Choosing the Perfect Blog Name: Two WordPressers Share Their Secrets

Okay… choosing the perfect domain name is something a lot of bloggers struggle with – especially the newbies.

When I decided to name my blog “PBW &Beyond”, it was a happy decision. This was because PBW & Beyond reflected the frequency, topics and style of my writings on this blog. I choosed PBW & Beyond because I came to the realization that on some days, I might prefer to share a topic that relates to writing and blogging. And on other days, I might prefer to share any ramblings that interest me in the form of reblogs or rough notes.

So, I don’t care how long you’ve been struggling with the concept around your domain name. One thing I can say is that this post from interviewing two wordpress bloggers on their blog names might influence your blog name decision.

At the end of the day, you just have to go with what works best for you and your audience. Just make sure it is easy to pronounce and memorable enough to spell.

Enjoy this post.

The Daily Post

We discover different types of blogs in our community, from travel to food to parenting, with memorable and clever names. You may notice that a number of blogs on WordPress.com have unique web addresses, or custom domains: instead of mysite.wordpress.com, their address is mysite.com. Bloggers get custom domains for different reasons, but ultimately, it’s a great way to build and solidify your presence across the Internet. You can register a new domain through WordPress.com; you can also use a domain you already own with your WordPress.com site, which is called domain mapping.

A crucial step before purchasing a custom domain is deciding on the right name for your blog. Since selecting a name that best reflects your content is so important, we wanted to share insights from two writers on WordPress.com — Sarah and “C.J.’s Mom” — on how they ended up with names they were happy with.

Young and free?

Age should not be the reason you lose your sense of freedom. Despite the trials and temptations you face, create time to enjoy your gift of liberty…. coz when there’s life, there’s hope.

Remember those times when we ran around shirtless..
Those times when we danced in the rain,
Those times when we played with dirt, and cared less what people thought…

We were able to scream at the middle of the store because we did not get that candy we wanted
We were able to climb a tree or throw stones at it..
We were aware of the consequences but taking the risk was exciting!
We were able to say things the way they came to our minds…absolutely no filter!
We were free….

Now are we getting old and guarded?…
No!!!…..redefine free..
Go see places you have never seen before,
Go lay under the stars

Climb to the top of a mountain and shout as loud as you can
Be bold. Be fearless. Love with passion!
Aim for those aspirations they said u could not achieve…

Freedom does not end as the…

Through it all, there was a dog

Dogs are wonderful creatures. Although they are known to be man’s best friend, they have an nice way of communicating to their owners.

My dogs are named Tussy and Warrior. I lost their mom (Nita) to death at the beginning of this year.

With a dog in your life, there is always a lesson to be learned in your relationship with them. By the way, it’s also a therapeutic relationship.

Do enjoy this piece from Jen.

The Trailhead

Seven years ago, when my first marriage of fifteen years unexpectedly went belly up, I was involuntarily launched on what Joseph Campbell calls the Hero’s Journey. There are other names for this kind of experience. The writer Elizabeth Lesser calls it the Phoenix Process. Dante called it “the dark woods.” Whatever you call it, it’s a time of upheaval, pain, and eventually, transformation.  And to be sure, the year I spent ending my marriage and recovering – perhaps from the marriage as much as the divorce – was one of the most powerful and potent of my life. I still look back on it with a sense of respect and awe.

What I didn’t understand for a long time, though, was that the year of my divorce was only the beginning of a much longer voyage. Life had a great deal more in store for me than merely the end of…
