A New Name For This Site in 2006
Many, many factors have gone into this decision but, after getting the opinions of my fellow bloggers and other political and media professionals, I have decided to drop the "Yellow Dog Blog" identity and enter the new year as BobGeiger.com.
Many of you are going to yell "But I love the dog!" So do I. And, while not curing cancer or solving the riddle of Middle East peace, this has been a difficult decision for me.
But I have very specific professional goals -- including writing a book in 2006 -- and, while I understand that I have built a recognizable brand identity in the Yellow Dog, I strongly believe I can help myself and the Democratic/Progressive cause by making this change.
What does this mean to you, the reader? Not a darned thing.
I will be back stronger and more obnoxious than ever in 2006 and all of your favorites – from the Osama Clock, to the Friday Fruitcakes, to the Saturday cartoons – will remain the same. While the name is changing, the content, attitude and intent will be what you've come to expect. My two primary URLs -- bobgeiger.blogspot.com and bobgeiger.com -- will, of course, stay the same as well.
Thank you for your support in this endeavor.
Here's wishing all of you and your families a happy, healthy 2006.
