Why did you choose your particular blog title? Was there a reason behind it or was it just a random choice?
When I decided to start a blog, I wanted to address women over 50 who were usually suffering from empty nest syndrome. The women I was interacting with had lost the verve and joy of living and were just existing day to day.
Keep it alive was the title that I came up with to encourage them to keep the flame of appreciation of life, burning bright. It also was a note to myself to keep my interest in life and living, alive. To not just exist but to live life fully.
I am happy to say that I am satisfied with my blog title and its effects.
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?
It really depends upon the content of the blog. A catchy title, without interesting content to back it with won’t attract readers for long. While a blog title which depicts the blog’s direction and its content can really do wonders to increase the traffic. But at the end of the day, it’s the content that matters, whatever the blog title is.
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 blog under the name Sadje@ Keepitalive .
This gives my fellow bloggers a name to address me with. The people who have the same name as their blog can confuse their readers and followers as to how to address them. Like if a blog is called sunny thoughts and so is the blogger, how will you address them? Sunny? Or thoughts? A bit confusing as I said. Otherwise do what you are happy with.
Thank you Tanya for these very interesting questions.
