I thank you so much for reading here every week. If you feel like thanking me, I would welcome you to do me a huge favor.
In addition to visual changes, my plan is to improve my title and tag lines. This is a BIG decision and I will benefit from help making it. And so I am asking you all. (My own personal focus group.)
My first decision is the blog title. Pizazz is important. I am looking for something that grabs people’s attention and maybe makes them smile.
The second decision is the tag line. I want “self-explanatory” meets “charming”, with a hint of entertainment.
Here are some ideas for you
to make fun of vote on, (Or give me a new idea). If you want to suggest something privately you can email me at jodiaman (at) yahoo (dot) com.
1. Won World
Where everything belongs (especially you!)
Countering competition, limitless love
I also thought of “Love every kit and caboodle.” and really liked it. My husband told me it makes him think of a poodle. So…
This title is obviously a play on One World, but “won” is suggestive of a win-win world, rather than a win-lose world since so many of our problems stem from feeling a sense of un-belonging or not good enough. I like it because it undermines competition, and connects us all. In my mind it includes being one with the natural world. It also verbally flows well if I add another word describing the different projects, (i.e., Won World Business, Won World Retreats, Won World Counseling.)
On the other hand, even though I mean it to undermine competition, it is still using and acknowledging a word like “Won”. Do you all think this is OK? Plus, it is a drastic departure from what is current. Does this mean starting a new FB page? Ugh!
2. Heal Here
My son and I came up with this while we were thinking of a pun cartoon of a dog siting at his owners ankles with a bandage on. “Heal, boy!” Or just “Heal!”
Then, I thought of “Heal Here” since I liked the tag line “Where everything belongs (especially you)” and “here” suggests a location. I thought there could be a heart behind the word “here”. Something like this.
(You can tell me the truth, I can handle it: Is it dork-city?)
The benefit would be that it has the word “heal” in it and maybe would be an easier transition.
More tag lines:
Changing the world through heart.
Inspiring love, inclusion, and peace. (I like it but there is not much of an entertainment factor.)
3. The Inclusive Equation
This is what I came up with a “branding” consultant. It is unique! And I loved it at first but now wonder if sort of awkward. He assures me that it will grow on me. What do you all think?
The word “inclusive” very much describes my view on healing: Seeing the Divine in everything and knowing everything is connected. It would work well with the other elements (i.e., Inclusive Business, Inclusive Healing, Inclusive World, Inclusive Socks.)
My major idea- which I hope may someday be a book-can be described as the “Inclusive Equation.” It is basically about creating inner and outer peace (since they are the same thing) through connection, love, trust, and forgiveness. Maybe that is the tag line…
Creating peace through connection, love, trust, and forgiveness.
I hope it’s a place where tired and weary souls come for inspiration, counsel, and a lightening of their load-through laughter and a sense of community.
Over to you. I leave the brainstorm in your hands, minds, and hearts. Give me some love.
