There are a few blog pieces going around explaining the reason behind their respective blog names, which I love. Thinking Play pointed out a few blogs and delivered analysis of them, including yours truly:
“Bio Break – It’s a common MMO term, so it clues me in that the blog is about MMOs and MMO culture. Also given what the term means it sounds like the blog doesn’t take itself too seriously, and is friendly and approachable.”
I’d say that this is fairly spot-on. I love alliteration and short titles, and Bio Break fits those criteria. I liked the idea that reading a blog article was a “break” between gaming, since I often read others when I couldn’t be in-game. And I do hope I don’t take myself too seriously/pompously, because where’s the fun in that?
A good blog title is essential to branding your future content and being the foundation on which you build your reputation and blogging portfolio. Giving it some serious thought and consideration is paramount. I’m always a little in awe of the great titles I see out there.
