Blog name change

I've been thinking about it for a while; whether I should keep calling the blog "andersja's blog" or change it...

andersja was the username I was assigned when I studied at NTNU, and it kind of stuck with me... We still refer to some fellow alumni and fellow co-workers at the time (I used to be a sys admin) by their usernames. Hence, naming my blog "andersja" was a hint at the past and a unique reference to myself (there are, for example, more than 50 Anders Jacobsens, just in Norway(!)).

Still, my URL has always given my full name away, and the last couple of months I've been signing more and more comments with my first or full name instead of my nickname, so I made the change this morning: this weblog will from now on be referred to as "Anders Jacobsen's Blog" or, for short (for blogrolls etc) "Anders Jacobsen".

Happy blogging!

"this weblog will from now on be referred to as 'Anders Jacobsen's Blog' or, for short (for blogrolls etc) 'Anders Jacobsen'."

that is, referred to by *you* with that name -- lots of weblogs are listed on my blogroll with words not intended by their owners.

I'll try to remember to make the change.

I've been thinking about changing mine too.. either that or really going all out with the blending theme. I wish I were better at graphics to exploit that theme more.

But I'm with thushara on your blog's name change. The content is what matters!

Anita; sure - I won't go out and hunt people who don't update their blogrolls nor the people that refer to me by other names :-)

Eliot: Thanks for your comments on the content :-)

"I won't go out and hunt people ... that refer to me by other names."

Wouldn't that depend on what names they are calling you?

Adam, you are right... :-P
