choosing a Blog Name

When it comes to naming something, many projects (like a blog) come to a screeching halt. We become paralyzed with our indecision and don’t want to choose the “wrong” name or a bad blog name,

There are much bigger things to think about than coming up with a blog name, so don’t waste your time on it.

Of course, you need to think about it a little. But don’t let this part of the process stop you from getting started.

Tips for coming up with a blog name

1. Define your niche

Before you start getting all creative with naming your blog, it’s important to take a moment and think about exactly what your blog’s going to be about.

As mentioned above, make sure you have your niche picked out. Then, before deciding a name, you want to ask yourself the following:

– What niche are you in?
– What topics are you going to write about?
– Who is your target audience?
– What is the general tone/voice of your blog?

It’s important to think about the above questions because the blog name you pick should resonate with your audience.

The most obvious way to do this is to use keywords in your name that are related to your niche.

For example, you might do a blog about hiking and choose the name HikingAddicts.com

2. Make it a short and catchy blog name

Ideally, you want a blog name that is short, catchy & memorable for the reader.

Having a long generic name like StevesGreatCookingBlog.com isn’t going to leave much of an impression. Try to limit your name to a few words.

Some examples of blogs with great names include:

  • ladbible
  • boredpanda
  • BuzzFeed
  • TechCrunch
  • Lifehacker

3. Look for inspiration

A hot spot for gathering blog name ideas is Amazon books.

Search the categories that are related to your blog and browse through the 1000s of book titles for inspiration and ideas.

4. Use a thesaurus

After you have a list of some words or phrases, you can then use a thesaurus to expand on this.

Go to Thesaurus.com, enter a word and hit search. Thesaurus will generate a bunch of synonyms and related words for blog ideas.

You can also click on each of these words to generate a new list. The ideas for naming a blog are endless.

5. Use a name generator

You’ve gotta love the internet. There’s a tool for everything.
