New blog name still wanted!

What would YOU like to name our blog?  The person who comes up with the best suggestion wins a £100 gift certificate at Amazon.com!

A few weeks ago we we asked you to think of a new name for the Nordic VisitBritain blog. Until now it has been called “Mind The Gap”, but since there are many other blogs and sites called that, we are changing it. We want to stand out!

So far we have received hundreds of name suggestions (thank you all ever so much for your creative thinking and hard work – we love the enthusiasm!). We would like to have a list of ten alternatives to let the jury choose from and so far we have six alternatives we really like:

1. Albion Happenings
2. Brit-Bits
3. Look Right
4. Looks Like Rain
5. Tea Time
6. Ticket to Ride
7. –
8. –
9. –
10. –

Do you think you have a better name for our blog than any of these six? Please write your suggestion and e-mail in the comment field of this blog post. The competition is open until Sunday the 20:th of June 2010.

Thanks for your help!
/Carl

    hi, stealing Bill Bryson’s title for his travel book about GB, how about ‘Notes From A Small Island’.

    I like it because it sums up British self-depreciation – we are just a small, dark, wet island off the coast of Europe- but also hints at how Britain’s cuture hits well above its weight relative to its modest size

    Unique UK
