Good Blog Name Ideas

Good Blog Name Ideas

A good blog name expresses the idea of your blog quickly and succinctly. Ideally it should be the same or similar to your domain name and should leave open the possibility of blogging about pretty much anything you want to include.

Don’t be too specific

Don’t be too niche in your blog name or you will limit your blog to only what that title includes. For example if you want to blog about anything and everything related to animals you shouldn’t call your blog ‘dog grooming for beginners’! Try to choose a name which captures the essence of what you intend to blog about and doesn’t limit you. Similarly you shouldn’t be too general and a good blog title will suggest what that specific blog is about. Being too general will leave no clue as to what your blog is about.
