How to come up with a catchy blog name

Picking a blog name is one of the most important things you would do when setting up a blog. I remember when I was thinking of the best name for my blog. My goal then was to blog solely on fashion, but as the blog evolved, I started to write about other topics I was passionate about. I decided on naming my blog Fashion and Style Police because the blog was going to be about fashion and style. And adding police to the blog name made it more catchy. So I went with it and Fashion and Style Police was born! Looking back after 7 years, I don’t regret picking this blog name. I may have gone with a slightly different version, but this blog name still works for my blog content.

How to come up with a catchy blog name

So how do you come up with a catchy blog name? Here are some tips for you –

 

Consider what the blog would be about

This will help you narrow down your blog name ideas. Ideally, the blog name should reflect what the blog would be about but you can decide to go for a name that means something to you. Your readers will get used to it and likely love it, as long as the next tip is followed.

 

Go for a catchy blog name

Catchy blog names are the best. You can look around online for inspiration or check out Thesaurus for fab ways to play with words. Your blog readers will never forget your blog if it comes with great content and a catchy name.

 

Go for a .com domain

I always advise people to go for a .com domain if possible. It makes the url flow easier and it helps your blog readers remember your blog name faster. Also, .com domains are more universally accepted.

 

Use your own name

If you can’t think of the best name for your blog, you could just name it after you. Many bloggers have done it and have become pretty successful. It all depends on your blog’s style and what you want. For those struggling with what to name their blogs, going down the self named route could be your best bet.

 

Inspiration is everywhere

If you are still struggling to come up with a blog name, you could get inspiration both offline and online. Tv shows and books are great for getting inspiration. My blog name is partly inspired by a fashion tv show on E.

 

Picking the right blog name is so important. A good blog name along with great content can take your blog to dizzy heights.

Get your blog ready for the new year

Season Greetings guys! How is everyone getting ready for the holidays? We are excited here. Definitely caught the Christmas bug in our house. It has been very busy here but I am finally slowing down and getting into the jolly mood. I am done with uni work for the year and I won’t be posting on Fashion and Style Police as often as I usually do for the rest of this year. I want to take some proper time off and just do nothing. The holidays is a great time to relax and bond with the family. It is also a great time to get your blog ready for the new year.

Get your blog ready for the new year

How do you get your blog ready for 2020? Here are 3 ways you could do this before this year ends –

 

Take a good look at your blog

Before you can successfully improve something, you have to know what needs improving. This rule applies to everything including blogs. To improve your blog, you need to take a good honest look at it and look for ways you could improve it. It could be the blog name, theme, blog layout/design, or domain. There is always room for improvement, so take a good look at your blog and look for ways to improve it for the new year.

 

Improve your photography game

Blogs are visual, which means your pictures have to look pretty. No one would read a great post if the pictures in the blog post are poor quality. Pictures have the power to attract more eyeballs to your blog posts so work on improving your photography skills this holiday. You could take a photography course, play around with picture editing tools like Lightroom, Photoshop and the likes, so you know how to make the most of the pictures you do take.

In other to have great content for 2020, you should start researching blog topics now that would work great for your niche. That way you have interesting blog post ideas lined up ready to go for the new year.

 

The holiday period is usually quiet on the big wide web, as many people are offline having a life. Which makes it the best time to work on your blog and get it ready for the new year. If you want to improve your blog and start making money off it in 2020, get in touch to find out more about my blog coaching service.

I may be back on here before Christmas but just incase I am not, here’s, me wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy new year in advance.

Getting Serious About Your Blog As A Business

*Collaborative post.

More and more people are thinking about turning their blogging passion into a full-time business, and there are certainly many wonderful reasons to do so. The thrall of money is of course one of the top ones, but it is not the only reason. It is also a chance to exercise a particular joy that you have, and to share your own unique opinion and stance on things with the wider world. Nonetheless, turning your blog into a fully-fledged business has its challenges which you will need to deal with and overcome: what are they?

How Much Of A Venture?

The first thing you will need to decide upon is just how much of a business venture you want your blog to be. This is entirely up to you, and it is important to remember that the sky’s the limit. Of course, most commonly it is simply a matter of monetizing it, but ultimately keeping it as a kind of stay-at-home business. But if you want to set your sights higher, there is nothing technically stopping you looking through www.proplist.com for some commercial property and turning this into a fully-fledged operation. Whatever you feel is appropriate for your blog.

 

Writing Great Content

No matter how big you do desire to take it, there is one thing that is always going to remain the case, and that is that you need to write consistently great content. The better your content, the more of a chance you have of real success with your business, so this really is an important thing to bear in mind. This is true if it is just you writing at home, or if you have started up a whole team of writers to blog on different subjects under one company name. The content is always king.

Selling Products

One of the simpler ways to monetize a blog is to sell products alongside it. This is easy enough to do: the first challenge is to decide on what products are going to be saleable as a part of your blog’s brand, and which your customers are likely to actually click through to and buy. Sometimes, there is a match-up that just lends itself beautifully, such as a freelance writer’s blog selling the writer’s own books. But sometimes you will have to be a little more creative if you are to find the match. However, it is always possible.

 

Advertising

Another way to make money from your blog, and a method which could be enough to legitimize it as a business of its own accord, is to sell advertising space on your website. If you get enough visitors, then you will find that this is an incredibly effective money-maker. Of course, a lot of people prefer the idea of selling their own products through their blog, but if you want to go down this route then there is nothing wrong with that either. If you need help with this, take a look at www.lifewire.com

If you can focus on these things, you should be making money from your blog in no time.
