How to Pick a Domain Name for a Blog

Pick a domain name for your blog that says something about you and your blog. The domain name for a blog can be anything (assuming it isn’t already being used) — a company name, a nickname, or your favorite food group.

A domain is the address, or main URL, that people type in the browser to get to your Web site. Think of a domain like an address to your house. When someone looks for you, they can find your address. A domain name allows your site to be easily remembered by your readers, look more professional, and change Web hosts or hosted blog solutions at will.

-What is your blog going to be about?

If you’ve already chosen your niche, the answer to question one should be obvious. You should answer your question now if you’re still undecided.

Consider it logically.

You will have wasted your time if you choose a blog name and then blog about something unrelated. Imagine you choose the name ‘Genius Photography’ and then decide on the gaming niche.

If you choose a non-specific name or use your own name, you’ll have more flexibility.

However, I would recommend picking your niche first since it’s a valid exercise.

-What happens if you change or vary your niche?

Each of us starts a blog with the best of intentions to focus on a particular niche. However, things change. And sometimes your original idea changes.

That’s fine.

It is at that point where you’ll need to determine whether your brand and blog name are right for you. Are they open-ended enough to allow for a change in direction, or do you have to rebrand?

It’s a difficult question to answer since we don’t know what will happen in the future. It would be a better idea to choose a more generic, open-ended blog name if you have any doubts or ideas about changes.

It’s not the end of the world if you don’t. It’s not too late. The only risk is losing momentum in the process.
