First Things First – Naming a Blog is Hard

6 Sep

So when I decided that I wanted to start a blog I thought of all the great things I can write about and how entertaining my life can be…what I didn’t think about was how difficult it was going to be to come up with a name for my blog.

I tried coming up with ideas and basically the only things I could think of at first were in reference to my name.

The Blair Bitch Project.  –> funny but I didn’t want people to think I was just going to be bitching about everything on here so that was nixed.

‘Blair’ing It Out.  –> or really anything using my name to mean blare.  Not really “hitting the spot” so those were nixed too.

I wanted something that fit me perfectly which meant it needed to be catchy and funny.

I asked my family and a few friends for their help (thanks btw) and they gave me ideas to work off of but nothing jumped out at me screaming “I’m the perfect name!”

It took about a week of getting opinions from people on what they thought of me.  The results?

  • short
  • bitchy
  • sarcastic
  • funny
  • sassy

Thanks for the compliments?  Who knew I was so pleasant to be around…  (eventually they said I was nice,sweet, etc. but that was too far down the list for comfort.  Suppose I should work on that, huh?)

After a little over a week of wracking our brains to finding some decent ones only to discover they were taken (ugh), we finally had the perfect fit!

You’ll have to bare with me along the process of writing this blog because I am technologically illiterate and have never done something like this before.  If you have any advice or good tipsies, I will always welcome it!  Feel free to comment on here or send me an email at
