It's the Rename Ana's Blog Contest! Fun! Beauty! Prizes~!

Have you ever wondered how I chose the name for the blog? Every time I see Support Your Local Sacred Musician, I wonder anew. I mostly wonder if I should change it, but I’m terrible at naming things. Then I look at it and wonder what possessed me to think it was a good name in the first place. It’s not as though I think the content is a bad idea, but after writing (and reading) the posts, it seems like not such a good fit. I can’t imagine anyone clicking on a blog with this title, and, it seems, no one else can either.

So, I’ve decided to have a contest. Let’s call it the Rename Ana’s Blog Contest. If you can think of a better name for the blog, leave a comment. If your submission is chosen, the prize is a copy of The Sacred Art of Chant: Preparing to Practice, and a copy of my latest CD, HARC: Blessed by Light.

If you’re bad a naming things, send this along to someone who loves to name things and make them do it.

Have a beautiful and fun day, and thanks in advance for the help.


  1. Thanks for the reminder! I'll add it to the list.

  2. How about "Ana is about more than just music"

  3. OmAna is my final choice: I like the caps/lc; it references you and your calling (obliquely), and it invokes and implores god's nurturing spirit (more obliquely). Or maybe oblique isn't what's wanted for a blog name! I still like it.

  4. You haven't changed the name of the blog, so I'm guessing the contest is still open. :) I really like Kate's suggestion - very fitting, even though we've never met (I do know your work through the Music that Makes Community workshop/Music by Heart songbook and now I know a priest in St. Paul who admires your work too). Thank you for the work you do - its inspiring to others to step out in meaningful ways. Blessings!
