I’ve been thinking of renaming the blog.
There are a number of reasons. The first is that I’m not so “neo” anymore. After all, my political conversion was pretty much complete in 2003, and that’s almost a decade and a half ago.
The second is that “neocon” has long been a word people throw around without knowing its meaning, and certainly without knowing my definition of it in writing this blog (which I’ve explained in several posts under the “neocons” category). So it attracts a lot of trolls who have no idea what I’m about. Now, they say that any attention is good attention, but I don’t think the people who say that know much about trolls.
The problem with changing the name of the blog is the usual problem with change: I’m known by this name and a change can confuse people. Plus, it’s a real nuisance to do it. Another reason is that I can’t think of a good alternative.
So I thought I’d throw the question out to you folks. What do you think? Should I change the blog name? And if so, to what?
