Picking a name for your blog

blogger

Once you have decided to go for it and become a blogger or vlogger, you will need to pick a name and to decide what you are going to write about.

This can be a stumbling block for a lot of people, but it’s worth taking a bit of time over because this is your ‘brand’.

It is how people will recognise you, and the identity that you will create for your site.

What’s in a name?

To help you think of your name, try answering the following questions:

  • What do you like doing?
  • What are your passions?
  • What are you good at?
  • What do you do / think about regularly that you could write about regularly?
  • Where do you find your inspiration?
  • Who are you writing it for?

For example, if parenting is your chosen subject, which aspects do you want to write about? Is it activities or days out, the funny side of parenting, nutrition, or perhaps more educational topics?

Use your passions to help you find your ‘voice’ and write a list of things you could write about to see if there are any themes that emerge.

If you’re still struggling for a catchy name, try an online name generator service like Getsocio or Panabee for some ideas.
