The poll is closed! It’s been an interesting discussion and I’ll let you know the results (and the winner) when I post the new comic tomorrow. Thank you for helping me out!
When I came up with the name for this comic, I was aiming for something short, easy to write and just plain funny. A compound word like ‘Beardfluff’ fit that perfectly. When it came to deciding how to write it, I chose the most compact form (no spaces or hyphen) for practical reasons. If you use a hyphen (Beard-fluff) or open form (Beard Fluff), I figured people would wonder how to construct the url. There’s some room for interpretation when it comes to rules in writing compound words. What I didn’t count on was that there’s a tendency for some compounds to be written in its open form. So I’m left wondering if it would have made more sense to write ‘Beard Fluff’ instead. Now that’s where you, loyal readers, come in. I’m looking at the native English speakers especially. What seems the more natural way to write it? You can either vote on the Facebook poll or just leave a comment below. I will change the name accordingly. You’ll have my eternal gratitude and one of the voters will get a copy of the new book.
