What do you call your blog? Why did you choose the name you did?
Using my name as the blog name was a deliberate act on my part. I felt that as a writer, it was important readers know me by name. It was and is my brand.
For the new blog (still in pre-production) I need something catchy with good search engine potential. I'd also like to create a logo around it, so it needs to be short and spiffy.
Somehow, and I need to think on this some more, I need to keep my name linked with the new blog name. I've worked too hard and too long to lose my name in the quagmire of searchable bloggers.
Over the weekend, I've been keying in various names to see what hasn't been used yet. A quick Google search states that in 2013 there were over 152 million. Another site says it was over 173 million (in 2011).
Let that sink in. That's millions upon millions of blogs.
Many blogs are abandoned. Still the url remains. If no one deletes it, it continues to exist in the blog realm of the ethereal.
Coming up with a catchy name has been incredibly easy. Coming up with a name that hasn't been used yet...not so much.
Have you ever considered renaming your blog? What would you call it if you could change it?
PS I'm in and out today. I'll reply to comments as soon as I'm back in internet range.
