Good Blog Names

by ianadmin on January 18, 2012

Good Blog NamesA great way of promoting your business, new start up, or personal website is to create a blog.

So what is a blog?

For those of you who are not internet savvy, a blog is a website where you simply post your views, pictures, memoirs, thoughts, ideas – more or less anything you want.

A blog is a great way of getting internet traffic or an audience so that you can either sell to them if you run a business, or simply pass on ideas.
Having your own blog can also be therapeutic. It is a place where you can simply write down your thoughts and publish them – be careful though.

It may not be a good idea to publish when you will be going away on holiday etc. Common sense is the way to go.

Most of us are members of social media websites now like facebook etc, so a blog can be a cool way of extending your web persona.

Facebook currently also lets you link to a site of your own by creating a fan page, so you can link your facebook page to your blog and show all your friends your new blog.

So what makes a good blog name?

Generally short and memorable is the way to go here, but how about using your own name ie bertiebrooster.com or maybe bertsblog.com.
You really want to keep the name simple and to the point. Remember if you tell someone about your blog, you want them to remember it and be able to find it on the net.

Try to avoid hyphens and numbers. Imagine in our example of Bertie telling a friend about his cool new blog and the friend asks for the domain name of which is “bertie-brooster3.com” – nobody is going to remember that.
Try and buy the .com version of the name – that currently is the number one domain extension and is easily remembered.

If you can afford it, buy as many of the same name extensions as well ie bertiebrooster.net, bertiebrooster.co.uk etc. This stops other internet users from buying these names and copying your idea.
Be creative and think outside the box. Often the most memorable domain names are really unusual and humorous such as Go Daddy, Google, Yahoo etc
