C.O. Bonham dot com

If you have been on the site recently you may have noticed a change.

 The dolphin18cb is gone. The website is now cobonham.com.

 “Why?” you ask.

 Well, random musings from my addled mind really weren’t cutting it. I needed more focus, better branding if you will.

 I’ve felt like I’ve been floundering on the blog. Just writing about whatever struck my fancy wasn’t working. I started this blog to promote myself. But what was I really promoting?

 Dolphin18cb isn’t a pen name it’s a user name.

 Enter the Pen name C.O. Bonham.

 Why a pen name?

 The pen name was born out of two thing.

 1) I’ve written two unpublished novels and a handful of short stories, all with one thing in common. Male POVs. That’s right I write about boys, and someone who I trust and respect told me that boys don’t want to read books written by Cathrine Opal Bonham.

 Could I have asked for a more feminine name?

 This is a great lead-in to thing two:

 2) You may have noticed that Cathrine is spelled with out an E in the middle. It’s not wrong, I’ve checked my birth certificate.

 I was content to be unique until I took some bad advice from a job fair flier. “A professional email address should be yourname@mailservice.com so I created an email with no e in Cathrine.

And you guessed it, the only emails I got were spam. My potential employers couldn’t read well enough or didn’t care enough to spell my name right.

 So there it is, you have my weird writing habits and my odd spelling to thank for cobonham.com.

 A decidedly book-centric website, for promoting my works and the works of others. No more Randomness, no more addled mind. But dolphins are still nice, yes I’ll find away to work in dolphins.

 Keep watching this spot as I gradually make updates and tweak my brand.
