In looking around at Babelhut.com, I discovered that my blog isn’t the only one entitled “Language Geek.” Indeed, on Babelhut’s blogroll, I’m “Language Geek 2,” logically appearing right after “Language Geek 1.” As I rightly should be, by the way; looking at Language Geek’s archives (the other Language Geek’s archives, not mine!), it appears they’ve been at language blogging since 2005. Drat. That makes me the name thief (even though it wasn’t intentional). And here I was, thinking I was the only one who (proudly) called himself a “language geek.” Oops.
Now I’m wondering whether I should change the title of my blog. What do you folks think? I don’t really want to, because I’ve obviously already bought the domain name, languagegeek.net. On the other hand, I hate to be called Language Geek 2 (or cause someone else to be called Language Geek 1!)
I suppose a subdomain or a simple addon folder (languagegeek.net/namethief) would be fine.
