Brief administrative update: I’ve changed the title of this blog – or rather, I’ve shortened it to “classroom as microcosm” because, well, it’s shorter, and because people are having trouble spelling “Siobhan.” The url remains “siobhancurious.wordpress.com”. Am I going to be sorry I did this? Is it going to cause confusion/complications for readers/subscribers? I have no idea how this stuff works.

I don’t think the name matters–the subscription feed would be based on the URL rather than the display name.
I think you’ll be fine, though I really liked ‘Siobhan Curious’ — it had flair.
Thanks guys. OKP: really? I might change it back. The whole thing doesn’t fit nicely in the header bar, though, and I feel like the “classroom as microcosm” aspect is important. We’ll see.
Maybe Siobhan isn’t tough for me ’cause I lived in Ireland for a year. ‘C.a.M.’ is a better descriptor, but ‘S.C.’ is what made me curious.
But YOU are the person who owns the space here. Do what you want — I’ll still read!
Thanks for entering my Grammar Girl contest. I may have never found your blog otherwise. I love crossing cyber paths with awesome folks! 🙂
Hmmm… I have heard that changing the title of the blog causes confusion when the URL is different; however, I still visit and come across blogs all the time who have done it–and seem to be doing quite well.
Thanks for coming by! I’ve subscribed to “Writing the Cyber Highway” and am looking forward to reading more of it; I really liked what I read on my first visit, particularly your post on attitudes toward blogging. For anyone who’s interested, here’s a link:
Siobhan: Thank you for your kind words–and for the link! 🙂
And, thank you for subscribing as well!!
It is coming up fine in my google reader!
Thanks Pat! I’ll leave everything as is for now.
