Warning: Possible site weirdness ahead
So Crabby realizes her site name is too damn long, and she needs to do something about that before she starts getting all cocky and submitting herself to search engines and such. She won't change the URL, so any links that have been created will stay the same. But the whole Crabby McSlacker's Real World Guide to etc etc may ending up being a subtitle rather than the official site title. The real title may be something more simple like Cranky Fitness, in keeping with the blogspot domain name.
If anyone has any strong opinions about this, be advised to communicate them quickly. Crabby might ignore them or she might take them very seriously, but either way you will feel better for having vented.
So in an attempt to do something about a title change and header renovation over the weekend, Crabby may end up totally hosing the site up. Crabby is a "geek" only in the sense of being socially awkward, not in the useful sense of having any technical aptitude. The thought of going in the template and messing around with the HTML makes her queasy. She is also going to do some blogroll updating and try to figure out what the whole meta tag business is about.
And while it hasn't been quite a full week yet (Crabby wrote her first post on Sunday and invited the world in on Tuesday) Crabby would like to say to her visitors and commenters THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH! Yes, she is shouting, because she means it. What a wonderful group of people she is discovering in her cyber wanderings.
UPDATE: Many thanks for all for your helpful suggestions. Crabby has decided to go with Cranky Fitness. The subtitle is not set in stone and could well change again, either on a whim or if everyone hates it.
Crabby is also beginning to realize that she needs to stop rushing into the comments section every few minutes and responding individually to each one, both for her own health and to keep from driving you all crazy. She will be reading them and cherishing each one and occasionally stopping in to respond, but perhaps not so obsessively anymore.
