As a travel blogger, my business name should probably be something like, Emma the Traveler or Adventures with Emma.
Instead, my blog is named Emma No Problema. Why?
Well, it’s a funny story.
When I was in high school I used to refer to everything I did as an “adventure.” Going out for lunch during my free period? Lunch adventure. Heading to the mall after school? Shopping adventure. Walking to the nurse’s office? Band-Aid adventure. My friends would joke that I should have my own TV show about my daily adventures. We decided that it would be a spin-off of Dora the Explorer and it would be called, Emma No Problema.
Well, I had no interest in creating a TV show but I had always wanted to be a writer so I decided to write about my adventures instead.
Now, when I’m out with friends I am frequently teased about my blog name when I run into a problem. They say, “Wait, I thought Emma had no problemas?”
Guess I should’ve seen that one coming.
When choosing a name for your blog, here are a few tips:
- Make it personal, choose something that means something to you
- Let it reflect your personality and the vibe you’re going for; You’re not boring, don’t pick a boring name
- Consider including something in your name that indicates what it’s about (I didn’t do this, so I need to be especially clear what my blog is about in every other area of my website).
