Question A Blog By Any Other Name

Hi Guys,

I have a question.

I'm in the middle of a huge site redesign and I'm adding a blog…BLOG…B.L.O.G.…weblog

The name doesn't do anything for me.

I was thinking news and updates but is it really?…hmmm.

The 'blog' will mainly stick to my line of work which is really graphic design an brand promotion, but it will also include anything slightly relevant:

Photography
Illustration
Video
Design in all forms
The Internet.

It's all those things.

So what do I call it. I have a business name Crimson Fox, but Crimson Fox's …what?

If anyone has any ideas or articles that they've read on the topic I'd definitely be interested to have a look.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you've got for me. Thanks.

What's the warning you get on TV? I'm just to think of a play on words with that without sounding corny.

This Blog Has Been Rated X for Extreme Graphic Material. Oh boy! that sounded better in my head. But maybe it will give something to start playing with.

dunno, can you explain further what type of information you will be providing. I realize you listed topics above - but will you be posting news, learning info, examples of your work, or what ....

What's New came to mind, but not sure the 'type' of info you are going to be posting. What's your goal with this new section?

It will be news and new projects about the business but also my views on design and the internet in general.

I'll have to digest a bit more, but "News & Views" also came to mind. Just brainstorming ...

News and Ideas springs to mind. But I'd love to hear if anyone has something more catchy that still says what the page is about so that people will click through to it from my home page.

I would suggest you go with "blog" whether you like it or not, because the term has a certain meaning and growing level of acceptance among the general population. As a user, I'm not likely to click a link that says "News and Ideas", but I would click to read your blog. A blog implies a somewhat more personal type of content, as well as the ability to have a conversation. "News and Ideas" doesn't imply that.

Surely we have a Usability guru around who can chime in on the risks of getting clever with naming conventions.

I think that's my point. I don't like the word blog but it has become an accepted term.

So I will be falling back to blog if I can't find a better option that implies the same sort of content.

It's also a good topic for discussion that I thought people could discuss.
