Hello World, long time no written. First of all I know I am little late but… happy EASTER to y’all! Ok now getting to the serious part, based on the title of this article, I had a few questions from friends of how to choose a name for your blog. Well the answer is not easy, I will have to admit. There is a lot of things to think about; you have to know that later on the name will stick to you, but also on social media platforms. Afterward it will be hard and delicate to change your name. So be sure to pick the right one.
Here are some of my advices for choosing the right name for your blog (wether it’s cooking, travel, photography, fashion or else…)
1. IT HAS TO REFLECT YOUR PERSONNA
First of all think in which direction you would like to head in. Is it going to be on food, lifestyle, cars, photography, fashion…Once your mind is set, think what you like the most in that field. For example if it’s about food focus mixed with something you’re good at/like, for instance veggies then from there think about a name that reflects about veggies but also something related to you, to make it more personal. Don’t hesitate to brainstorm your ideas.
2.NAME GENERATOR SITES
Here are some examples :
(Domain wheel. One of my favorite, just by typing a keyword, you have tons of ideas)

3.ONCE YOU FIND THE NAME OF YOUR BLOG, IS IT GOING TO BE …
You have a choice; what type of platform or domain is it going to be. A blogspot.com, which is free and when you just start a blog I would recommend this one. It’s easy to use and you have your practice there. Now if you would like to get more serious you have the option to either go with square space and for this domain you can get a ».com », ».net » and so on. It’s only 20$ / year. Might as well invest in it, if you would like to become more serious. And last but not least with wordpress you can always contact a graphic designer if you have a bigger budget and start with OVH.com .
4. MAKE SURE IT STAND OUT
You need to find a name quite easy to pronounce in different languages. And easy to remember but that stands out and represents you as well.
5. SET UP & COMMIT TO IT
Once you have been through the brainstorm and also chose your domain, you can now START your blog! Don’t forget to be consistent with your posts and commit to it, otherwise what is the whole point of setting up when you invest so much time, effort and energy into it! And not to forget you need to be passionate about it, your readers will feel it through your work.
