And the Winner Is…

June 1, 2010

After a weekend of weighing in on the name of this blog, we have an overwhelming winner (and a few funny suggestions- healthcliff anyone?)

As soon as the internet geniuses here figure out how to change the name, this blog will no longer be “The Healthcareblog.”

And it won’t be called “Does This Blog Look Infected? Which is maybe too funny for my purposes, but so awesome someone should use it.

No, the name of this blog will be…


Credit goes to Alec Becket, who suggested the name a few weeks ago.  Alec is actually a professional at this sort of thing. He works for Nail, the communications/advertising group that recently launched the popular Nothing Campaign to raise money for the RI food bank. The idea got a lot of good press, even in the NYtimes. But he offered his name for this blog just like everyone else did, by posting a comment.

You can kind of say Alec cheated, because he’s a professional at this.  But then again, I cheated by getting his services for free!

Alec- you are a brilliant genius who has saved this blog from its terribly bland name.  Thank you for transforming “The Healthcare Blog” into “The Pulse.” Would you like to do any other work  for free?  Maybe throw in a nice logo?

And thanks to everyone else for your great ideas, especially the ones that made me laugh.  Perhaps we’ll rotate through some of the funny ones for April Fools Day or some other occasion.

    I’m exhausted just reading this Blog, (LOL). It is as tiring as running up and down the “Great Hidden Mountainous Hills of Cranston Rhode Island.”

    I’m sorry I missed the Blog naming contest. Isn’t The Pulse Trademarked already? I mean… come on.

    How about:
    “The Extremely Handsome Guy Blog”
    “Unprecedented Candor Health Guy Blog”

    Good luck on the Blog :}

    Oh yes! Dee Dee deserves credit too! She also suggested using “Pulse” somewhere in the title. Thank you Dee Dee!
