Choose the Best Blogger URL?

Your Blogger URL is the username that is displayed as part of your blog address. Because Blogger is the host of the blog, most Blogger URLs will look something like, or Your blog is hosted as a subdomain on the Blogger servers, and supported by advertising, which is what gives you the ability to have a free blog. You will want to be sure to choose a catchy Blogger URL to entice visitors to come to your site. 

The first step when choosing a Blogger URL is to determine if you want your blog to be anonymous or identifiable as you. This is because many people choose to use their first and last names, or a combination thereof, as their username. This can be a good choice because it makes you easier to find, as well as making it more likely that your desired username will still be available. In general, try to avoid adding numbers at the end of a username; not only are they difficult to remember, but they tend to look unprofessional. 

If you decide to go with something other an a first or last name for your Blogger URL, try to make it relevant to your blog, or give it some sort of meaning. Don't just pick a random word out of the dictionary. If your blog is a personal blog, try to think of a username that pertains to you and your interests. If it's a photo blog or music blog, the same rules apply. A URL with meaning will be much more memorable. 

When selecting a Blogger URL, make sure everything is spelled correctly. Even though it may be easier to get a username that is spelled incorrectly, it will make it more difficult for visitors to find your site. In addition, try to keep your Blogger URL as short as possible, which makes it more memorable. Long URLs may seem interesting and unique, but they are tough to spell and remember.

Again, remember that the purpose behind choosing your Blogger URL is to make it easy for people to find and remember your site. If you plan to use your blog as part of your resume or portfolio, be sure the URL is professional and appropriate for people of all ages to see. As a general rule, it is a good idea to imagine that anything you post on the Internet can be read by everyone you know, from your grandmother to your boss. Be creative, but be aware of what you are posting.
