What Did You Call It?

When your kids were little, you either spent numerous hours flipping through a baby book or scrolling down baby names online. Or you may have had that one name picked out since your own childhood that you knew you would someday name your baby.

Many times names  come from tradition. We name our sons after their fathers and so forth down the  line. We name our daughters after our mothers or grandmothers and so forth. We might pick a name that is special to us in some way.

But, you get the idea. A name is an important thing. Just as you would name your baby, naming your blog should consist of the same process. Only you wouldn’t name your baby “Happy Scrapper,” or “Grammar Girl.” Or would you?

Sometimes we can take the false perceptions of others and twist them to our advantage. Like the author of MEMIORS OF A WHITE TRASH MOTHER.

Catch Phrases, taglines, simple names.

Your blog is like your baby. It’s a big commitment and attaches itself at your hip. You will carry it along where ever you go (okay, maybe not everywhere.)

Now it’s time to give it a name.

The big question becomes: What do you call it?

There is no simple formula to creating a name for your blog. But just like when you name your child, you want to keep in mind how hard of a task you’re putting on your child
to spell their name in kindergarten. So you lay down the same task on your blog
in order for your readers to find you.

Take your answers from the last three days.

What is your purpose?

What is niche’?

Now sum it up in one to three words.


Daughter of a dairy farmer, this crafty mom has a heart for all things handmade. When she's not writing or crafting, you can find her creating memories with her family.
