I Need Your Help!

Ok, here's the deal.

I've been thinking about it for a while, and I need to totally overhaul my blog site, and I want you to help me. Here's what I need.

1. A new title- AZ Piper's is what I started with, but I'm not sure it will fit if we...say, someday... move back to Iowa. The only thing I can think of lately is "Hot Mom in a Mail Truck" and of course, that may not even fit in a few years, and HOT being the literal definition at 114 degrees, is not always true either. (and let's not even go to the place where I would refer to myself as a "hot" mom in the figurative sense, because I do live in reality)

2. I need a new layout- I could use some input of maybe a theme (or even a color scheme) that would be good, and fitting. I may go with having someone design me one, but I still need something to go on here. Suggestions of blog designers is welcome too.

3. I need you to also help me spread the word so please link up to me, it would really help me out.

I'm thinking it will be something of a contest. So comment your idea to me, and at the end of the week, I'll have a poll and see which ideas win. Then if your idea is the winner you will win a prize. I think there's only one rule. You have to have actually read and "gotten to know" my personality a little bit to be included in the polls. This doesn't mean you have to have commented, but seriously, I don't want some sports themed blog, or you know, something that would not totally fit my personality. So basically I'm saying I have free reign over deciding what makeg it into the polls.


  1. Because my brain is unable to think for itself I signed up to get a blog overhaul from Once Upon a Blog (linked from McMommy) the wait is several weeks but it saves me the effort. I'll be thinking of a name for you though.

  2. I have absolutely no advice to give, as I am still trying to figure out how this whole thing works! And for a name, well, I failed to come up with something creative for myself (The Wollman's Blogspot??? Please!) so, I'm really no help there either! I will give it some thought though, and I'll let you know if I think of anything.

    Good luck! :)

  3. Would it be wrong to name it "Penis Razors"??

    I'm just sayin....

    hee hee!

    Fantastic contest! I will put my thinking cap on...

  4. OMG this thing is keeps kicking out my comments. If you get a couple, I am sorry!

    I think something like Piper's Peppery Post. Piper- that covers you. Peppery- covers the whole hot thing without being too literal. And Post covers the blog thing and the mail carrier thing. You could have a red pepper background. Very southwest/AZ feel. Just my ideas.

    I also really like Penis Razor as the pp suggested ... lol. I like your blog. You do a great job. I wish I had time to do this. I barely keep up with caringbridge.

    Good luck!

  5. Oooo ... or spicy piper's post ... or spicy piper's peppery post. Apparently I have nothing else pressing to think about today :-P

  6. I'm so not good at this. Piper's Pickles... sweet, but full of vinegar, or 'one stop for all things Piper'.

    I told you, I'm horrible at this...

  7. Ok, It really doesn't have to have our last name in the title. I almost would like to just say definately NOT have our last name (if you haven't seen my stalker post that will explain it).

    Ive thought of a couple that sort of decribe my mental state right now... Barely Breathing, or Remembering to Breathe. Something like that maybe.

  8. I was thinking about this last night when I was laying in bed and thought Piping Hot Post cos it covers the mail thing, your name, and the hot!! Sigh. Now you don't want it focused on your name I shall go back to thinking.....

  9. How about Short of Breath ?

    Or Just breathe or Just breathing?

    Or Catching a breath or catch a breath?

    That's all i got for the mo...

  10. The tales of EmphyseMAMA?
    Ok, I know it's dumb- but I thought it might be worth a chuckle.
