Naming Your Travel Blog

Naming Your Travel Journal
A you are writer or are you a hack? I am positive the majority of people who start Blogs have a dream of being a writer.

Travel Journal --- --- Travel Bag Survey

I just was reading what I thought was a Honduras Blog and realized the person was talking about the Palace I visited in Korea. There is nothing wrong with this, there was a turn in the path...

I truly believe people should take a longer pause before they name their Blog and if in doubt, name it after themselves. I would rather read Joe Blow Blog that to know the whole Blog is off topic.

Trust me about this off topic thing, I get tons of ugly mail from readers who only want me to write about travel.

Choose a good name, it is the first test of your writing ability.

Good advice; I am often mislead by blog titles.


Dude you need to get a life and do something constructive. We realize you are number one. But have some humanity and use your knowledge/business sense to give back. All the cons and me number one is getting old. Old hobos usually die beside the track trying to jump on that train back into the past. Is this all your old ass can help people with. You need a good boot up your ass and thrown out of the boxcar.

I think it is best if you call yourself a travel blog to stay on topic because that is what people are visiting for. Same thing applies with Twitter. If I follow someone on Twitter and they present themself as a traveler then I really want the majority of their tweets to be travel related.

When I change countries I lose readers because I went off topic.

Title a blog so any comment is acceptable and work hard to delete readers who care when you go off topic.
