I’ve started a lot of businesses and websites in my lifetime, and have used my own little system for coming up with the perfect business or blog name in just a few steps.
I thought I’d share that process with you, because it has worked for me each and every time.
How to Decide on a Blog Name
Deciding on a blog name is probably one of the most important steps to creating a new blog (or business!).
You want it to be catchy, easy to remember and spell, and relate to you somehow.
I’ve seen tons of websites and blogs with the same name which is never a good thing. When you follow the steps I’m about to show you below, make sure to add your own spin on your final name if you need to separate yourself from other sites using the same title.
Alright, so my process is basically to throw a bunch of words down on a piece of paper and see what sticks. Not just any words though, words that describe you and what your site is about.
Try to think of descriptive words that tell a story about what your blog (or brand) contains. Your name is going to be what draws people in and helps them determine the type of site they’re stumbling upon.
I’ve come up with an example that you can follow to help you choose your perfect blog name. So grab a piece of paper and enter your own words like the example below:
If you need a little more help, here is a huge list of descriptive words!
Once you’ve come up with your name, do a quick Google search or a search on GoDaddy.com to see if the name and domain name has already been taken. If it has, try altering it slightly to suit your own brand.
I hope that helped you get a start on coming up with a great name! I’d love to know if this method worked for you… It’s been a winner for me every time!
