Name That Blog!!

By the end of the month, my goal is to have up and running and to have all of this jazz moved over there..  It is a wordpress page, and I have paid for, downloaded and uploaded my preferred theme.  I just need to make the move the official move over there.  Sadly, this little blogspot home I’ve found here, is quite cozy and I’m a wee bit distressed about making the move but I'm excited about taking the next step into my making my dream of full time writing a reality.

There are a few reasons for my pout about doing it though.  The first being that wordpress  makes me feel like a dumbass.  Like driving off from the gas station without paying for your gas, dumb.   Wait, that hasn't happened since the Pay Before You Pump revolution, but I suspect all of you are old enough to remember that feeling. Anywho, I have full faith that at some point I’ll master it and call it my bitch, but until then, every time I close out of it, I’m left feeling like a complete and utter moron.  I will press on however.

Secondly, I feel like a name change is on the horizon.  As my blog coach, so eloquently defined what I was already feeling/thinking about it, there is a disconnect between the title and the content. I have to admit that hearing that did evoke some sadness on my part, because SFD had the "wow" factor AND it resonated with me personally.

Sh*t, F*ck, D*mn was perfect for a season Being able to put it all out there provided the no holds barred approach I needed to get myself headed in the right direction with blogging. Every time I open the page, I feel like I can say whatever is on my mind, that this is my platform, for me, by me, with love.
Here is where you come in.  I need help coming up with a name.  Sh*t, F*ck, Damn, rattled around in my brain for months before I finally jumped in and did it.  Jeff and I have brainstormed a few times and the best we’ve got is “I saw God today”.  While, that title is sort of what I ultimately want the blog to be about; how I most recently saw or felt God moving, it is simply not irreverent enough!

I don’t want it to be “religious”. I want it to be real. 

Any ideas?  Something slightly cheeky, but with a faithful undertone is what I’m looking for.  While you work on that, I’ll work on strengthening my relationship with Wordpress in an effort to bring you the official launch of!

So, show me what you've got!   You are all FAR more creative than me, so give it your best shot by leaving a comment below.  The winner will get some super tremendous prize, selected by me, from me, with love! xoxo


  1. Be careful what you ask for. I may just drop everything I am doing and devote the rest of my morning to making it happen.

    Life is Goodall
    Hallelujah on Earth
    It's all Goodall
    Faith, Fun, and Four Letter Words
    I'm not Write
    Grounded in Grace
    Looking Forward, Looking Out ,and Looking Up

    ....still, nothing beats Lee's idea of "Confessions of a Potty Mouth".

  2. I just realized something:

    I'm Not Write: Confessions of a Potty Mouth

    works really well together.

  3. These are brilliant! Officially adding your Friends, Faith and Four Letter Words to the selections as well!

  4. It's all good...or Goodall

    OK that sucks. I'll keep thinking. And BTW, Wordpress is totally my bitch now. I have, however, had to learn WAAAAYYY more HTML than I think I should.

  5. When dealing with the HTML crap, I keep trying to console myself with the thought, "it's a potential job skill to add to the ole resume". However comma. . . one of the goals of all of this is to never have to apply for a job again! womp, womp, womp.

    I love the idea of the play on name thing... again with the however comma... it's the ex's name. what happens if i were. . . one day. . . to become... oh, i don't know... a SMITH... or something like that? ;-)

    thanks for the ideas, jon! keep 'em coming!

  6. How about...
    - Adventures of a God Stalker
    - Stalking God
    - Godstalking (could be read as God Stalking or God's Talking. cute, eh?)

    That's all I have for now - will be back later with more!

  7. Awesome, Larry! Looking forward to more great ideas!!

  8. Thanks! Ok, I'm back from the movies now. How about...

    "God Droppings: How I recently saw God move"

    Definitely cheeky and irreverent!


    My friend, you have successfully wrapped up cheeky and irreverent in one HI-larious title!
