What’s My Line?

A good name can get you far in life.  Apple.  Elvis.  Madonna.  Nike.  But, a great tagline can get you remembered.  I am not a crook.  You like me, you really like me!  I’m lovin’ it.   Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.

In the Blog-O-Sphere, you need to have a great title to attract readers to your sight.  Even with posts, you must be creative, witty, and informative when labeling each and every article.  “A Post About Doctors” is not nearly as fun and enticing as “Turn Your Head and Cough.” A great title can help or hinder a sight from rising to great heights.

When thinking up a moniker for your site, however, there is a sub-title which can be applied, as well.  This is called the tagline, and it serves to offer another label to define your blog.  The taglines I’ve seen have typically been humorous, or even straight to the point.  A blog about travel.  A site for mothers.  Straight from the horse’s mouth.  Over the river and through the woods. A few more words to leave you with to give the blog more character.  Simple and effective.

For the past 2 months, Miracle on 32nd Street has exhibited a very festive holiday theme, which was retired for the season this past Monday.  I also updated my blog picture, opting to also store away the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree logo until next November.  I’m beginning to take down the rest of the holiday remnants, which will be completed by the end of the week, but there is one item that leaves me scratching my head:  the tagline.

“The Force is strong with this one…”

In an earlier post, I previously blogged about my affinity for Wegman’s Grocery Stores:  it is an ongoing love affair between shopper and supermarket that has spanned the test of time for nearly 8 years.  Wegman’s makes food even more exciting than it already is (how is that possible?!?), and I usually end up leaving the store with more in my cart than I intended to buy.  Cinnamon pumpkin cream cheese?? Sure! Add it to my cart!  Cranberry Spice Holiday bread?? Gladly purchased!

However, I also share a great deal of love for another Titan of the Supermarket Gods.  If Wegman’s makes food more exciting, then Wal-Mart makes buying items you didn’t even know you needed more exciting.  It is a clown car of random items that are, simultaneously, useful and cheap!  (And typically, unnecessary…I mean, c’mon…did I really need to buy a Thanksgiving Pilgrim Hat for my dog?  DON’T answer that.)

Puppy Costume

This purchase was TOTALLY justified...dog not included...

So, when I caught wind of a new Wal-Mart Super Center being built in our town, I was only too excited to make my initial pilgrimage to our shiny new Mecca.  Of course, I had my reservations:  would the new store’s status as a “Super Wal-Mart” detract from the items it offered?  Would it be mobbed with holiday shoppers?  And for God’s sake, would there still be an Ice-E machine?!?

Supermarket

And the Lord God said, let there be discount...

If there’s a sucker born every minute, Wal-Mart saw me coming a mile away…

How sad is it that I couldn’t even get past the main entryway without spending ten dollars?!?

Chocolate

The first step is admitting you have a problem...

Chocolate covered cherries…winter mint Hershey Kisses…a holiday mix of Reese’s PB Cups…and last, but certainly not least…the timeless Christmas staple…Three Variety Tin of Popcorn.

Holiday Treats

Tinned mirth for only $5.75

Like I said, Wal-Mart had my money in its pockets before I even showered this morning.  It has a dangerous pull over me…sort of like the Emperor’s control over Darth Vadar in Star Wars.
