  1. Well stated, Tandy! I love Sophies foodie files too because it is all about my foodie files! I haven’t heard that name before, 4 years ago! So, It was quite original too, at that time, jusdt like yours!!! xxx

  2. I made the same mistake Tandy but with patience, was able to change it. There was a company in Japan that had agrigirl.com and so I waited and eventually it became available.

  3. I call those sorts of days “flat”.. my mind and imagination are just flat. So I get out and do “stuff” and my creativity just comes back in. I read somewhere this is called “going out and filling your cup” so that you can write about it. Thanks for the tip on names.. I’m a bit of a geek, so I googled and fiddled til I found one that worked, then purchased it right away. I think you can also have Lavender and Lime but don’t end with a .com but with .net?

    • I would not change it now Barbara as too many people know where to find me! I love the concept of going out and filling my cup 🙂

  4. Strangely I have been thinking of “upgrading’ my blog name or at least tag line as I now incorporate more than just recipes from my book – not an easy exercise and in hind sight should have thought about when I started blogging but we live and learn.
    I am sure it is just the time of year where we all start slowing down with blogging so don’t worry about the slow period, it will pick up again soon.
    Have a lovely day.

    • Rather just change your tag line so you don’t lose your identity! My blog is on a go slow – not me! The internet is not playing nicely with my url 🙂

  5. Hi tandy, an interesting post – and I’ve been wondering whether to put comments in moderation so that I get to see them all – I’ve recently spotted a few older ones, and I feel terrible fo rnot having responded sooner !!

  6. Good post!

    I chose my blog name before I started scrapbooking and doing family research. I used African graphics, which doesn’t go so well with old family photos 😉

  7. Thanks for those wise words Tandy. It actually means a lot as it is something I have been pondering on for a while and I would really hate to have to start from scratch. I know a lot of people have a dislike of Blue Gum’s as an alien species but I guess as a foreigner in South Africa the connection is appropriate for me!

  12. I never checked either back in 2006. My blog name turned out to be the name of the Kraft foods magazine in America, so I occasionally get confused people looking for them visiting me!

  14. Nothing wrong with a slow period now and then Tandy. Some times life gets sped up and blogging needs to slow right on down. I hope you are having a good week.

  15. Good post Tandy. I have moments of regret about my blog name (a) because, as you say, the URL is probably too long and (b) because I am planning to go back to the UK at some point and I can’t pretend that I will still be cooking under a Blue Gum tree! I am in two minds whether to change my blog name when that happens. Any thoughts?

    • I would not change it as you have established a great identity – and it is unique. Funnily enough, I live in Bluegum avenue so I have a personal liking to your blog name. We used to have this huge bluegum tree outside our house – it made a racket when the wind blew, and it does often here in Gordons Bay. As they are aliens the tree had to be cut down, so you barely see them here anymore 🙂
