Imagine my complete and total disappointment (and, frankly, outrage) when I so joyously went to the shop name change page and typed in my universal and versatile name only to see the red print pop up telling me "that name is already in use". By who?? Quick research showed that "By the Book" is a user who signed up in 2007 who has no feedback, which means to me that they are inactive. It was then suggested to me by a few people to contact the person about the name, but here's the rub: because the name has already been used, it can't ever be used again, even if that person was to not use it, because future searches will link the old name to the new name. Frustration!!
And so now here I am again, a week later, pondering the fate of my shop name. Suggestions I have received or thought of on my own:
- By the Book Shop/Market/Boutique
- By the Book Designs
- Always By the Book
- Buy the Book
- By the Book Creations
- The Paper Book
Sorry for two virtually picture-less posts back to back. Lots of pictures tomorrow for Pinterest Thursday!
