Need help with naming a blog.

Hey Warriors. I'm starting an opinion/humor/creative fiction/generally personal blog.

I need some help coming up with a good name for it (this will be the domain name too).

If possible, I'd like to keep it short and catchy.

Some names I've had suggested so far:

Nowhere in Particular
Pointless Crap that Makes People Angry
Blah Blah Blog

And that's it so far.

I you guys are plenty creative, and I'd love to hear your ideas. Thanks.

Joshua

    Wow, that's a tough one - for me anyway!! You're covering such a wide array of topics I'm not sure how you can pinpoint it all in one title.
    You might want to consider a few different blogs each being on just one or more of your topics.
    Afraid my creative juices are asleep right not but... maybe

    "anything goes"?? "free flowing thoughts"?? maybe just your name something like - "John's 2 cents for the day" - "for what it's worth"??

    Definitely, asleep at the wheel right now!! Sure you can get some much better suggestions from many others here.

    There are name generating tools that might inspire, WordLab is also good for coming up with brand names and slogans, try these:

    Wordlab | Home | The naming and branding community

    Naque's Word Mixer » unique-names.com

    RhymeZone rhyming dictionary and thesaurus

    Domain Suggestion Tool - NameTumbler.com

    Congratulation to create your new blog.
    I think you should choose your blog name by you. That is the better satisfaction of a person.

    Pretend like you're that guy on Saturday night live that did all the silly nicknames when he saw someone. Josharoni JoshbyGosh Joshaloshabingbang. You get my drift.
    If it's a personal blog, no need to use any keywords aside from perhaps your name
    have you thought of joshuarigley.com ?

      Yeah, I thought of that, but it's kinda boring. I'm looking for something more interesting than that.

    Hmm. This is a tough wide range. A ton of names can be appropriate and be thought of for this.

    Randomjosh.com
    Welcometonothing.com
    arrivingatnowhere.com
    destinationnone.com

    Good luck.

      Thanks for that.

      If it helps, I've decided to stay out of political opinions (for now), because the last thing I need in my life is more negativity. I'll be focusing on the "creative writing" bit of it, where I publish short stories online.

    hmmm... not sure of the availability of domain names for any of these but maybe some will help spark more ideas. The Rigley Report, Yanking your Chain, Spins and Grins, Worthy Ramblings, Useful Absurdities, Views Not News, Rocking the Boat, Irrational Clarity or a play in one of MarthaD's suggestions, My2Cents or My2Sense.

    What i did when i'm hunting for a domain name is by using the online thesaurus to find a different word to what i want just in case the domain is not available. It does help me out and maybe that method can help you out on this too.

    Okay, nothing personal intended by the following suggestions, but do I sense that you want something unusual? If so...

    MediocreFred
    SurvivingMyMind
    MalePatternBrainless
    PartlyInPart
    NotNormallyNormal
    MentalCuds
    MindCuds
    LimpingBrain
    StainedThoughts
    EpicSmallness
    BigLittleMedium
    DipWhistle
    BeepInMyHead
    ThinkThunkThought

    The .com was available for all of those at the time of this post. Mediocre Fred is kind of an inside joke. Personally, I like ThinkThunkThought the best. I was tempted to buy it myself.

    It will be interesting to see what you choose, whether it's from one of our suggestions or something you come up with on your own.

        I don't think you'd get away with this one -

        Rigley's Chewing Gum

        because there's a very similar sounding chewing gum (Wrigley's)

        I wonder about

    When choosing a domain name there are some factors to consider:

    * How original and unique is it?
    * How descriptive is it?
    * What image does it convey?
    * Would you remember it after seeing it once?
    * Could you spell it after hearing it once?

      That's not necessarily true. The best inspiration comes from the least likely sources.

      @enlightenedone: Yes, but I don't want to give the impression of it "being all about me". That's kinda egotistical and boring.

      Hi Joshua,

      I think it will be better for you to prone down the areas you want to cover so that you will be able to properly target unique visitors.

      This is not saying that your idea is entirely bad.

      I will suggest that you check up some keywords in these niches you want to cover and use two or three words from there as the name of your url.

      I believe it wont be quite hard to do.

      All the best!
