Last time I introduced you to this new item ‘Fashion Blogger Stories’. This time I want to point out the subject of choosing a name.
Do you remember how you chose your blog name? Or maybe you are still looking for one to start a fashion blog. For me this subject was kind of difficult. A blog name that fits my personality, style and also sounds good.
I was in a car with friends when this issue came up. (‘I just can’t find a suitable name, help me please!’)
My friend asked me what my purpose was and I started chatting that for me it was all more about style than following the latest fashion all the time. I guess you see it coming now.
He simply said, why don’t you call it that way? just like you’re describing it.
How to start a Fashion Blog: Finding a name
Some fashion bloggers use their own name, which can be perfect . Just not in my situation.
My name is just too long (double last name) and too Dutch to go international haha..
And a nickname did not appeal to me, I am not a pop artist 😉
So what’s in a name?
I think the personality of your blog should be in it. Take for example The Blonde Salad. A salad includes various ingredients which makes the perfect dish. She is broadly oriented and interested (fashion, travelling etc.) Great name, one you will remember easily because it sounds somehow goofy, funny and interesting at the same time.
Or Dutch blogger Jenny from the Blog. Remember Jennifer Lopez’ song ‘Jenny from the block’? I think this is a perfect pun on this song title.
A play on words, or an amusing rhyme, but also a person’s name or a hidden meaning can work well.
Questions for yourself due to a blog name:
- How unique is it?
- Will people remember it?
- What perception/reaction does it give?
- Is it pronounceable?
Found your unique name? Check the hosting pages for the url as soon as possible! When you finally find a name, you don’t want to be disappointed in case the url is already taken.
