A facelift for Fall To Climb?

Clearly I spend way too much time on the internet and blogging and/or thinking about blogging, because the subject at the forefront of my brain right now is the name or “brand” of this blog (unless my advisor is reading this, in which case he should stop reading and go back to whatever he was doing, safe in the knowledge that I am utterly consumed with thoughts of Kug beetles. Seriously. My desk is covered with them at this very moment. Go back to work.)

Now, for the rest of you: I want people to easily find and read this blog. I want to spread entomo-goodness far and wide.  I want to expand my readership and the people in my network, because, frankly, I keep finding more awesome people and things to read out there. I’m very aware that the number of Canadian-based insect blogs is not exactly hefty, and I think it’s time for Canuks to step up and get noticed (because, like, we have bugs too, eh?).

See? A bug! From Canada! Ok, not a bug, a fly (maybe Dryomyza anilis - thanks Morgan!)...but it's definitely an insect!

The name of this blog was selected years ago when I had no idea what the blog would be about. Now that I’ve got a bit of a “thing” going here, it’s clear that the name “Fall to Climb” has little to do with the blog’s current persona.

So I’m thinking, perhaps it’s time for a change.

BUT. If a change means losing touch with the people that I know and love RIGHT NOW, I’m not sure I’m willing to take the risk.

So, please humor me, people I know and love.  What do you all think?
