part of this challenge. Ready for it?
I NEED FEEDBACK!
There, I said it. I’m not proud. I… I need you, fellow bloggers. When I titled my blog I chose to incorporate my pseudonym into the title for some reason followed by an in-title tag followed by a secondary tag. I guess I was thinking that people would see the name, be intrigued, and say “Hey, why aren’t I following this guy?” So let me bring you in on some things in case “Harvey Millican” wasn’t enough to captivate your Bond-sensibility.
Harvey was the name of my cat when I was a boy. Harvey was still my cat through my later childhood. When I became a man Harvey was still with me. It wasn’t until I went into grad school that old Harv’ finally went off to that padded scratching post in the sky. Actually, he went into a shallow grave in my parents’ back yard only to be exposed a year later when they installed a pool after my dad retired. Either way, even though he hated me (as all cats hate their human companions) I know deep down that he really only disliked me. In going all cloak-and-dagger I wanted to honor his memory. As a theologian I can tell you that this is about as good a tribute as he’ll get since he mortal animating principle was reduced to the potency of his lifeless matter many years ago.
Whatevs. Ermalerd! My teenage students have finally gotten the best of my vocal skills. So, where’s the Millican from? I’ll never tell! Any of you.
Some of you may have read that last line in a sing-song-y type of voice like that freaky girl in that freaky horror movie. I can’t remember the name so we’ll move on.
Bottom line, I have been pondering changing things up and making my title
Raising Your Kids Without Lowering Your IQ
And giving it a tag line of
Harvey Millican’s Battle for Sanity with the Insanity That Is His Kids.
Thoughts? Also, what do you think of my “Welcome!” message? I kind of like it. Another blogger gave me the idea a few years ago; but I’m always open to suggestions. Is there a better place for it than the left column? TELL ME!!!
