Wendy blogs about a blog title


Here in the Somerville office we fall somewhere between consensus decision making and a true hierarchy. When big decisions have to be made the buck stops with Carolyn, our executive director and the board of directors. But for day to day decisions, we try to involve as many staff as want to be involved.

For example, naming this blog has been a group project. Like anyone starting a blog we aimed for a name that was funny, clever, not too cute and definitely relevant. We started brainstorming title ideas through email. Everyone was given the opportunity to present the ideas they liked. We spent at least a week thinking, joking, dreaming of titles. It was even the subject of one of our Friday Happy Hour discussions. Here are some of the titles we came up with. It was hard to choose but in the end, we think we found the right one!
