I agree with your overall distinction. I think I woul generally go for 'I' were I to deliver, say, consultancy services or anything tailor-made. This however is not the case: the company will offer off-the-shelve saas services on a subscription basis. So I feel 'we' would be a better fit here. (No personal name involved in the branding either). I'm going to open my blog with the story behind the story probably as in introduction probably. Thanks for that idea :)

@MarjanVenema: I'm in the later camp. It's a nice additional benefit to perhaps lower the barrier to entry when talking about 'we' instead of 'I'. "Using "we" may hide the fact that you are alone, but communicating with "the company" people will soon realize there is just you." Perhaps I'm reading too much into this but 'hiding' has a negative connotation to me as if done on purpose. That's definitely not the intention: the 'about' page etc is open about that. It just feels more natural to be to talk about 'we'. Thanks for your thoughts.

comment Fusing words for website name: confusing or doable?
Thanks, and I agree on not being over-zealous about it. However, as you say, what people associate with a name IS important. Associating it with 'pot' and all it's meanings doesn't feel ideal to me. I like your simple suggestion of capitalizing the 'S' though. My other domain that I own is Parisforaweekend.com, longer but 100% without confusion. I'm going to let this marinate for a bit.

Thanks, it was exactly what I was asking for. Going with my current domainname instead probably: Parisforaweekend.com, although I wish it was a tad shorter.

Fair enough.. I'll probably hold on to my existing name (not live yet) : Parisforaweekend.com. I do like that one, but I felt it is a bit long. Pretty much impossible to come up with a good short unclaimed domainname in travel :)
