need your help!

Friends, need your advice. I've been thinking about changing my blog name for a while now but am not sure if I should do it. When I started blogging over a year ago - I threw my blog up without really thinking. I chose 'Let Me Help You Help Me' because I started the blog to put all my random and useless knowledge out there for others to consume. It was never as personal as I had wished but now I'm wondering if it's too late to change it.
Here are the options:

1. Leave it as is: Let Me Help You Help Me

2. Shorten it: Help You Help Me (this would match the URL)

3. Change it completely: Oh Captain, My Captain

Number 3 is more personal because my close friends from college called me Captain and it has stuck with me ever since. (You probably guessed but yes, it originated because of Captain Morgan Rum) It's also an ode to my favorite movie Dead Poet's Society.

So what do you think? Too late to change? Stick with the 'brand' I've built? Or make it more personal and move forward from there.
Leave a comment and let me know!
xoxo

I kind of like the idea of naming it Oh Captain, My Captain! Or Help you help me.

Tough call, but i say go ahead and change it! And when you do, you should use blogger and purchase your .com. That's what I did for kinseym and it's wonderful! It only costs 10$ a year and no work is involved on your part other than paying for the name!

2. or keep it as 1. It suits your blog very well, and when I think captain, I think of all the boat captains at Salty Mike's or George's Sports Bar.

#3 so cute and personal.

can i be honest...the captain one is not my fav. i like it as is or shortening it to help you help me.

either way, i'll still keep reading :)

change it. it will be even more illustrious than the time jennifer lopez changed her name to j lo. you can be "help you help me, the blog formerly known as let me help you help me" teehee.

but seriously.

if you want to change it, change it! it's your blog and you can do anything you want!!

You can always keep the url the same and change the title. I'm all about having a touch of something personal + I love the title "oh captain, my captain!"

Definitely change it, it is too long already. I like the third one (I'm a sucker for Dead Poets Society).

Deep question my friend... my first thought was don't change it. It's been this for so long and people know it as this... but then I thought? Really? It's a blog! It's supposed to be about what makes you happy... and it's your thing. So change away! I adore number three. And I would like to put on the record that my father called you Captain Schnee long before you got the nickname from your fab Madtown friends. So in other words, the name is simply you. Go for it!!

I like #2 ... it reminds me less of the movie Jerry Maguire -- although I guess the line Tom Cruise says is actually "Help Me Help You". :-P
