Suggestions for Blog Name(s)

I've been posting on MobileRead for more than 6 years now (how time flies), and I'm almost hitting my 1000 post milestone!

Now I need some help from the MobileRead community.

I have two ideas for new blogs, and I am the worst at coming up with good names.

Blog #1

This will be a technical blog discussing the nitty-gritty details of ebooks.

It will be a compilation of all my ebook knowledge on various topics.

There will be in-depth technical posts such as:

The blog will also include links to things that ebook creators would find interesting:

Every post will include detailed discussion and references to my backlog of MobileRead posts.

Blog #2

This will analyze books/authors/series using a variety of methods:
  • n-grams
  • Word/Character Counts
    • With graphs!
  • Longest Sentences
    • + Average Words per Sentence
  • Most Common First Word
  • [...]

and point out any other interesting stats that appear.

Words/Characters per Sentence

For example, I could compare Words per Sentence across a series:

Brandon Sanderson's epic fantasy series, Stormlight Archive books (Books #1-3):

Name:	Stormlight.Archives.Book.3[Words].png
Views:	221
Size:	10.1 KB

Another epic fantasy, Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time (Books #1-3):

George R.R. Martin's A Dance with Dragons (Book #5 of A Song of Ice and Fire):

Or a popular science fiction book, Andy Weir's The Martian:

And I want to preemptively thank everyone for any and all suggestions.

This community has meant so much to me over the past six years, it completely transformed my life, and I can't wait to get the ball rolling on these two projects.

For Blog #2, BetterRed recommended this:

Lingo Metrics

I think it's fantastic.

Blog #1:

Thanks so much for the suggestions Pablo + Penforhire.

"Words to Bits" sounds great!

But doing a search on Google, you get flooded with hundreds of thousands of hits on programming. I'm thinking it would be hard to find a blog through that jungle.

I'm not convinced you need two separate blogs, although I guess it depends on how often you think you'll be able to maintain both.

I agree with this. Why not just have a single blog that has categories? Tagging, word clouds, whatever? I mean, from my own experience--and I tried this nearly a decade ago, when it was less crowded than it is now--maintaining ONE blog is a big pain.

EVEN FOR YOU, Tex, and your mind-bogglingly prolific self, snookums. Wouldn't it make more sense to just do different posts on different topics, when you feel like it?

I see Blog #1 being relatively more general:

My thoughts on ebooks.

I see this appealing to people who hang out in the technical sections of MobileRead, and the occasional fellow traveler (people searching for solution to Problem X, people who like my MobileRead posts, [...]).

So ebook creation + ebook-related topics of interest.

Where Blog #2 will be heavily specialized:

Ripping apart books and looking at stats.

While there would be overlap (many of the technical people would probably be interested in the stats)... this would be more just analyzing specific books.

No coding discussions, not talking about the general ebook-world, etc.

As the body of posts grows, a reader would then be able to look through the specific areas you are interested in:
  • Genre: Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Detective
  • Author
  • Decades
  • [...]

I think that kind of stuff would just completely clog up Blog #1 if they were both merged. And I (currently) see them as having two distinct readerships.

PS. Speaking of super specific stats stuff, there's the Lord of the Rings Project covering the Lord of the Rings books...

I have an awful feeling that the distinction may be more important (and apparent) to you than to your audience. A bit of skipping over items of less interest is common to internet browsing.

If it was me, I'd keep it all on one just to avoid having to come up with two names!

As someone who has worked with professionally with blogs and websites (maintaining them) for more than a decade*, I heartily agree with gmw, who suggested having one blog.

Websites are hard work. Honestly. So, unless you've got at least 30 posts planned for each and will be actively stockpiling more, consider one blog. It's not as though you've got two totally different topics - they are related. Using tags & categories (and a bit of say, Wordpress whizbangery) you can easily present the information in one blog but keep the content distinct. Also, it could be a cool way of introducing the two topics to each other (e.g. how to nicely display stats etc in HTML).

But content is king. And you'll need lots. If there's not fresh meat often and regular, people just stop coming. Trust me. If I had a valium for every new website I've had to build for someone that "needed" it (instead of incorporating their information into an existing site), I wouldn't want to punch the TV so much when commercials come on. I hate commercials. A lot. Except maybe ones with puppies. And ducks.



* OMG I think it's actually two decades. I'm not sure how that happened!

Well, "Lingo Metrics" is fantastic for the secondary blog. But if I incorporate it all under one umbrella, I still need a great name for the overarching site.

The technical portion would be much slower paced (maybe a biweekly/monthly post). I would want it as an ultimate resource on Topic X... and it takes time to dig through the backlog and reread+gather all the posts on a given topic.

The bulk of the time would be spent hunting down URLs and linking everything, plus coming up with proper examples/images (when I wrote my Formulas Tutorial... WOW, taking good screenshots took forever).

Most likely there would be short->medium-sized posts based on new/old material:

= = = = =

The statistics blog:

I could take book suggestions, and randomly pick and choose from books I've seen mentioned on MobileRead/Reddit. I also think tackling books in a series individually + together would be interesting.

The stats can be generated relatively quickly, and there are always more books to test. Once the methodology is down flat, the same analysis can be applied across books pretty consistently.

Then it's just digging through and trying to find what interesting quirks I could dig up, or new ways to look at old data.

Lately I came up with a method to break things down on a per-chapter level, so I could generate a chart like "# Words per Chapter" across all three Lord of the Rings books:

Blogs don't have to be linear, you could run two strands. For the techie strand I'm thinking maybe a wordplay around the Linotype machine - how about Digital Slugs.

For the actual blog, how about- A Texan Hacks . . . eBooks

Tex, when talking to an Editor buddy this afternoon I mentioned my suggestion for Digital Slug, and the context; she informs me that 'Slug" also has relevance in Newspaper production, and Screenplays.

Yes, it does; and in layout, a "slug" is an area in which you put information about the layout or document you're doing. ;-) Not totally inappropriate for a blog. Although, "Too Sexy for my Slug" probably doesn't have that good old clever name ring to it.

P.S.: Not from Texas.
