Big Changes Ahead

Thanks to everyone who weighed in on my Facebook page about the blog’s title. I really appreciate your feedback. As much as I love Where Do Gaybies Come From, I’ve decided to change it.

I had a little concern that “gaybies” might be off-putting or confusing to people, that it makes it sound like the kids are gay rather than the parents.  But ultimately, I just decided that WDGCF was too backward-looking. While my memoir is going to be about the events leading up to the kids’ birth, the blog is more about our life today. Not so much where they came from, but where we’re going. Plus, they’re not babies any more. (Sniff, sniff.)

Most of all, though, I came up with a new, more appropriate title that I like even better.

I won’t be unveiling the new name just yet. I’m planning a big site redesign in a few weeks, and the new name will take effect then. Don’t worry, though. You won’t need to update your bookmarks or subscriptions, since both jerry-mahoney.com and wheredogaybiescomefrom.com will still direct you to this page.

I’m so grateful to all my friends and friends of friends who support this site, and nothing makes me happier than seeing a complete stranger leave a comment or “like” my Facebook page. I hope you’ll all stick around as I make a few adjustments around here.

  1. I agree. I like the title, but the word “Gaybies” might be misconstrued. My wife and I are expecting a son, and we’d like to name him Gabriel, but we’re worried that the possible nickname is too obvious for bullies.

    • I never thought about that before with Gabriel. I hope you won’t let that stop you, though. It’s a great name, and I know some terrific Gabriels who turned out just fine. Thanks for commenting!
