One of the hardest things when starting a new blog is thinking of a great name for it. A good name will be punchy and memorable, often using alliteration, rhyme, or other linguistic devices to help it stick in the memory. The hard bit is not thinking of a good name, but thinking of a good name for which the domain name is available.
In fact, it's quite possible to waste hours and hours, and many sleepless nights thinking of an original name, when what you should be doing is thinking of the great content you are going to post on your blog.
Enter Picky Domains. Here for the sum of only $50 you can get over 40,000 brains thinking of a new domain name for your blog. And the best thing is that it is 100% risk free. If you don't like any of the domain names then you get your money back.
The process is simple. All you have to do is put up a brief description of the idea behind your blog, pay over $50, and wait while other minds do the work for you.
The names produced by Picky Domains are often inventive and amusing, for example for a website that says it's a "A diet, calorie, and weight loss tracker" they came up with EyesOnFries.Com which is a great use of rhyme to produce a memorable domain name.
One question that should be asked is should people be allowed to park domain names. Many people buy up available domains and then sit on them until a business comes along and wants to buy it for which they charge $1000s of dollars. Should legislation be passed to prevent people holding on to a domain name without a valid reason for doing so. Is it stopping start-ups from doing what they really should be doing? Let us know your thoughts on picking a domain for your new blog or business.
