I’m back with Dr Tanya at Salted Caramel where today’s burning questions are about why we chose our blog titles.
Why did you choose your particular blog title? Was their a reason behind it or was it just a random choice?
When I started my first blog, “Dolls, Dolls, Dolls” I was a brand new blogger. I couldn’t think of a clever title so I just went for the bleeding obvious. It’s what the blog is about. The second blog, originally named “My Other Blog”, was given that name because that’s what it was, another blog to write about every other subject but dolls (although they come up from time to time). When Naomi joined me it made sense to change it to “Our Other Blog”. The final change was to add the tagline, “Two Sisters and Two Points of View” to the title. This came about because WordPress was playing sillybuggers with a lot of blogs and our blog had disappeared from listings. Marilyn had experienced this problem with Serendipity and she found that changing the blog title rectified the problem so I did the same.
Do you think that a catchy, “click bait type” title does better or is a blog name that indicates the general purpose of the site more attractive for readers?
I am a hobby blogger not a “content maker” and did not choose either of the blog titles to act as click bait. I was too new and ignorant about blogging to even think of that but in any case I think that a title that reflects what the blog is about makes more sense. Unless, like Seinfeld, the blog isn’t about anything in particular, then why not make it catchy?
Some bloggers have the same user name and blog title? What is your opinion of this? OR Are you one of them? If so, could you share your reason for this?
I have no opinion about this. I think that people should do what they feel comfortable with.
