How to Name Your Blog

Ok, I am by no means a professional blog namer, but I would like to share with y’all my quick little blog-naming method. The Thrifty Mermaid is not my first rodeo, I used to have a travel blog called Lauren in Wanderland. I’m not in Wanderland anymore, I’ve settled down a bit, with this cutie:


But that’s besides the point. When my bestie, Danielle, came to me and told me she wanted to start her own blog, I was super thrilled because 1. She’s hilarious and brilliant and 2. I really miss her and want to hear/read all about her life. She lives by the beach in North Carolina with her sweet, southern hubby and their two precious pups. The only thing was she needed help coming up with a name. I mean, even if you have 200 ideas for great posts, you can’t get started until you come up with the name! It can get pretty frustrating and it’s a lot of pressure because you’ll be stuck with this name FOREVER! Um, unless you change it, of course 🙂

So this brings me to my totally fool-proof method of blog-naming. It’s super profesh, and trust-worthy. Here it is:


You just grab a piece of paper, write down all words that come to mind that you want to express in your blog, and then you wait. I texted this pic to Danielle, sipped on some coffee, and stared at this and waited for words to pop out. We brainstormed back and forth, and finalllllllllllyyyy….within, like, 20 minutes…Coastal Corner Office was born! It’s that simple. I’ve tried using all of the name-your-blog generators and stuff out there, but they always spit out something cheesy and boring (I’m not saying The Thrifty Mermaid isn’t cheesy…it’s pretty cheesy but I like it 🙂 ) This method just works.

You can check out Danielle’s blog here. It’s all about beach life, working remotely, her 2 sweet pups, and life as a newlywed! I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Also, I know that a lot of people out there use Bloglovin’ to read their daily blog posts, so you can find The Thrifty Mermaid on Bloglovin’ here. They used to have a button for WordPress blogs, but it is no longer compatible with the site (or so I’m told by the email I received). If you do not already have Bloglovin’, I would highly suggest subscribing! It makes it a cinch to read all of your favorite blog posts, all on one feed! You can sign up here. 

Thanks for reading this silly little post! If it helps at least one person out there name their blog, then it was worth it! I’d love to hear in the comments below if you have any tips or tricks for blog-naming! Thrift on!
