Coming up with just the right title for your blog can be nerve-wracking — we often decide what sites to visit (or skip) based simply on a title. Do you go clever? Punny? Long and descriptive, or short and cryptically punchy? Should it include your name? Does it offer enough context?
Scared? Don’t be! To help, we’ve been talking to bloggers about how and why they landed on their great names, so we can share the wisdom.

The year 2010 was big for me, with a 2,000-mile walk in the US and three months living with a girlfriend in Switzerland (to see if it would work). It didn’t, but the walking was great! I was then back home in Australia, broke and glum and kinda stranded, so I started a blog.
We stumble upon sites across WordPress.com with great names. Periodically, here on The Daily Post, we’ll chat with bloggers on how they chose the perfect blog name. Recently, we talked with Sean Manning at Talking Covers. Today, we’d like to introduce Alli Burness, the writer and museum professional at Museum in a Bottle.
Last fall, we talked to two writers on WordPress.com about how they picked their blog names.
