Untitled No More

Welcome to the ONE HUNDREDTH POST of your favorite source for nonsense, Untitled Blogger Project words...words...words...!

I wanted to do something cool for my 100th post, and it turns out that "something cool" meant completely re-design and re-title my blog. This was the title I originally had in mind when I started the blog, but the exact web address was not available. I didn't want a blog title that I couldn't have a matching web address for, so I went with "Untitled Blogger Project". It was supposed to be a play on the way movie scripts are titled when they don't have a real title yet. That's also why I was using that lame Courier font that I never liked. But the theme never really came across.

I can hear none of you asking, "So what does the name mean, anyway?" There was an episode of Beavis & Butt-Head where Butt-Head was making a vain attempt to concentrate on his reading. As he went along he mumbled, "words...words...words..." I remembered it because it was funny, and when the internet came around, I thought it aptly described the experience of reading online. People indifferently reading nondescript material that often didn't deserve much more. I imagined people reading my nondescript undeserving blog indifferently, and a name was born.

In a few days, I'm going to change the web address to reflect the new title. So in case you're one of those masochists that reads my blog on a regular basis, I'll come back and edit this post to list the new web address you can punch into your web reading tracking thingy of choice.

Thanks, and I hope you like the new blog!

Woah!! *blink*

Very nice! *blink*

Can I just say that I really liked your old design too?

Well I said it anyway, so there!

Congrats on the big 100! :) May there be hundreds more.

I bought a copy of A Midsummer Night's Dream and there's a section called "Words, Words, Words..." about the language of Shakespeare's time versus today.

I read it and chuckle to myself, as if sharing a joke with me that only I get.

Sometimes, I get lonely at night is all I'm saying.

Congrats on your 100th and especially on the new design/name change! Will be checking back for the new address and looking forward to many hundreds more words! :)

Oh, congrats! I lost track of my 100th post, and then forgot about celebrating my 200th. And you know, at my pace, I probably have missed the 300th as well. >.<

Morgan the Muse said...

Oh, and I understood what you were going for on your old thing. But I do like your new layout. It looks nice.

Kimmie said...

Love it!! Congrats! Lotsa hard work here.

Oooh! The header looks great. Well done.

You realize you changing your address means there are 2 (2!) places I'll have to update your info? You really want to do that to me?!?

Some Guy said...

Congrats on your first 100! I always enjoy reading your stuff.

Dr Zibbs said...

Cora said...

I thought I was lost for a second there, Words! *whew* I'm loving the new look though. Bravo. Nice job.

Let us know when you've changed the address so I can stalk you once more. ;-)

And happy 100th!!!!

I have not been drinking.

Gwen said...

Congrats on the 100. I love, love, love the new layout. Excellent work, my friend.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Words, this is a flagrant violation of our trust. I told you there was no way you could use that photo of my old lady...

Whatever.

Soda and Candy said...

Also, the new background looks badass on my home computer but looked weird on my work one. Stupid non-uniform web browsers

I wouldn't call myself a masochist necessarily.

More an "obsessively obsessed stalker fan of low expectations"

teehee
