Catholic American has a nice ring to it, and it summarizes rather nicely what this website is all about. The only problem with my current domain name, Thinking-Catholic-Strategic-Center, is that it is so long. SBI has recommended moving too-long web domain names into new shorter ones, if the owner thinks it worthwhile, and they provide a tool, called MOVEIT with which to do accomplish the move. But it doesn't just go ZAP and the move is complete.
There is a bunch of stuff I have to do first, before pulling the MOVEIT trigger. (The more I get into it, the less inclined I am to go through with it.) And then, after moving all pages to the new domain name, there is an even bigger bunch of stuff I have to do to make everything work right. I will have to at least touch every single webpage in the whole website, and at the moment, counting this one, there are 545 separate pages to go over. We're talking a lot of work here.
I like the idea of the www.Catholic-American.com domain name replacing the current www.Thinking-Catholic-Strategic-Center.com. We're talking replacing a 34 character domain name with a 17 character domain name. However ...
Since I drive a good nine hours every day, that's nine hours out of every day that I can't be fooling around with this website. And it's not fair to God, and to Marcie and Mark, let alone to me, to take up whole weekends sitting at this computer. All I have is the usual couple of hours every morning before going to work, and maybe a couple of evening hours if I'm not too tired. I can't put in any more time than I'm putting in right now. What I'm saying is that, once I start this project, I cannot realistically predict how many days or even weeks the site will be either down, or not fully or properly functioning before it's all done.
And I wonder if it's worth it. What do you think?
SBI has already registered www.Catholic-American.com in my name, for like $12.00 per year, and I have set it up to redirect traffic to the home page of this site. If and when I pull the MOVEIT trigger, everything in this domain will move to that one. After that, I will either set the old domain name to redirect traffic to the new one, or just drop it.
My current website mail would change from vic@Thinking-Catholic-Strategic-Center.com to Vic@Catholic-American.com. I will have to drop affiliate ads before the move, and I may or may not reinstall them afterward; at the moment it doesn't look like it will be worth it to keep them. I will need to change and rebuild every webpage that has Thinking Catholic Strategic Center hard-coded into it anywhere, to be replaced with hard-coded Catholic American. That's the biggest piece of work, because that little problem is on every page.
MOVEIT takes care of all links and all sub-domain names; but anything hard coded or just in text is up to me. There are other little details, like notifications and requests to other sites that link to me, and sites that I link to, and internet cooperation in maintaining inter-site traffic.
It's like a mountain of work I'm looking at here, and I'm not so sure the benefit outweighs the work and the potential problems. Plus, there is the fact that I just like to write on these Catholic American topics, and the website technology itself doesn't interest me that much.
Do you think it's worth it?

CATHOLIC AMERICAN is great..strong-melodic-patriotic-totally descriptive of what you're all about. BUT if I was driving 9 hrs a day and as well established as you are I'd pass on the grinding workload to convert. You also know there'll be unexpected grief somewhere along the line. Then there's the elections coming up. Last thing you'd want to do is defer or rush through some juicy issue because you're buried in tech stuff. Work the CATHOLIC AMERICAN in where you can like you did after "command bunker" and over time you'll achieve a lot of the effect you're looking for. GOD BLESS & keep up the great CATHOLIC AMERICAN work you do .

From: Vic Biorseth
Thanks; that's kind of how I'm thinking right now too. The only real solid reason to do it at all is to cut the domain name from 34 characters to 17. I will do it eventually, but right now I just don't see any need to rush ahead with it. Personally, I don't do anything with Twitter anyway.

Yes, Catholic American has a nice, robust sort of ring to it

Why do you have to change thinking catholic strategic center everywhere it appears in text? It looks ok to me in the heading graphic. Are you going to change that too? If so, why?
Date: Sun May 04 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
Good point. I just recently changed that heading to include Catholic American, so it would be compatible both ways. But maybe that should be the permanent heading graphic as-is. Along with that, individual page hard-coded text that doesn't do anything (like a link), if it isn't changed, will only point back to the history of the website. Not such a big deal.
Still, the by-line link at the top of every page, will change to the new destination; however, the blue-underlined text part of it that appears on every page, will not. As part of the by-line, I will want it to reflect the new domain name. It's an appearance thing, not affecting actual function. So I still have to go over every page, but not for every little thing, and not necessarily in any big rush.
Thank you for that point.

