of blog names and christmas

Ravikiran writes about weblog names, and how it is hard to come up with an original title for a new weblog:

…of course, we early bloggers who are responsible for this. Firstly, we’ve taken all the good ones and secondly, the new bloggers think that they have to have some dramatic sounding name to get people’s attention. So we now have names like “The daily random ruminations of a demented maverick maniac” which, unfortunately, tells us only one thing – the blog has started recently and that they have expended all their imagination on the name.

This blog (and this website) has always been called Arnab’s World, a rather trite and generic title that many of my namesakes’ weblogs share. However, the advantage of having such a title is that you can’t really get bored of it; after all half of it is a word you’ve been trained to accept and love for the rest of your life. Changing it to a catchy “Notes from Las Vegas” would be nice, but it lacks permanency, I tend to get bored of my creativity very quickly.

Of course, “Notes from Las Vegas” would be a very apt title for this weblog during Christmas; for that is when yours truly will be trying to forget the horrifying semester that was, numbing his frayed nerves on the rides aboard the Stratosphere.

In other words, I have the most awesome cousin on this planet.
