Name that blog

A client of mine is trying to name a new blog. It’s going to be a magazine about IT, outsourcing, global technology services… that kind of thing. It’s a big IT firm and they are sponsoring the new blog, but giving me editorial control so it doesn’t just come across as a bunch of promotional blogs saying ‘this firm is great, work with us’…

We are trying to coin a name, but don’t want it to be too cliched – connecting, debate, forum… all those words have been bounced around and rejected. So we need something about conversation or debate, but without it being in the name. Confused? Well, it might be that a new word made up of two words joined together could work.

If you have any ideas and we use one then I’m sure I can convince the client to send a nice prize your way…

Please help the Migrant Tales book project!

The Migrant Tales group on Facebook is starting to get some serious interest. Soon after being set up there are already 120 fans of the book and many ideas starting to flow. But we need more.

I’m starting to contact the editors of various diaspora magazines. You know the free magazines you see scattered around London, mainly outside stations, all focused on a specific migrant community. Where I live in Ealing there are several magazines catering to the local Polish community, nearby in Shepherd’s Bush there are mags for the Kiwi and Aussies.

I need your help to reach out to as many of these diaspora publications as possible. I need to reach their editors to tell them about the book project so they can tell their readers – so we can draw more stories and experiences from these people.

Please get in touch with me if you have a copy of any of these magazines to hand and you can send me the contact email for the title – either leave a comment here on this blog or get in touch with me directly…

Thanks for your help in advance!