The word "thinking" is what initially drew me to your web site. "Catholic American" is just too broad and inclusive. There are many Catholic Americans out there who have never thought about the issues you discuss. They appear shocked when I bring them up in conversation.
Date: Sun May 04 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
I hear you, and I hate to remove "thinking" from the actual domain name. I remember way back at the original concept of the site, the two things that I most wanted to emphasize were good critical thinking, and thinking Catholic.
However, if the ultimate goal is simplicity and the shortest reasonable domain name, thinking comes out below American, and below Catholic. As luck would have it, the website E-Zine title is the Catholic American Thinker, and that will remain its name.
"There are many Catholic Americans out there who have never thought about the issues you discuss."
That, Bob, is the whole, almost sole reason this website exists. Most of the existing content, and planned future content, revolve around things Catholic laymen ought to know, but don't, and things ordinary American citizens ought to know, but don't.
The blame for a poorly catechized Catholic laity I lay at the feet of our Catholic Bishops, who have sole authority and responsibility for proper catechesis in their particular Churches. In their overwhelming majority, our Bishops have failed and are failing in their teaching mission, and they are not fully or properly passing on the teaching that was handed on to them.
The blame for a poorly educated and even dumbed-down citizenry I lay at the feet of an education establishment, an entertainment industry, an entire News Media and even our two major Political Parties who have been infiltrated, seduced and virtually overwhelmed by predominantly Marxist (i.e., anti-American) ideologies of various description, from Progressivism to Crony-Capitalism right on to Communism and Fascism.
So when I call this site Catholic American, what I intend to promote is old time, complete, Orthodox, Magisterial Catholicism, and old time, simple, basic, fundamental American Constitutionalism.

If you plan to change the focus of your articles, a name change would be in order. I feel that like several of the comments stated, "Thinking" should stay. The words, “Strategic” and “Center” don’t help identify the content of your thoughts.
I really don’t think the tile of the website means that much. What is more important are clear and concise articles that focus on the issues in today’s society that affect not only Catholic Americans, but all people who are trying to live a life that is consistent with God’s Laws and the Constitution. I would leave the Catholic specific issues up to Michael Voris’s Vortex website.
Date: Mon May 05 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
Very good points.
What do you think about www.CatholicAmericanThinker.com?
It would only reduce character count from 34 to 23, but it would be more descriptive.
Strictly "Catholic Specific" Issues are of primary importance to this site. Catholicism is supposed to positively influence larger culture. The goals of this website are, in order of importance,
I do get very specific about my Catholic faith, but I'm not as well educated in it as Michael Voris. And Michael Voris gets pretty political sometimes. There are occasions when we say almost the same things, he in video, and me in text.
Now I'm thinking "Catholic American Thinker" may be a better way to go.
Date: Mon May 05 07:18:40 2014
Catholic American Thinker is a better name.
I agree with John above. I am not Catholic but I follow your writing, and your focus seems to be more political than religious. Is Catholic evangelism really your primary focus, and should it be?
Date: Mon May 05 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
Yeah, that's the primary focus, because the Church Christ founded is the final focal point of all truth on earth, so long as the original message remains unchanged.
The reason so much attention has been paid to American political issues lately is that America is in very real danger of being brought down, from within, by her own elected government. So, you best direct the fire hose at the base of the fire.
Note that Obamunism and the Marxocrat Party never could have made this much headway against Constitutional America if the ground had not been prepared by a thoroughgoing systematic destruction of the morality of the citizenry.

On the face of it, Vic, it looks like an awful lot of work for what appears to me a very minimal gain.
Does SBI give a specific reason why using a shorter domain name would be beneficial? Is there some technical advantage to it?
Although I like the title "Catholic-American", as one of the other posters here points out, the "thinking" part is what attracts the most attention.
Unless there's some really good technical or other reason for making this change, I don't see any benefit to it, given the amount of time and effort you'd have to spend on it.
Unless, of course, you know some tech guru to whom you could farm this work out . . . .
Date: Mon May 05 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
Right; it would be a lot of work that may or may not prove to be worth it. Shorter names more packed with meaning are supposed to stick in memories better, and short domain names surrounded by some verbage are easier to "tweet" and use in social media.
Whatever decision is made won't be very soon; I will sit on this for awhile. Thanks for the input.
