Blogging Insights- Naming name!

Tanya is the host of Blogging Insights


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.

  1. I called My blog the cancer bus because I was tired of people saying after they knew that I had metastatic breast cancer or stage for breast cancer that everybody’s going to die you could be hit by a bus. That’s where the name cancer bus comes from. It’s a little bit morbid I suppose but it’s also a little bit tongue in cheek and my blog is both. My blog also contains poetry and I hope as a poet nobody wants to run me over by a bus.

  2. Wonderful answers Sadje! You probably don’t know this, but your blog title “life after 50 for women” got me reading your blog, and then becoming a follower of said blog. It caught me and it’s never disappointed. Just like you!

  3. I called mine The Imaginary Bureau because that’s how I could see my stories being captured only now the tools of my blog is not pen & paper but my phone, my laptop or my notepad. Plus I think it speaks for itself. It’s all about my imagination.

  4. I came in knowing next to nothing about blogging so my Blog name is similar to my name. Have thought about changing it, but my blog is all over so there is nothing to nail it down to. I do agree that no matter what the name is it has to have good content. Good answers Sadje!
