Blog name help!
Not sure if this is the right forum for this request, but here I go:
I just quit my job to become a SAHM to my 5 month old and I'd like to start blogging so I have some sort of intellectual outlet. My blog will be personal, obviously, but will also focus on the politics of motherhood - e.g., workplace policies, parental leave, daycare, breastfeeding v. formula feeding, etc. So I want to make sure the blog name isn't too cutesy (e.g., no "mommy" in the title), but I want it to be catchy! I'm just terrible at this sort of thing - I've been brainstorming for weeks and can't come up with anything good. Here are some examples of EXISTING blog names I like:
School of Smock
One Bad Mother
Fearless Formula Feeders
Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated! My husband suggested the name "superbudge" (we call our daughter "budge"), in response to which I just stared at him blankly.
hehe Superbudge is cute. What's your daughter's name? That would be fun to do a spin on.
I know a lot of people doing this sort of thing. If it's mostly going to be about the politics involved in motherhood (which is FASCINATING to me, so when you get this started, definitely let me know) then do a spin on that.
Budge for President
Balancing Budgette (This is my favorite)
And on and on and on. If it's going to be more day-to-day activities based, with just a bit of the harder stuff, Superbudge is actually adorable.
To Budge or Not to Budge
Sorry, Budge is too much fun to play with. But it's good to have a basis like that, to keep things interesting; otherwise you don't have a lot to work with.
Politics of Parenting
Politics of playdates (if you're not in America, don't use this)
Mother's Political Parenting
I like alliteration...
@celianne- to budge or not to budge is great! :)
Thank you so much! Love some of these - I especially like Policy Baby. It's a cute play on words and captures both aspects of the blog well.
I like alliteration, too. :)
Question - what do you think about philosophy of mom for a name? Too stodgy?
Philosophy of Mom is a tad stodgy. I really love Balancing Budgette.
'Philosophy of Mom' sounds a bit more contemplative than it sounds you'd like to be.
If you place the words 'political' or 'politics' too prominently then your blog will sound like it's *about* politics, as in national politics, not mommy-wars talking points. Likewise, if you put you're daughter's name/nickname prominently in the title it will sound like a prototypical mommy blog (you know, "look what adorable things my little angel did today, I am SO BLESSED"-type stuff).
You could play on something militaristic to emphasize the take-no-prisoners attitude many mothers have on these topics:
- World War Brood
- I'm a Mother, Not a Fighter
- A Shot in the Dark
- Hostile Territory
- Motherhood is a Force Multiplier
- Falling into the Boobie Trap
Blade, I think you nailed the balance I'm trying to achieve. Thank you so very much - excellent suggestions!!
