I changed my blog name this week and no one got me a gift or anything. I blame Miley Cyrus.
It’s now Marinka NYC instead of Motherhood in NYC. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. For one, as my kids get older, they don’t love my blogging about them. And for another, I’m such an egomaniac, why shouldn’t I get more play in the header? And for a third, I’m hoping this will reduce the number of “Dear Mommyblogger” PR pitches that I receive. I mean, I know these people have a job to do, but unless they’re offering an evening with Ryan Gosling, I’m not interested.
What I am interested in knowing is why people sign their emails. I’m not Sherlock Holmes or anything but generally when I receive an email I can figure out who it’s from. There are clues, you know. Like the email address. Or the fact that the person is a friend. Or a “friend”. And then, while I was wondering this, I got an email from someone who reads this blog and she asked me a question and after I responded, I signed it with my name.
I forgave myself because it was my first exchange with this particular person, but slippery slope, right?
