I don't think you will ever find a name to handle them all.


Now that sounds like a challange, do we get a free downsizer t-shirt if we do. Hang on it would not be a downsizer t-shirt it would be whatever the new name is.

Anyway surely you have now got a bit of a following up, would changing the name perhaps be a bit detremental?

TBH I think it is a non starter on those very grounds. We are getting 1000+ hits via search engines a month now, and why throw that away?

The name doesn't bother me in the slightest- if anything, I'm trying my best to 'upsize', but trying to find a single word to describe all the people on here would be nigh on impossible

sensibleliving.com, or wholisticliving.com springs to mind after the last post. Trouble is, once you have a name and people know of you, it would probably cause confusion if you change it. Better the devil you know, I guess. It sure is difficult finding a name that covers everything you want to convey. I struggled with finding a good name for my site, and ended up doing a snapp decision whilst the tutor who was teaching me html and basic site design was waiting for a decision whilst fillling in the application form for the sitehost.
Downsizer is not a bad name, the only small proviso is that some people are shifting up to live this kind of life, some people shift over. In a language and society dominated by polarities and specialities, its not easy to find words that subtly cover a whole range of things. Still, could be worse, just count your blessings that its not German, or the site would be called www.runtergroesserer.net
