New Domain

After much internal debate, I have finally registered a domain name for my blog. bibliophilemusings.com is the new site address (whenever it kicks in). I like it quite well. The new site title is Musings of a Bibliophile. What does it mean?

Bibliophile \ˈbi-blē-ə-ˌfī(-ə)l\
Function: noun
Etymology: French, from bibli- + -phile

: a lover of books especially for qualities of format ; also : a book collector

That's me!

Musing (myoozng)
adj.
Deep in thought; contemplative.
n.
1. Contemplation; meditation.
2. A product of contemplation; a thought

Anyway, I wanted to change the site title for many reasons, but the main one was that over time I began disliking the title Cupid's Chokehold. I don't know why I named my blog that to begin with. It had nothing to do with anything. One day I was brainstorming names while MTV played in the background. The song Cupid's Chokehold came on and the rest is history. I crack myself up thinking about it now.

This new title feels more like home to me. I can identify with it and I'm happy about it. Now I have to change my header. Grumbles.

  3. Thanks Wendy!

    And thanks, Nath! Your site is named after you, right?

    About the link: Whenever the domain name kicks in it will automatically redirect you to the new site address. So if someone is using the cupidschokehold link, don't worry, you will be redirected to the correct site.

  9. It does feel a little more homey now. I can't wait for my brand spanking new layout to get up and running.

  10. Oh! I didn't realize it was going to be a different layout, too. I see the broken pencil and doodle marks now. Any hints or is it going to be a surprise?

  11. Yes, new layout ((thank goodness)). This current one was actually my first layout for this site. I retired early this year.

    I have no hints because I just started working with the person who is designing it for me. But she does good work so I know it will be good. :)
