Name This Blog!

November 23, 2011

question_mark.jpgFrom the very start of Folk Alley, this blog has been a central feature of what we do. Although, even we have to admit, there was a lot less of what we do now way back in 2003. As the FA team looks forward to a site redesign LIKE THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN, we are asking you to help give our blog a proper name as it becomes its own section of FolkAlley.com. What do we mean by a "name?" Check out the NPR Music blogs. They have Ann Powers' The Record, Bob Boilen's All Songs Considered, the jazz blog A Blog Supreme - these names give the blog a real space and presence. They also relate to the music and the genre in an interesting way (I'm voting for Monkeypants - it's a take on a Neil Young song about a guy who smuggled monkeys into the country by hiding them in his pants).

Post your ideas below. We will compile the list and let you all have a vote to determine the winner!

"Alley Chat" (I submitted this over on Facebook, but thought maybe it was proper to officially post it here.)

Hi Dannielle -- Folk Alley's monthly e-newsletter is already called 'Alley Chat,' so that's already being put to good use. Please feel free to post any more suggestions you have though! Thanks, Linda

Hi, I commented on facebook before but this seems the right place to make a suggestion: How about
"Alley's Grapevine" ? Got to go back to my bookmarking now,
thanks for the music!!

Front Porch

I like Traci Robinette's "Folk Yeah!"

How about:

"Back (or Front) Porch Posts"

Maybe

"Porch Music Posts"

or

"Strings & Things" or "Wood & Wires", "Wood, Wires & Words"

Ok , that's enough. I could go on forever......
