READER VOTE: New Name

-by Dylan DiBona

Hope everybody is having a great Sunday! I’m at a bit of a crossroad and I need your guys’ input. I’ve hit my first set of goals here on my site:

1,000 Blog Views

100 Followers

500 Unique Visitors

I promised myself that once I hit and then top those goals, I would buy an official domain name and rid myself of the “.wordpress.com” in my URL. My problem is PlayingWithThoughts is taken!

It’s a very annoying situation because I love the name for so many reasons; I always felt like the name could be explained in multiple ways. I’m playing video games thoughtfully, then in turn I play with those thoughts and try and arrange them in written form. But because I cannot use that domain, it’s time to look elsewhere. So here are some ideas I have written on paper (I want the main theme to stay the same):

  1. PlayingWithThought (No S at the end is okay!)
  2. InteractingThoughts
  3. TheThoughtButton

Can you see the trend? I’m pretty sure I know which one I want to go with, but I always value you, my friends, opinions. Vote with 1, 2 or 3 and then I’ll decide soon enough. It’s a sad idea that PlayingWithThoughtwon’t quite exist anymore.


Thanks guys for your input and your time! The new domain might be coming in the next week! As always, thanks for reading.

    • You can have hyphens and extra periods in domains, but it makes it a huge pain to verbally tell someone about it (“playing with thoughts dot com, but with hyphens between each word..”) so generally it’s a good idea to stay away from that.

      I ran a forum at run-around.com for like 9 years and it drove me crazy how often I had to explain the spelling! Avoid hyphens at all costs :O
