None of the above? Why is your blog account called what you called it? Did you spend h-o-u-r-s contemplating every word in the Oxford English Dictionary to find the only possible alternatives were those along the lines of ‘Hello I’m A Blog Account‘ or ‘My Blog Account’? No? Oh. Just me then. I think they call it “Thinking Inside Of The Box”.
There are always certain “rules” for picking a name for whatever it is in this universe you are naming…a blog account, youtube, a baby…too far? Probably. But all are vaguely the same:
1. “The essentials: Short, catchy and memorable– easy to pronounce and spell.”
This, my fellow (non-existent) friends, is why the majority of blog accounts are named “Lord Of The Fries” or “Thai Tanic”. Or worse still “Planet Of The Grapes”; which quite frankly are elongated, utterly child-hood ruining, and damn right memory illegal. But I love them, personally. And hate them, personally.
2. “The unspoken rules: avoid something similar to another already created invention”
LORD OF THE FRIES?! THAI FREAKING TANIC?! PLANET OF THE GOD DAMN GRAPES?!
My life. Just got. Justification.
“Word Press: Create a FREE website.”
F-R-E-E. No pay. English speak. Okay. Onwards.
4. Discoverable vs. Brandable: Strategy? Relying on search engines?
Quite frankly my life is strictly a ‘go with the flow’ zone. What is strategy. Perhaps
writing this blog is a strategy- because I will post it. TahDah. Strategy.
But in all seriousnessnessness, if you are serious about blogging, you might want to contemplate your life a little, and how to make it discovered by others. Not that I know a thing about that.
5. Be creative: Create your own word? Compound two whole words? (YouTube), use a phrase (Six Apart), blend smidgins of words together (Microsoft), tweak a word (Flickr).
So basically put down the dictionary, and pick up your brain…or a mobile phone. Either or. There are a million and two words out there, and about forty five and a half trillion adoptions of those and so on. Surely you can think of one? No, me neither.
Thank you for or for not reading this blog, either way I appreciate your presence, even if you are not aware of mine. *Sobs to self*
Til’ next Saturday,
