I was overwhelmed and honored to have over 100 blog names submitted. I originally planned to go with something more professional rather than it sounding like a personal blog. On the other hand, my writing is usually pretty light-hearted and I felt like the name should reflect that. Torn between each, my mind went back and forth, back and forth, not sure which direction I should go. As I was looking through the plethora of submissions I saw two together and realized I had my answer: My blog name can be both professional and fun at the same time. There are two winners:
The first winner is Michele whose blog is Digging Myself Out. Her submission was “Depression and Bipolar Disorder: A life’s Struggle.”
This was a pretty serious submission, however, the “Depression and Bipolar Disorder” with the colon stuck with me. What else could I place after the colon?
The second winner is Lora, who I don’t believe has a blog, but is a regular reader of “How is Bradley.” Her submission was “Bipolar Bear,” Instantly this was my favorite. I loved it. Unfortunately when I checked the URL’s, “Bipolar Bear” was taken in every conceivable way I could imagine. At first I was very disappointed, but I kept receiving an onslaught of great options, so I stopped worrying about it. Then, when I looked at the two submissions together, I knew I had this blogs new name. The name is:
“Depression and Bipolar Disorder: Insights From a bipolar Bear”
I know it’s long, but that’s okay. The new URL will be:
Sure, its long, but I think that’s okay because it’s plain, simple and easy to remember. I will get the blog moved over to its new location as soon as possible.
