Famous Fesh

Last week I took the first step towards my glamorous career to-be as a world renowned writer..... you can laugh at me now, but you'll come begging for my friendship later. So we have at work a newsletter that is published quarterly, it's a decent publication and with around 200+ folks at the office it has a good readers base. I shared with the editor one of the posts I had here on my blog and I proposed I edit it out and offer him an article for every issue. He like the idea and offered me my very own column!

As a result I have been struggling over the last few days with the title of my column. Here's what I am considering about the title:
  • Needs to be catchy
  • Needs to have 'Fesh' in it. (yes my narcissistic instincts, sue me).
  • Needs to be short.
So far I've but together a list:
  • FeshFeshiyat
  • FeshFeshy
  • Chronicles of the Fesh
  • Ramblings of the Fesh
  • Fesh's Corner
  • SIMPL Fesh (read it as 'simple Fesh' but the first part is a business inside joke)
  • Fesh: Business Transformed. (again a business inside joke)
What do you think? Like any of them? All crap? Can you suggest?

Feshfesh said...

Dude, very kool options, I like: Call Me Fesh! True very simple... bas mesh lacking on the catchy-ness factor? I mean would you be attracted to read a column for someone you don't know if it were called Call Me Fesh? Bas I like bardo :D

Ok - I am not gonna think of anymore cause these are all great - but as a reader (& I will get my mind set into Non-Arabic reader form) I can tell you what sounds cool & what not:

- Feshopotamia: Loose it - not catchy, hard to pronounce.
- Fesh Nation: keep
- Feshtastic: too old school, been used 10 hundred times - you need origninality
- Feshilicious: Though it falls in the old school used before category - but here it just sounds so nice - keep.
- Feshfeshation: loose - literally unpronouncable - try to say 10 times in a row & you will know what I mean.
- Call me Fesh: Nice... keep
- And there was Feshfesh: loose. too long
- Wanted Fesh or Alive: Love it. Keep
- Ofeshial: People might think that it is a name or a word that means something, loose. (would be funny in the Egyptian market though since that is really how we pronounce the word official)
- O-Fesh Supplies: If you will talk about business or the corporate world - definately keep.
- Fesh Off: Na
- Fesh in Fesh Out: keep
- Fesh in a box: loose
- The after Fesh: doesnt signify anything - loose (listen man they are all good - but you gotta eventually narrow it down here)
- The Fesh Factor: That's one I would totaly use... I love it. (Notice in my own blog I spoke about the Bullshit Factor, The Bedan Factor...etc)
- Close encounters... blah blah - loose. Not catchy - too long.

No Hard Feelings! Just trying to help!

Cheers & congratulations on your VERY OWN column - YEPEEEEE!
