There’s a poll in the top right corner of this page (you’ll have to click through if you’re reading via RSS) that will allow you to vote for your favorite web address that could potentially be the new home of this blog.
…you know, unless one of you jerks goes and buys all these domains right now just to make me mad.
But this is the best I’ve come up with. Let me know if you like any of the options. Let me know if you don’t. If you’ve got a better idea, I’d love to hear it in the comments.
In case you’re interested, here’s a little bit of commentary about my thoughts about each of them:
- theSingleSpeed.net / Single-Speed.us – these are both second-best attempts at finding a way to retain the blog name SingleSpeed. Neither of them are ideal because I have never hyphenated this name, or used “the” with it before. I’m also a little concerned that this name doesn’t correctly give the right impression to people. I think the URL should scream “click this if you want to visit some guy’s personal blog!” If I saw either of those addresses somewhere, I probably wouldn’t suspect they were addresses to a personal blog. Rather, I would suspect it would take me to some page about singlespeed bikes. (for example, click on SingleSpeed.org and consider whether the content of that page is what you were expecting).
- ReubensCube.net / RubeWithAView.com – I think these names are sort of clever, and the benefit is that I think they are both great names for personal blogs – nobody will be confused by the content of these pages. The downside is that it doesn’t retain the blog title SingleSpeed that has had such a profound impact on our lives.
