The next step for you to figure out, or you may have been thinking about this the entire time, What Should I Name My Blog?
This is one of the biggest dilemma’s I’ve run into over the years with my blogs. Let me see if I can help you narrow it down.
- Your blog name should reflect What your blog is about. How descriptive is it?
- It should be “catchy” so folks will remember it easily.
- Keep it short and focused.
- Make sure the Domain is available for it, preferably the .com. You can check to see if it’s available for FREE at 1and1.com.
Here are a few other items to consider:
- Make it Unique – Are they other blogs similarly named?
- Google or Bing the name you are considering to make sure it is Available and Unique.
- Be sure it’s easily spelled. Don’t try to be tricky with swapping out “i” for “y” because it’s going to be difficult for potential readers to find.
If you’re still unsure, ask a few trusted friends to help you name it. You may think you have a great name in mind, however by asking a potential reader what they think; you might find out otherwise.
Don’t let naming your blog ruin your journey. As with figuring out the Why and Which Platform, Choosing a Name should be carefully considered.
