Tool 26 – Finding a name for your Blog or Website
Posted by Helen Tonetti
I have been working with clients, developing Blog and Blogging ideas, never ever an easy task. It means doing loads of marketing exercises, understanding who you are targeting, what type of Blog do you want, whats the overriding message, why are you blogging and what are you going to talk about.
Then you need a name .. and that’s when I often use a few tools that really help to get the creative juices flowing and I thought you may like to use them.
dotomator ; A web 2.0 naming engine that creates some fun web 2.0 names and stores them in a list as you generate them. It can also give you tips and check domain availability.
Suggest Name : This is another Web 2.0 generator which uses words like tech, fancy and other descriptive words for your prefix and suffix. You can combine your own words plus use words they recommend to create a list of results. You can even generate a scratch-board which allows you to keep the combinations that you liked the most. After completed you can check to see if the domain name is available. Of course you also want to check if the name is available for your blog platform if you’re using Blogger, WordPress.com, or Tumblr.
Tell us what your Blog name is – or if these help you come up with an amazing new name.
