There are many reasons why people blog, but the most basic reason is to share. It is just that simple. Everything shared may not be interesting, worthwhile, or profound. However, whatever is shared has an audience. No matter what is written or how it is written, the post will appeal to someone. It will ring a bell, resonate and find a home in the heart of another blogger or reader. That is why blogging is so intriguing. It does not have to fit one particular mold. It is flexible. If you don’t like what you read/see, you move on.
For me, blogging and maintenance has become a relaxing activity to engage in at the end of the day. My once-a-week posting commitment and daily perusal of other blogs works well with my busy schedule. Since starting this online regimen, it has proven to be enlightening, informative, and even hilarious. Over the course of time, responses are more forth coming and I am getting to know my followers, recognizing their work and receiving their feedback. Likewise, I am more apt to comment on what I like, send kudos, and thumbs-up more readily.
A by-product of blogging is following and liking another blogger’s material. One of the first things that capture my attention is the blogger’s pseudo-name. I am drawn into wondering how they came about their name and the story behind it. Some names are easy to identify especially when you can tell it’s a person’s name or their pet’s. To help you understand what’s behind the name, their articles bare out their interests and makes the name choice clearer.
Paying close attention to those who connect with me through likes and follows, I often find myself reading their identifier to figure out what they are all about before I read their actual post (I know I’m not the only one who does this😊). For example, I go by the name “Itinerary Planner.” Self-explanatory, right? At least I hope so. Not all identifiers are that easy, but that may be the intention of the blogger. If so, mission accomplished. Still, many that I come across are puzzling and beg my attention, in such a way, that I conjure up possible meanings if it is unclear even after reading the post or from their specific posting tags and categories.
My moniker if you guessed, appropriately hints at what I like to do – organize events and plan customized vacations. I even have the tag all to myself on WordPress 😊. Other categories such as: itineraries, lifestyle, travel tips, places visited, food, accommodation, and more are of interest to me too. When these categories are intertwined with travel, then I receive palmary inspiration for the blog.
Some IDs are creative, some combined names, some phrases even. I simply like to guess what they are all about. I may be dead wrong at first, but hooked, I must find out who they are and where their interests lie.
So, what does your ID say about you? Does it make others go ‘hmmmm’ or is it clearly understood? Here are a few pseudo-names from my community of followers (sorry guys I can’t list all of you). Look at them, then check out their blogs to see if you guessed correctly. Your guess may be spot on or you may be in for a surprise.
Readers, I’ve playfully involve these few in this exercise, but alternatively, I hope it gives them more exposure and drive a lot of traffic their way. To do so you must click the links to their blogs below:
