Despite my continuing PC problems, I felt like sharing a good laugh with my readers.
Back when I was working on this blog, before launch, I spent some time thinking about the name.
The rule of thumb is, give your blog a name that’s original, on-topic and impossible to misspell.
It took me some time but finally I hit on a concept (the caravanserai, the place where travellers meet, rest and trade stories) and a suitably original name.
Yes, there’s a hotel out there with the same name.
And a minimal spelling difference would have taken you to a supplier of belly dance costumes and accessories.
But let’s just say that Karavansara is a good name.
Easy to remember.
Or so I thought.
Yesterday, I found this blog listed as Karavansahara.
Now that would have been a great name!
It would have opened the whole of North Africa as a possible topic for my posts!
I mean… Sahara… North Africa… would have been good.
And I’m pretty sure there’s no other blog with a name like that.
What a missed opportunity!
In other topics: another good rule of thumb is, try to get my blog name right if you want me to take your criticism seriously.

It used to happen all the time with my nickname as well.
But honestly, I haven’t picked the easiest one to spell out 🙂

Yes, I’m sure Cthulhu feels the same way 😉
But with a modicum of attention the problem can usually be avoided.
And yet, Karavansahara… ah!
