Advantages and disadvantages of using names
Want to be able to choose your name? The best decision of all! One of the biggest benefits is that the whole process of blogging becomes synonymous with your profile and spreads your name further. If you’re posting guest posts, it’s best to be considered an authority in your niche.
On the other hand, consider the meaning of your name in the context of your chosen location. Most likely no big deal. For example, if your name is Joseph and you want to write about a travel blog, your name is meaningless. But that’s not a problem. JosephTravels.com, for example.
What if I get upset because of a name?
If you’re having trouble deciding on a name for your blog, you should start now, as many of us do. Anyways, go ahead! The importance of blog niche and title in blog popularity cannot be overstated.
Many popular entrepreneurs and bloggers have topics that have nothing to do with what they are discussing and presenting. I am living proof. Take Coca-Cola, Apple, Google and Amazon for example. Do the names of these companies matter if you don’t know who they are? not at all.
Can I rename my blog later?
Yes, you can rename your blog at any time. All you need to do is purchase a new domain name (worth about $10). The name you choose for your blog is key but you can always change it later.
What if the chosen name is not available?
When you start your blog with Bluehost, you can choose your domain name later. And if you don’t have the domain name you want, don’t worry about it – think of me when you get to choose your name later after everything else is set. I will have more time.
