Well, as things have unfolded since this site has come into being, I have the desire to change the name. The reason is I don’t really want TPM to be a part of the blog’s name going forward. TPM is part of the history of this site and won’t be forgotten. But for the most part I think those from the site who will be joining have joined. And I want those out there in wordpress land who don’t know what TPM is to feel like they can join in the conversation and even join the blogging group.
Of course, if I change the name, I will have to move the site to a new URL address. Which is no big deal other than people having to change a bookmark if they had created one to this address.
One of the purposes of this site is to be a gathering place for people to share thoughts, poems, life stories, and opinions about what is going on in this crazy country and world we call home.
So I don’t want to just change the name without imput from everyone. I have created a poll to let everyone have their say (along with the comments below). There are three options. 1- Don’t Change the Name. This is pretty self-explanatory and if people really like it, I can live with that. 2- Change the Name- I don’t care what it is. This is basically you saying to me that I can just change to whatever tickles my fancy at the moment. 3 – Change the Name – It should be a group process. If this is the winner, I will set up a process for people to put in their suggestions (which one can offer in the comments below by the way) and then some way to get a group “consensus” on the final name. (I would add that I cannot see who voted what.)
