Admit it: you’ve started a blog at some point in your life. I don’t care if you’re a washed up hockey player who dipped into interiors or a marketing grad who thought she could make it in the world of fashion. You’ve either done it, or you’ve considered doing it but stopped because you couldn’t figure out how to set up a Blogspot. For every abandoned, month-long attempt at becoming the Gwyneth Paltrow of the blog world, I’ll show you someone that’s embarrassed to tell you that they couldn’t figure out how to delete their blog after they neglected to post on it for a couple months.
And not to rain on anyone’s parade, but most “bloggers” have miserably uninspired names, despite their efforts to “stand out” and “show the world what they’re passionate about.” Which is why I’ve come up with the perfect formula to generically name your basic blog.
To find yours, follow this formula as drawn out below:
Generic Pre-Cursor (Month of Birth)
+ Foodie-Ism (First letter of first name)
+ Fashion Phrase (First letter of last name)
+ Overused Quote/Catchphrase (Day of Birth)
My name is Will deFries and I was born on January 2nd, so my blog name would be Adventures in Wine & Diamonds: Fluent in Sass based on the criteria listed below.
Matthew McConaughey (November 4) would be The Little Black Book of Macaroons & Mascara: Eat Pray Love.
Or, Carrie Bradshaw (January 15) would be Adventures In Caviar & Blazers: I’m So Awkward.
Beat that, basics.
