This whole dealio sprouted from a one-woman piece I created, and called “Waste Management: The Show.” The title totally captured what the show was about. Then I dropped the performance aspect and launched “Waste Management: The Blog.” It seemed like a fine name at the time.
But now this blog isn’t just about waste anymore. It’s not even just about the environment. Because . . . Trump.
It’s also about the White House, and the U.N., and womanhood, and race, and economics and my parents and my taxi drivers, and what I had for lunch today (some leftover soup and a lovely mashed avocado toast — nom-nom). And the environment (because I think EVERYTHING is about the environment), and maybe having a laugh while trying to figure out how to save the world.
So that’s one issue. Another one is that it’s hard for newcomers to find this via the Google machine, since there’s a company called Waste Management, and they have their own blog, too. Go ‘head: try finding my blog from scratch. You can even put my name in your search. The blog of some witch who’s also named Deb Castellano pops up. And I’m not putting her down — I mean she’s actually a Wiccan.
So . . . help! I need a new domain name. Who’s good at this? Because I’m apparently terrible at it. I’ll get to your reward down below. Meantime, here’s my wish list . . .
- Also: available (obviously).
- And ideally, available on Twitter and Instagram as well. (This one’s tricky!!)
So let’s say you think PlanetDeb.com might be a fitting domain name. See if it’s up for grabs, and share it in the comments. I’m open to all ideas!
I’ve come up with — and rejected — several myself, like Waste-tastic.com (too specific), CitizenDeb.com (taken on Twitter), Debocracy.com (ditto), Democrazy.com (which could be mine for $3,900), DebSavesTheWorld.com (eh), AndAnotherThing.com . . . Pithy domain names just elude me; I’m more of a long-form kinda gal.
And hey, if you DO come up with the new name: dinner is on me!! And I’ll put your picture in my next post — a super flattering one. Or you can just bask in the glory of being an awesomely clever person. Up to you.
Leave your ideas in the comments! Ready . . . GO!!
