What's In A Name?

I was going over the blogger list on Iggy's site, when I noticed two things. First, I'm not on it, even though I was for a while. =( Secondly, there are a few poker blogs with similar titles. There's Poker - It's Life, Life's a Grind, and The Poker Game of Life among others.

Now, I'm not a writer, so I don't know if writers go through this or not. But I've always had a hard time coming up with a title for whatever I write. And it's not that I don't like my blog's title or whatever, but it seems that it's too similar to other blogs. And while there's nothing wrong with being similar, I wish my blog would stand out a bit from the other generic poker titles around.

It's inevitable, with the recent boom in poker and blogs, that blogs will bear resemblances to one another's titles. I mean, there's only so many phrases one can use when one wants to equate poker to life as I intended to when I first created this blog. (By the way, not to nitpick or anything, but I had this blog title before any of the other guys so don't think that I bit off any of their names.)

So I'm trying to come up with a new title for my blog. I'll still keep my id as "pokerlife" as it's up on the WPBT board. But I'll be coming up with a new name soon. Time to put on my thinking cap. =/
