It is bank holiday weekend here in London, day one and it is raining. This means I have time to sit down and choose the name for my blog and domain, make sure it is available.
Since I see this blog as an opportunity to express myself but not limited to just that and hope to have this platform throughout my adult life and improve on that I had to follow certain approach in choosing the name.
- Part of the selection process was to grade the domain using the Domometer website that tells if my desired name is a good one and how would it rate among all others on the Internet.
- Do some experimenting with Google Adwords to see what keywords people are using when looking for a particular connect and based on that I could check the availability of different domain names on NameStation’s bulk domain search, Unfortunately most of the domain names I had in mind were already taken, so I had to get a bit creative.
- Once I picked a good match, I registered it (GoDaddy) and made the WordPress account and all I have to do now is domain mapping which I will arrange in near future.
Notting Hill Carnival is tomorrow and the day after but I have some other things to focus on – the whole blogging idea is new to me and I hope to learn the ropes in due course.
Looking forward to revisit this post years from now when the perspective will be different, I will be more experienced, and my English will be much improved.
