Columbus wants to be…

Columbus skyline as a postcardChicago?  Cleveland? 


I don’t think Columbus wants to be Chicago or Cleveland…

A Dayton blog thinks Columbus has aspirations to be Chicago or Cleveland?

In “I wish we were more like…” Dayton Most Metro claims:

  • Columbus = Cow Town

  • And they hate the fact that whenever mentioned on the national stage, they are always called Columbus, Ohio as opposed to just Columbus (and some have suggested they change their name.)

I think the first is Cow-Town… or so my spell check tells me.  My category here is Cowtown but that’s because that was what the category was on the original Columbus Best Blog and that blog is sooooo old it did not have spell check when I started.

The Columbus Ohio thing… Gee I hope Columbus doesn’t change the cities name… I’d have two blogs I’d need to rename.  I think Columbus is OK with all those other mini Columubuses sharing the same name.  I can understand why we often have to use the state name… I have lots of searches for other Columbuses end up on my Columbus Ohio real estate blogs.

I say embrace the cows!

That is an interesting point – that people always refer to Columbus as Columbus, Ohio. I’ve noticed it a lot.

I read somewhere one of the news syndicates requires it be called Columbus Ohio in stories. It is the biggest Columbus but it is one of a number of cities named Columbus, Columbus GA, Columbus MS, Columbus IN, Columbus MT…
