Time for a new name?


So as this Blog is now almost reaching both 4 years old and a half million views (Bots!, Bloody Bots I tell Ya!) I'm pondering a Blog name change to reflect on it's now more open/random nature of my posts.

When I first started this it was all about Oldhammering on a ummm budget, hence the rather simple naming decision.

As it currently stands I'm not that attached/involved in the scene anymore having done everything my nostalgia wanted. So there isn't much 'hammering let alone old.

So should I change the name?

What should I change it too?

Or should I stay with the name and pay homage to the roots of which it came from?

Hmmm

Whats your thoughts?

Ta Ta for now.

  1. Hmm. How diverse would you say your interests have become? Is this going to be renamed after your latest line of interest or more general?
    I would say something like `Chicos's Wargaming Webcave' !

    1. My tastes are now very diverse from Historic to Sci Fi so I agree if I do go for a name change it'll be a more general Wargaming feel, something like what you suggested :)

  2. I'm in the same situation, Chico - my blog is called "Oldenhammer in Toronto" and often wander far beyond Citadel games and minis. But, for me, Oldhammer is a big tent and the name accurately reflects my overall aesthetic.
    So, as far as Oldhammer on a Budget goes, I don't think you can make a wrong choice. You'll always be Oldhammer at heart.

    1. Yeah I can't remember the last time I posted something in the flavour/aesthetic or style of Oldhammer no matter how loose the term is used. Tis a Tricky one.

  3. Wow, its almost a case of too many directions to go in!. With the net so wide i get what you mean about the Oldhammer bit, but this oldhammer thing is more concerned with the way stuffs done rather than manufacturers or settings. I reckon put a question mark after oldhammer and your golden!

    1. Yeah I agree about how it's about how stuffs done rather then a set game or system but it's still getting hard justifying labling everything under the Oldhammer Brand.

  4. I'd be reluctant to change name...it's part of what you've built here.

    1. Indeed I am very reluctant to change the name (If I do that is) as it's been with me for 4 years and that's what the followers choose to follow.

  5. "Chico's Pants"

    Just to confuse people.

    Name change is something I've been considering too of late. Something short and sweet like Average Painting or some such

  7. I'd keep it Chico. I know precisely what to expect from this blog having followed it for so long, and don't mind the creep away from your original conception - it happens to us all; look at me I'm painting/gaming more "GW" stuff than ever before :-)

  8. That's a tough one. I went through the reverse as I started what was a general artsy blog and it gradually turned into a wargaming blog. (Of mostly oldhammering.) I changed the name, but your mileage may vary. And either way, I wish you the best of luck. :) It's a tough decision, but I don't doubt that you will continue to post lovely stuff either way. Just make sure we all have a good redirect. ;-)

    1. Yeah it's a pain in the bum setting up a Blog name change with the settin g up redircts and chaning all links to the Blog. I'll continue to post typos and blurry pics ;)

  9. I have no real suggestions Chico, but know I will enjoy your posts as I have done the past few years. I will be tuning in to whatever you choose as your new blog name, good luck :-)
