Nickname for a Blogger. How to Create an Original Name.
Becoming a successful blogger has become a goal for many people today. The thing is that blogging is an effective tool for earning money as well as marketing one’s products. Most companies have a blog where they share latest news about their products and services. This is a good indicator of how blogging has become a big part of our lives today, including the area of business. There are also many who use blogs for personal purposes, such as sharing their own thoughts and feelings with online communities in order to get some feedback and exchange messages with other people. But for all blogs there is one thing that has a great significance – blog identity. And this identity starts with a good nickname. It may well be that corporate blogs don’t need such a thing as a nickname (although we believe the opposite is actually true) but no one will argue that personal blogs do require an attractive nickname to be successful.
How to Choose a Nickname?
There are some who underestimate the importance of a good nickname. But the truth of the matter is that most people evaluate a blog by the appearance as well as the name of the author – something they usually see prior to reading any blog entries. Therefore, it is important that you create a nickname that will reveal your identity and be an attention grabber for readers. The question is where do people get good blogger names? How good nicknames are created? Well, here are some thoughts that may help you answer these questions.
First of all, you need to concentrate on those nicknames that would be relevant for the content of your blog. It wouldn’t make any sense if you had a nickname like “Diesel” for a medical type of a blog. The name you choose must be relevant and catchy. It is easier if you already have been blogging for some time – all you need is to look at your content and see what things you are writing about. If you never had your first blog entry posted yet, then you may want to think everything through before you create a nickname.
Secondly, good blogger names are not only niche narrow but they also say something about the owner of the blog. It should be consistent with either who you are in real life or with the image you want to create with your blog. It will help you become more popular because people love when they see bloggers reveal their identities (they don’t necessarily have to know that this identity is only virtual). That is the advantage of a blog – you can be whomever you wish. There are no limits here; the only limit is your own imagination.
Thirdly, take time to search some of the good nicknames online. You don’t have to use those you like but some of them may lead you to great ideas. If you found a great pseudonym for example, you can slightly change it or shorten it. You can also check some of the nickname generators available online – they can also bring you some decent ideas. While doing these things you should have a pencil and a piece of paper so that you can note down worthy options. Besides, seeing the name visually will also help you evaluate how good it looks.
Lastly, try out the nickname you think would be best for you by sharing it with your friends and people that you know. See what they have to say about it. It is always good to have some fresh look at it because it is likely that you won’t be able to objectively evaluate your own pseudonym after spending several hours on creating it.
