Change name or not? - You Decide

No, not my last name. That won't be for a few weeks. I'm talking my screen name.

Maidink always looked at bit off to me. Now the name itself does have meaning so I'm not changing it completely. I'm just tweaking it.

I figured it had to be the "K". Not only is maidink pronounced with a hard "c" sound but it looks like it. That never settled well with me; so, I decided to change the "K" to a "C". Visually, it just looks better. At least to me.

But I just didn't want to go and change my name without everyone else throwing in their two bits (I know it should be cents but I'm factoring in inflation). So here is your chance to let me know yay or nay.

Yes, it's the first LFEA Survey (cue the canned audience clapping). It's really easy. Just click the link in the sidebar, answer the question, and voila! You are done.

Results will be posted next Monday.

damn I missed my chance to vote

Maidink said...

Rowan, you goober! I just posted this today.

Oh! Now I see the confusion. I forgot to change my screen name back.

Sorry, my bad.

I was experimenting with how it looked with the different spelling.

You can still vote. So as long as the link is there, you can vote.

took poll. thank you.

Maidink said...

No, thank you!!!

Rowan said...

ahhhh! found it, yeah, i'm a goober, been a while since I've been called that! ha! nice!

CrankyProf said...

I like the "K."

But I think it goes with "Dinkerdoodle." It ust wouldn't look the same if it was "Dincerdoodle."

PaxRomano said...

I voted for the "k" .

Maidinc sounds too much like a corporation!

Maidink said...

Rowan - Hee-hee-hee. Would you rather I call you knucklehead?

CP - LOL!! I see your point!

Pax - You're right. I believe there is a cleaning service with that name.

Now I feel silly. I voted for Maidink, but only because I've been reading your name wrong all of these weeks! I was reading an extra "l" in there: MaidLink. Maid-Link.

Maybe I need glasses! :p

leap_b4_ulook said...

Oh, yeah, one more thing--Love your new photo! :o)

The Humanity Critic said...

a little change is a good thing.

Anonymous said...

I voted earlier today, but, yep, gotta say it here: I'm for Maidink! Keep the "k"...

How about Maidlinç....then you could be Brazilian!

tescosuicide said...

I've said it both ways 50 times now (each) and I can't hear the difference... and my wife wants to kill me.

Virginia Gal said...

I voted also - I love voting and taking polls, it's like popping those packaging bubbles for me :-)

Maidink said...

LB4UL - A lot of people miss spell it so you're not alone. I get maidnik (my favorite misspell from Pax), madink, miadnk (that one still floors me), and madnik. Now adding a letter,that's a different story. I'll e-mail you a LensCrafters coupon :)

And thank you on the picture.

THC - Thank you for stopping by. Change is good but I wanted my readers to have a voice in this one.

Moxie - you're not alone in that opinion.

Sangroncito - I'd love to be Brazilian; alas, I don't think my computer can handle using the cedilla accent all the time.

I always thought that accent was only in the French language. It's in Portuguese, too?

VG - You like popping that stuff too? I truly believe 85% of the population enjoys that past time. Just for that, my next post is for you.

Tesco - It's a VISUAL thing, you goof. It would still be pronounced the same. ALa should kill you. I'd kill you too!

Tony said...

What? Tony's LoveBitch was taken?

:-)

Belinda said...

I dunno, when I saw them both written like that...one suggests a writer to me, and the other, that you do in fact own your own maid service.

Maidink said...

Tony - From what I understand, there is a waiting list for that title. ;)

Belinda - yeah, well, it looks like the company lost.
