Creating a new blog can be exciting and fulfilling. But I have found that many people struggle with the first step in creating a new blog, and that struggle is choosing a blog name. But do not fret! Several factors will help you decide on the perfect blog name for your new blog. The following tips discuss how to come up with a blog name. These tips will help make the process a bit simpler and less stressful.

Please be sure to use Google and social media outlets to search to check to see if someone else with the same name may be using it already.
Time To Brainstorm
If you decide that you do not want to use your name, it’s time to start brainstorming a list of words. First, come up with a few topics that you will be writing about. For example, if your going to be writing about blogging, a few words for your list would be “how to blog,” “blogging for beginners,” “how to create a blog.”
Next, start brainstorming words that you may use when writing about these topics. Make a list of words that come to mind. After you have created a list, play around with the words. Put words together and see if anything sounds appealing. Add your words to a Thesaurus to see other words that might be compatible. You will be surprised how much this helps!
