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.
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.
