Creating a Blog Identity

Creating a Blog Identity

Most of you visiting me have your very own blogs.  Maybe you’ve been at it for years or maybe its a newer thing for you.  Either way, at one point you had to think of a name for your blog and maybe even a  URL to go with it.  It feels so permanent, doesn’t it?? I’ve been at this for twelve years now, since long before I was a mom.  My blog started as an online journal of sorts for me, with a small audience of close friends and family.  The url was easy…. I used my nickname, sweetsauer.com.  When it was time to come up with a title, I didn’t get too creative.  Mi Vida Ocupada translates to “My Busy Life”.  I chose to use Spanish to make it a little more catchy and it sounds so much cooler in Spanish. My tagline was “Daily excerpts of my busy life”.  Boring!!! This blog has become so much more than that to me.  So I have been thinking I need a new blog name.  I don’t have a specific focus, just a little of this and a little of that. I’d love some help if anyone is feeling creative today!!

Things I love and a little about me:

  • I’m a mom to Bash & Dash (nicknames of my 2 & 4yo boys)
  • My family means the world to me
  • Lover of sushi, tacos, hot dogs, chinese food, buffalo wings (food in general!)
  • Books, TV series, Music
  • School & Education
  • I’m a deep thinker, passionate, sensitive, fun
  • Taking photos with my Nikon
  • Adventures & Exploring
  • Scenic drives
  • the great outdoors
  • I love my Pink drink- I’m an ambassador for Plexus
  • I’m an inner-city elementary teacher

Anyone have any great ideas for a new blog title?  I’d love some help!

What is the name of your blog and how did you come up with it??

  1. I’m the WORST at coming up with blog titles! I have been through a few different ones myself. Sounds like we started out similarly in our blogging journey though! I started out on Live Journal about ten years ago, so almost as long as you! I’ll keep thinking of ideas for you and if I come up with something I’ll send it your way!

  2. Weirdly enough, I’ve had the same name since I started – almost 10 years ago. Shooting Stars is because it started with more of a focus on music, and we wanted to share information about more and up and coming artists aka shooting stars. I’m not sure what a good blog name would be though! I’m SO bad at that myself. Have you thought about something related to your name again? It can encompass a lot.

  3. I’ve been having this issue lately too! I’ve been blogging for 8 years? I think longer since before I started my current blog I was using myspace and livejournal lol. (Goodness I’m aging myself!) But I’ve had the same url/title and tagline for the entire time and I really want to change it up. Along with my background, which is atrocious but I’m having a hard time letting that go too! I really like alliteration, and something personalized like Sweet & Sauer if that’s your nickname, or Scenes from the Sauers, The Bash and Dash Diaries,… ok, that’s all I got right now. Good luck!

  4. If I wrote an “about me” list, we would have several in common. Unfortunately, I am not the best at blog titles and still second guess my choice on occasion. So my advice – go with your gut!

  5. The best blog names tell you who the blogger is, simply and quickly. I chose mine as a description of my online identity. Many blog names are trite so try to find one that reflects your individuality.
