Tag! You're *It*?

I’ve been toying with the idea of a tag line, or a subtitle, for a while, but didn’t start to panic until I read Jennine’s IFB newsletter on the necessity of one.

So I’m testing some.

Last week I had “literate style” under my banner head. Somehow that seemed a little prim. I don’t want something too academic sounding, something that evokes the MLA stylebook, for instance, but maybe this one was appropriate?


This week I have "'too intellectual' for Vogue since 1996." This one may read like self-deprecating egotism (huh?), so I added a little context to the “about me” section. It is “true,” so I like that.

I suppose I could also have a rotating tagline, but would that be confusing?

Any reaction to any of these possibilities?

I actually quite like "literate style". It says erudite lady, to me.

Oh, I have such a hard time when it comes to tag lines, but I do think literate style is a nice one!

I also vote for "literate style."

Agreed. I don't think "literate style" is prim at all.

Literate style is great! Eek, do we really have to have a tagline?

I say pick one and stick to it!

Well, it looks like you settled on literate style. I like the too intellectual one too but it was probably too long for a tag line.

I'm glad you added that note to your about me. It's something to be proud of!
