name that blog!

I need your blogging expertise for an art car project. I have a 1996 black 4door geo tracker that is starting to rust away. I'm not ready to give it up yet as I love this little car. It's gone across the country, climbed up the tallest mountain in CO, pulled numerous people out the snow, and never fails to impress me, even when I think it's going to die. It's not the prettiest thing anymore (slightly better looking than the image below) so I decided to let others make it pretty for me.

I'm going to be spraypainting Pepe with chalkboard paint and having my friend weld a metal box to the back door that will hold chalk. I'm going to encourage people to draw whatever they want on Pepe (within reason of course). I'll continue to take pictures and upload them to the blog. Additionally, I will encourage people to take a photo of them next to their completed piece and send it to me. If they took video of them chalking my car, that would be great too.

First, what are your favorite blogging sites? I currently use Livejournal for my own personal blogging, but I don't know if I want to keep that for this project. There will be photos and video on it but that shouldn't be a problem for any blog sites anymore. If there is a blog service that easily allows photo and/or video uploads from a cellphone (I use AT&T and have a Sony Walkman W810 phone, an amazing phone btw) that would also be useful.

Second, what should I call it? I've thought about CarChalk (sounds like Car Talk) but there is a window chalk company called that. Also came up with Chalk Truck, Geo Chalker, and Rusty Black Car Covered in Chalk.



Simple, short, memorable, easy to spell - these are the criteria I use for urls. Give that I'd go with "chalktruck" or "geochalker" of the ones you gave. I also like "chalkmytruck" or "chalkmygeo".

I use Moveable Type for my blog which is the same platform PDD uses and I like it quite well.

Let us know what you do and make sure to aggregate it in the PDD links.

I like "Geochalker" - hilarious, sort of like geocaching and Geo Tracker all mixed up in a fine chalky mess; also ChalkTalk
or ChalkRocks.

Seriously: If you click "post" more than once, you're going to end up looking really stupid.
