‘Do I have any ideas for a blog name?’
Your second step is to start formulating your blog name ideas, in other words, this is the brainstorming process. This step helps you to gain more clarity and allows for some creative space to play with as many possible options as you can to find the right ‘fit’.
The brainstorming process can include the use of mind mapping techniques, free form writing, or using imagery to find new ideas like pictures in magazines or newspapers.
It is recommended that you have 4 to 5 keywords you really like and from there you can use the process of elimination to find the name that will lead the way for you.
Tip to remember: when choosing the right name stick to a catchy, fun, easy-to-understand name, in other words, short and sweet.
The last step involves some research to double-check if your name has not been used already, this will also safeguard you legally when you eventually choose to register your name, even if it is your blog name, which is used within your business / brand name.
