A blog signed up to the Australian Blogs Community on Bumpzee the other day, and the blog name made me giggle – “Joh Blogs“. I’d never made the connection before, but how often did we hear “Joe Bloggs” as one of those imaginary (or placeholder) names. What a clever name for a blog, particularly if your name is Joh!
Choosing a name for your blog isn’t necessarily easy. If you enter the blogosphere with the intention of making a name, or brand, for yourself then you will pick your name, or a name that signifies what you do.
But the vast majority of recreational bloggers (who will generally blog on a hosted domain) need to get creative with their blog titles. Predominantly, because many of the first choice options are already taken, and secondly because for the most part they are anonymous.
I thought it would be interesting to go through this list and pick out the most unique, interesting, unusual or funny names for Australian blogs on the list (and one’s I haven’t mentioned before). A majority of these were “blogspot” blogs, and I have to applaud the originality of these bloggers.
