Decisions, decisions.

Ok I really need your help, because I'm completely incapable of making decisions by myself. Like five minutes back, I couldn't decide if I wanted to go to the loo or not. Because, isn't that like a life or death decision.

Ok back to business. No not my 'business'.

I've decided that its time this blog grew up a little. Its been almost two years and I'm desperate for a change. I'm gonna go for it, and get my own domain name. I would love to move to wordpress, but unfortunately lack the funds for a domain name AND monthly hosting, plus I'm scared I wont be able to design for wordpress, and that would be a big minus, because lets be honest, who really comes here for the content!

I spent two nights tearing my hair out over names. So I'm gonna ask you guys, because I'm scared my already nightmarish hair wont survive another night.

I'm still basing it on a lemon-ish theme, to keep my identity intact. I'm not willing to let go of that bit just as yet. Its just baby steps for now.

Lurkers, just click one please. I'm in dire need of opinions here. (I used the word 'dire', for heaven's sake!)



Thanks guys. Now all I need to do is weasel my dad's credit card, which is proving to be quite a task because he's one of those "I-don't-trust-the-internet-with-my-money" kinda people.

Wish me luck!

Oi. don't you dare move to wordpress. And i chose lemonishly, i dunno lemonized sounded too formalized and criticized, well, simply won't work.
Best of luck!!

Blogger Nags had this to say:

what was ur domain name on blogger before u moved to this one? wasn't that lemon themed too?

Wordpress was beckoning me as well, a while a back. But I decided i am too 'bloggerized' :D and i am a bit of a change-resistor. But he is a suggestion.

If you haven't yet, which i highly doubt, please play around with the wordpress page composer, general back-end and all that jazz. I didn't find those are clutter-free, user-friendly and clean as blogger. But then again, i may be a bit biased here :D

There are some cool templates out there for WP but of course you want to make your own :)

i hope u come up with what's best for you. Good luck!

I chose lemonishly cuz i had to pick one. Honestly, I think all three don't justify you :)

Hey, you should just go to GoDaddy.com and buy a domain. Some domain names are pretty cheap there. I bought my domain (http://brat0421.com) almost 4 yrs ago. Of course, I'm just forwarding that to my blog for now, but.....

Anyway, good luck with the domain name selection! ;-)

I like none. All of them are too long.

How about lemolady? :)

Blogger *~Puzzle~* had this to say:

What about Lemon-Squeezy. Like that rhynme 'Easy Peasy, lemon-Squeezy'...lol lame i know...i like amrit's 'lemolady'. That's cool. I bought a domain name off GoDaddy.com. It was cheap. My friend is letting me host off his site at this stage which is nice. Hosting can be expensive.

Blogger Mith had this to say:

hmmm...lemme think...how abt "lemon-law"??? (hehe... I'm gonna have to lemon law you...)

ok, seriously, all three are 'not you' but if I had it pick one, it wud be 'lemonized'...it somehow sounds cool...you know, like "you've been google-ized" or "blogger-ized"...or "you've been BAMBOOZLED!!!!" (ok, i HAVE to stop watching so many sitcoms)

Never, ever go with citricized.com - it will be largely confused with criticized.com, which I guess doesn't suit you at all.

But to be frank, none of the others are that good either.

You know, if was anybody else, I would've asked them to move to WordPress anyday but the fact that you make such fantabulous blogger templates makes me think. I don't know if the shift would be worth it or not. Agreed WP is much more customized but it tends to get much more complicated and really annoying at points too. But then again, I'm sure you can handle that. I don't know what to say really.

Blogger amrit had this to say:

Few more suggestions for you would be site's URL:

Neembuvaali.com

Lady-Lemon.com

Blemon.com

Lemoblog.com

Have fun picking up the right name! :D

Did my bit :) Good luck deciding :)

And I hope u move to WP fast... Its a lot more fun out there and with your talent I am sure getting a CSS upgrade would reap a lot many benefits :)

Blogger The Keeper of the Keys had this to say:

@humbl devil--oops my bad. but thats why it doesn't work, right?

@vaudevillian--ZOMGLOL. I've been laughing ever so hard at that comment, actually rainbowcolouredbabies is a VERY good idea.

@lemonade--oh i read lemolady somewhere, sounds good, but there's always rainbow...omglol...*falls off laughing from chair*

Lemonishly.com - Sounds delicious.

Would not mind giving you a couple of GB of space and a spanking new install of wordpress, your own login (so that it's all yours and nobody can interfere), etc.

Why would I do that? Because I like the way you write, and the design.

Look forward to hearing what domain you've decided on.

Cheers!

Oh, And please do move to wordpress... I've worked with a tonne of other CMS and blogging platforms, and there's 'almost' nothing to beat WP.

Theming is simple, and there are Hazar tutorials on how to do so. Lucrative business too...
