Effective immediately I have changed the name of this blog. It’s not nearly as dramatic as the last change I made just over a year ago. In fact, this time it’s not a change per se, but just a shortening of the title. Up until today the name was:
Depression and Bipolar Disorder: Insights from a Bipolar Bear
As of today the name is simply:
Insights from a Bipolar Bear
Why the change? I just thought the name was dry and boring with “Depression and Bipolar Disorder” as the title. It was also too damn long. I decided the “Insights from a Bipolar Bear” says it all. You know from the name that the blog is about bipolar disorder without having it spelled out for you.
Unfortunately, the web address will remain as the ridiculously long www.depressionandbipolardisorder.com I don’t know what I was thinking when I did that. I think when I saw it was available I got excited and jumped on it. I mean what a perfect name for a blog about depression and bipolar disorder. It would be perfect, but typing that long address name can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.
Down the road I may change the web address, but I’m going to leave it as is for now. There’s a risk involved with changing, including losing readers.
You’ll still see the old name floating around, but eventually I will get the label changed in the various directories out there.
