So I'm indecisive

Why did I change the blog name? Read the title. While I liked inmanperk I couldn’t help but continue to search for a ‘better’ name. The issue is that I want one that I will never have to change, so it can’t be time sensitive. When I leave New York, I can’t still have a blog titled Living in New York or something similar.

A few names I considered:

See you in hell – taken
Heaven can wait – taken
Heaven’s overrated – taken
Ipreferhell – “too rough”
Yuppiesinhell – “too rough”

Where did the burnt apple come from? I began to think about other names for NYC, a big one being, The Big Apple. (pun intended). I then wanted to use something representing our neighborhood, Hell’s Kitchen. What is the saying – You’ll burn in hell for eternity? I combined that with The Big Apple to get to The Burnt Apple.

I’m still not sure theburntapple is the one, but I made a promise not to change it again. I’ve also signed up the gmail, twitter, and webpage in case it takes off and becomes an overnight success. Or not…

If you don’t like it, please don’t tell me. I will seriously develop an aneurism if I have to find another blog name. Yes, stupid things like this overwhelm and conquer me. However, if you have praise for me, shower on people, shower on.



  1. The Burnt Apple is perfect, a terrific name worthy of a great blog. I'm sure you can live up to it. Have fun!

  2. Dude, I will hurl a burnt apple at your head the next time I see you. :) I like it, honestly.
