As you choose your domain name for your website or blog, think it through thoroughly. It can be your name if the blog is all about you and your life. But if your blog or site is about boating, fishing, walking, hiking, climbing, cars, travel, sewing, crochet, or ceramics, specifically targetting a theme or subject, then make sure that is in the title of your domain helping people associate the subject matter with the domain name. Remember, creativity is fine but simplicity wins every time.
