I have been thinking about blog names a bit lately... I am not good at naming blogs... I named my Active Rain Blog Columbus Ohio. Columbus Ohio was my Active Rain Blog's second name*.
I love these Active Rainers choice for a blog title:
|All the Moo's that's fit to print|
|Reese's Pieces Of Real Estate
|"Singing in the Rain" (Rich Jacobson)
||Holy Toledo: Toledo, Ohio Real Estate Blog
I am stuck in a rut. I have historically, officially named three blog Columbus Best Blog.... I abandonded two of them both almost a year ago. Both blogs were started after the original Columbus Best Blog and only lasted a couple of weeks. I was thinking of switching blog platforms from RealTown Blogs a year ago. Very few people were using the platform and I was frustrated. The second Columbus Best Blog was on Blogster. I thought I was on Blogger... I found that blog yesterday. A week later I started the third Columbus Best Blog on Blogger. I went looking but I could not find that blog yesterday.
My first name for my Active Rain Blog was Columbus Second Best Blog*....dumb.
I noticed Don Fabrizio-Garcia's "CT Scan" yesterday. Clever. I have always admired Rich Jacobson's "Singing in the Rain" for it's cleverness. Of course Angus and Elaine are both marketing geniuses... I just noticed Nancy's today, "Holy Toledo" .... some of you are so clever!
I prefer geographic names to people's names when it comes to real estate blogs for some reason. I envy Carole Cohen in Cleveland for her name ... The three C's in Ohio are Cleveland, Cincinnati and Columbus or Carole Cohen and Cleveland. We have a highway named in honor of Carol, 3 C Highway....
Not all of the blog names I like are geographic, Elaines, Angus and Rich's have nothing to do with geography.. Angus and Elaine's are all about them but they are subtle, clever... not that there is anything wrong with it being all about YOU.
What other great blog names have you seen on Active Rain? Out in the blogoshpere? I hate to be a name dropper but did you see Sellsius° Blog (great name...) has a new years resolution to stop using the word "blogosphere" ????
Happy New Year! This is my first Active Rain Blog of 2007.
