Why www.thesuzette.com?

Published by at 11:27 am under All,Blogging

Many asked me why I don’t want to maintain www.lzbone.com since the domain is available. I don’t know. Probably because one of these:

  • someone feels lzbone is not professional
  • someone said “you don’t sound that lazy to me”, meaning people really associate me with laziness. Not a good idea, isn’t it?
  • someone calls me “Auntie Lazy Bone”, very odd when addressed in person.
  • So, since I am revamping my blog, might as well seriously consider renaming. Furthermore, when I was getting the name lzbone, I wasn’t really serious about blogging. A good time to change!

    Why Suzette? Well, actually Suzette is a type of crepe dessert. I have never seen the real thing and I have never tasted it, though I know where I can get it. But I think the name is kind of nice, like a lady’s name. So, I have decided to go around ‘Suzette’.

    But then, both the suzette.com and .net were taken. Then I tried suzetteS.com and .net, both also taken.

    So, I have decided to go with one of the followings:

  • www.thesuzette.com
  • www.the_suzette.com
  • www.suzette_blogs.com
  • www.suzette_talks.com
  • I actually quite like www.suzette_blogs.com but have decided to run a quick poll for 1 day. I have asked a few people to vote. Everyone has different opinion, and finally www.thesuzette.com got ONE vote more than the rest. Have to take it then.

    Reasons given by voters:

    “La lar larm get this one lah, difficult to get one that you like without ‘-’ or ‘_’”
    “Easy to remember”
    “Not only limited to blog or talk”
    “The Star also use thestar.com(.my)”

    Why .com instead of .net?

    “Sometimes the search engine will not find .net one…”
    “I always presume people’s website only ends with .com?” (perception)
    “I only search .com”
    And most sifu’s from MBF go for .com!

    That’s how I ended up settled with www.thesuzette.com.
