I’ve been thinking about changing the name of my blog for a while now. I’ve never really liked the name “Sprawly”, but at the time I got tired of trying to think of a name, gave up, and went with that. I’m not going to change the URL of this blog, so the name change won’t affect any of the wonderful people that are following it.
I went over to WordLab, which is a really cool place to find names, generate names, etc. I made a list of a bunch of candidates and then narrowed it down as best I could. Luckily I’m down to just four now. But I’m having a hard time deciding. I’m wondering what y’all think is the best. So I thought I’d try out a poll. I haven’t done a poll before so this would also be a learning experience for me.
I read up on putting a poll in a post, and promptly forgot most of it. I thought there was suppose to be a button here somewhere where I could add one. I’m not finding it. Guess I need to go back to the help document and re-read the procedure. Like it’s some kind of surgery or something.
Ok. Got it figured out. Finally. Maybe it WAS some kind of surgery. There’s no button to add a poll at the top of the editor, (or anywhere actually) like the support doc says. Thanks WP, btw. I got the poll created through the dashboard, and saved. But I didn’t know how to get it into this post. Finally, after much trial and error, I found the shortcode widget here in the editor and used it in a block with the shortcode of the poll. Checked it on the preview and the poll is there. Just hope it works now.
This might be a dumb idea. It wouldn’t be the first one I’ve had, so not a new experience. But still, y’all might think they’re all stupid, and that would be disappointing. And there’s the possibility that the poll might only get 2 or 3 votes (you know who you are). But really, I’m a full-grown adult, so WTH, it’s not gonna kill me. If you haven’t guessed, I have a bad habit of second-guessing myself. I hate that I do that.
Maybe you’d be interested to hear why I ended up with these four names? Maybe not. I should just let you interpret them in your own way. Feel free to comment if you’d like.
